Black Mass Back Carpet for Mustang Convertible
Replacing the carpet in your Fox body Mustang is one of the easiest and most effective ways to improve the conditions of your interior. It is a simple, one person installation and can be done in just one day. Our high quality ACC Mass Back carpet is pre-formed and molded to fit your Mustang for a seamless, OE look. Carpet comes with the factory style heel pad and will re-carpet the entire passenger area from the firewall to the back seat. Installation will require cutting for bolt holes and trimming of excess material.
ACC pre-formed, molded Mustang floor carpet is made of heavy weight 16oz cut-pile carpeting combined with 40oz jute padding. This combination makes for a beautiful, long-wearing carpet. This weight coupled with a factory style backing gives your new Mustang carpet a "mold memory". Once it’s installed, it continues to shape itself to the contours of your floor. Remember, when you take it out of the carton, the weight of the carpet and padding will tend to cause it to "flatten out" but once it’s on the floor of your Mustang, it will return to shape.
Jute sound deadening material works in conjunction with the Mass Back to help insulate your Mustang from road noise and engine heat. ACC jute sound deadening meets federal standards for flammability retardation. It’s the perfect beginning when replacing your Mustang's carpet and to increase its durability.
Cut Pile Carpet Style
As is the case with many latemodel vehicles the latemodel Ford Mustang came from the factory with cut-pile style carpet. Cut pile carpet is a form of carpet that involves a strategic cut of the loops that are created during the weaving of a carpet. The loops are cut to the same height and allowed to tuft slightly. This approach gives the carpet pile the appearance of softness and often appears to be very dense and provides a cushion for the foot.
Auto Custom Carpet
Auto Custom Carpet is the world's leading manufacturer of automotive floor covering. We are proud to offer such high quality carpet for your Mustang. All ACC floor carpet is made to original Mustang specifications including correct heal pad, fastening material, and jute backing for a PERFECT FIT!
Better Sound Deadening & Insulation with Mass Back Carpet
What is Mass Back? Mass Back is a tough, rubber layer between the carpet and the jute insulation that increases form and rigidity, while decreasing road noise. The rubber is composed of ethylene vinyl acetate and is spread 40mil thick to add moldability, sound deadening, and insulation. Mass Back carpet more closely duplicates the original carpet that your Mustang came with from the factory.
Mass Back Carpet vs. Standard Replacement Carpet
All of the standard Mustang carpet on our website is priced to be made with polyethylene backing. This is the same carpet backing that is offered by just about every Mustang carpet retailer in the industry. Poly back carpet is a more economical option and is the most common option for aftermarket Mustang carpet. Please note that whether you choose standard poly back or Mass Back, the choice does not affect the quality of the carpet, or the way that the carpet will fit your Mustang.

JONATHAN MCDONALD: Hey, everybody. Jmac here with more interior tech. Today we're going to be showing you how to remove your center console. Now removing your center console is necessary to gain access to your shifter or even just your lower shifter boot.
Now it is a little involved, so follow along and we'll show you step by step what needs to be done. We're going to start by removing your center console armrest. Go ahead and pop off your oval plug and grab you a 5/16 or 8-millimeter socket, and you can remove the two bolts on each side that hold the armrest onto the console.
Repeat that process for the other side. I already have ours done. So you can just pick straight up on the armrest and it'll come free of the console.
You can set it out of the way, and we'll move up here to the shifter handle. Just pop up your shifter boot and bezel. You can just pick it up. And then remove the two bolts that hold onto your shifter handle.
Now every shifter's going to have a different piece of hardware holding it on, so you're going to use anywhere from a 10-millimeter to a 13-millimeter socket, or even an Allen-head socket for some aftermarket shifters. You just remove those two bolts to get that handle out of the way.
Then go ahead and remove your AC trim bezel. That just snaps out of place really easily. And grab you a set of radio removal tools. If you still have the stock radio, we have these available on our website. If you've got an aftermarket radio in your car, you have four screws holding in the adapter plate, so you can pull those four screws out to gain access to the back of the radio.
Engage those into place. Pull out and straight back on the radio. And unplug your antenna and then your two electrical connectors from the back. Set that out of the way.
Now we can move on over here to the driver's side. You're going after remove your lower column cover. It's held on by two Phillips' head screws. You've got one over here by the key release button. Get it out of the way. And then one over here, right underneath the lock cylinder. And then your lower column cover comes free. Make sure and keep your screws with it, because you don't want to be hunting around for screws later.
Now your plastic cover, trim cover, for the bottom of the dash, it's held on at the bottom with three screws, and it's got two push clips up here. This car is already missing one screw. It's 5/16 or 8-millimeter head. Go ahead and pull those out of the way.
And grab hold of the panel and pull straight back to disengage the clips. You can set it out of the way. Then you've got this metal trim piece. It's held on, again, with two bolts. It's got either 5/16 or 8-millimeter head. We want to pull those out of the way. Then that metal plate comes free.
Now you want to drop your glove box, open it up, and then push in on both sides, and then it'll completely fall down. Because you have two Phillips-head screws on this side and two Phillips-head screws on this side that you need to remove.
Now you can go ahead and remove the two Phillips-head screws at the front of the console top panel. Then the two Phillips-head screws at the back of the console top panel. Pull up on your E-brake handle and you can take your console top panel up and off.
Then disconnect your two electrical connections-- one for the cigarette lighter and then the other one for the power mirror switch, if your car's equipped. Then your console top panel is free. Now you have two more Phillips-head screws at the back of the console that need to come out.
And now your console is free. Lower your E-brake handle back down, pick up on the back of the console, and pull straight back. Lift up, and you've got an electrical connector over here for your trunk release. It simply pops out of place, and your console is free from the car.
Now to reinstall your console, you would just simply reverse these removal steps. For more interior restoration videos, check out latemodelrestoration.com.

If you own a '79 to '93 Fox Mustang, more than likely your carpet is showing signs of fading, staining, and might even smell like an old gym sock. Replacing your car can seem like quite a daunting task because you do have to remove a good portion your interior to even get your old carpet out. Then you have to go through and carefully mark, and then cut, holes in your brand new carpet.
Luckily it's not all that bad, although it is time consuming. We can show you all the steps that you'll need to do to get the job done. Now this is reproduction carpet. It will not fit exactly like the factory. But if you put in the effort this carpet will lay down, look, and smell a lot better than that stained stinky carpet you have right now.
First things you're going to want to do is watch our seat removal video and our console removal video to get those out of the way so you can get your old carpet out on the floor. Unbox your new carpet and unfold it. And work your way around forming it back into shape. The warmer the temperature is the easier your job will be.
Place your new carpet face down and lay your old carpet over the top. Position it as closely as possible to the new carpet and use a marker to trace all of the openings for the shifter, emergency brake, seats, and seat belts. These will be close, not exact. When you start cutting cut small. You can cut larger once the carpet is in the car.
With all of your holes rough cut, lay the carpet out in the floor pan of the car. Tuck it up under the dash and along the firewall. You may have to remove your dead pedal if you're cars equipped with one. Starting along the transmission tunnel, enlarge your cut outs as needed to fit properly.
Make sure and pull through all of your wiring harnesses. From underneath the car you could locate can cut out the rear seat track bolt holes. Install your lower shifter boot if you have a manual transmission. Finish working your way around locating and enlarging all the needed holes for your seats and seat belts. If you find yourself with any randomly wrinkles you can use the hairdryer to help smooth those out.
For just a few hours of your time, you can drastically improve the looks, and the smell, of your Fox Mustang. Pick up your new carpet and floor mats at latemodelrestoration.com.

Very happy that I got the Mass Back over the regular carpet. After installing both foil sound dampening and this Mass Back carpet I can barely hear my stock exhaust (I get made fun of because of my very mild exhaust). If I had the time to clean and spray my wheel wells with rubber spray on sound dampening I am pretty sure it would ride completely quiet. That is, besides the wind noise since it's a convertible.
Now for the fit of the carpet. This thing is HUGE compared to the stock carpet. After reading reviews I thought the carpet would be a tad small and wouldn't fit properly. I've had to do so much trimming to get it to fit like stock. It seemed to be a good 3-5 inches longer on all sides of the carpet compared to stock. I still have some air pockets because I didn't trim enough off.
