Yea they stopped making them like alot of other stuff. Mine has a big crack in it that you cant really see in the pics and the under side of the front has some nasty road rash from a speed bump I used to have to cross all the time when I was stationed on the base here. I'll mold it and make a new one eventually, but at this point thats looking like a long time away.
Yeah its around 250-300 bucks for the mass backed super plush nice stuff.
However, I have work on the 99 ford van, and the 16 civic, and the RV, and the house all going on right now. The van's falling apart. The 16 civic is totally paid off as of this month and mine so upgrade time as well as fixing what 150K miles has broke. The RV needs a new roof put on it. And the wife decided Im paying as much as possible on the house so that way Im not still paying a mortgage when Im older then dirt in a few years lol. Her wording not mine.
On top of that Im finally investing in a tig welder in april.
So yeah it sucks and yeah the carpet is trashed after 20 something years of being in leaky cars, but I gotta go with it right now. Besides, it only takes a day and a half to pull the carpet even with taking long breaks, sleeping in, and stopping early.
I promise when it comes time to sound proof and insulate the car, the carpet will get replaced.
We all understand conflicting priorities.
I've seen much worse carpeting than that. If you clean it up good it will probably be fine.
I had a Focus for a while with a heavy smoke stench that I brought all the carpeting and headliner to the car wash and blasted it out really good then let it dry in the sun for a few days and that really rejuvenated it for under $10.
Started mocking up where the pump and filter can go. The stock fuel filter will be leaving but here's where it's looking like theyre gonna live.
Fuel pump however I have to flip it so the inlet and outlet are on the opposite sides.
And fuel filter although I'm thinking some sort of sheild is in order. I'll actually bottom out on the floor pan first as its lower then the fuel filter so it should be good there.
And the self tappers are temporary. I have nutserts to put in but I need to get everything set in place and plumbed first
