  1. I am putting carpet in my 280z.  It never had any when I bought it.  The brake boot has snaps that apparently attach to the carpet.  My carpet doesn't have any and need to add some.  I would like to buy some snaps that will work with the brake boot snaps.  Preferably ones that rivet in.  Has anyone identified any?



  2. The plan is either for 1 piece that covers the entire floor and tunnel, or 3 total pieces: one for drivers floor, one for passenger floor, and one for transmission tunnel.  I'd prefer 1 piece so there are no seams, but I don't know if I can get it to conform, especially in the area where the tunnel, floor, and firewall meet.

  3. I am finishing up a full restomod on a 280z.  I modified the floor pans and tunnel in several areas and also removed the seat braces so I can't use a standard carpet kit.  I'm planning to get a roll of carpet and install myself.  The hatch piece I can use a pre-cut standard product from a vendor.


    Since the carpet won't be molded, it will be a little tricky.  I'll likely have to use heat and water to get it to conform.


    I much prefer the look of carpet on the transmission tunnel vs vinyl. 

    My current plan is to have 3 separate pieces: 2 for each floor, and one for the transmission tunnel.  


    Since the pieces will be separate, there will be 2 edges touching where each floor pan piece meets the transmission tunnel piece.  One piece will have to sit behind the other.   My current plan is serging/banding the edges of the transmission tunnel piece and have it sit over the top of the floor pan piece.  Everything will be glued down.  Although I'm not sure how that will affect the wire bundle I have running along the outside edge of the passenger floor pan.  


    Any advice or comments?  Has anyone else done this?  Has anyone successfully used a single piece of carpet to do this?  Has anyone paid a shop to do it?



  4. Nice job and nice car.  Very clean. I just did this install myself and was a bit surprised that the installation instructions were basically non-existent.  I ended up having to fabricate a brace for the motor to stiffen it up.  I had a lot of play without it.  


    I was wondering what you are running in place of your air vents?  Are those tweeters?  Any more information and pics?
