Aaron, I have the three pieces that are for the rear compartments that Im not going to be using. They are light saddle but could be easily dyed black! maybe give your car extra character and leave them saddle!Rolling On The Floor Laughing Let me know if you need more pics.
We just got home so I could take them tomorrow night if you need.

[QUOTE=2nd2ja]Guess I'm going to have to buy new carpet for the fronts (my back is fine)!
Anyone interested in this set of brand new carpets? They have the jute padding on the backsides. I also have to go with it a full set of foil/jute insulation.
I know this stuff ain't cheap, but I've already laid down the Eastwood, so I probably don't need this either. [/QUOTE]
 
I have a '75 that rats were living in so there is no getting the smell out, I'll need to replace the carpet. So the big question is, if you choose to let them go, how much you'll need to get for them ?

By the way, the ones in my '75 have a large rectangle 6" x 12" missing in the same area. Looked like they were made that way.Confused

I bought new ACC carpet fronts.

Thanks for all your generosity for the patch panels. I just don't want to deal with doing that.

Anyways, I want $50 for the fronts. I just received my ACC carpets, so I could roll these up in the same box.

I also have extra insulation/thermal barrier pieces, too. 

BTW, I started working on my seats, too (posting a new thread).

Good deal!
I have a couple of spots in mine where I got mixed up on the old adage, and cut twice and measured once. I wound up just patching in from the leftover stuff, and you cannot tell where the spots are.
ACC is good stuff.

Hey Aaron, funds are kinda tight here but, if you can give me a total including insulation and s & h I'm very interested.
      Thanks,     Jimmy

I'll put the carpet in the box, then get some dimensions and weight.
