I took a bunch of pictures of Chucks carpet install, I plan to put it into a powerpoint with notes of what to do and what not to do's. It's not hard but very time consuming even for the pro it is an all day job.
One of the favorite lines told over and over by the MA crew was "Every C3 leaks, even the ones that don't leak...leak"
Chucks floor pans, once the old carpets were removed had an inch of water sitting in them, the installers said that was amazing because most have two inches! 
If you would like a copy of the power point let me know. (PM me) I'll most likley burn it to a CD as the file will most likely be to large to e-mail. I'll start this soon as the mind is still fresh.
One thing really cool is the molds do not care what color or what style carpet they mold, if you want C6 plush just tell them the color. Once I saw all the possibilitys I'm going to put something different in my project car.

Ebo, I am ready to install carpet in the next few weeks. My carpet is the performance choice from MAM. I am very interested in the procedure because the rear pieces arent even close to the size needed. Will have to cut the 2 pieces over the fender wells down quite a bit. Put my name down for a cd and let me know how much you need to cover it.
Thanks
Rodney

Rod, I knew you were about set so I was taking lots more just for you. Do not cut anything as they should be pretty close to the original size!

Hey Ebo! Do I have to call your work and tell them to give you some time to get the carpet CD done. Just kidding, I still have lots to do before I am ready to get to that. Just wanted to check in and see how you are doing. Let me know when you need a "little" bit of money to cover your cd costs. Notice I said a "little" amount because this car is breaking me!doh

Heh Rod, well I may get some time finally. I need to talk to Indy (Dennis) I took some shots in "Raw" on the digital camera and have not figured out how to convert them to be able to put in powerpoint. I'll hopefully start something this week.

Ebo Being ex Department of Navy staff civilian I have lots of experiance reducing PowerPoints.  I also own some software that normally reduces PowerPoint presentations by 80%-90% while still leaving them in PowerPoint format.   If you want email me your PowerPoint I will reduce it and send it back.  The first trick is put .jpg formated pictures in your PowerPoints.  You can use MicroSoft Paint to change the format of most picturs just by opening it in Paint and then SaveAs (select the format you want).  Unfortuneately I do not believe Paint will open a RAW picture.  I do not have any RAW pictures to try.  If you want I will find some free software that will convert the picture format for you.

Probably planning a better Ebostock2 for next year. Well just yell when you get it completed and need money to cover it!

Al, if you reduce the resolution a bit or compress the pix before adding them to the PP, that might help.
 
If you have Adobe licences, you could probably also turn your slides into PDFs and then merge all of those into one file.
 
A few ideas.  I'm interested in this once it's done too

Good morning people!

Yes there are still many signs of ebostock still around, mainly food! I do not think I'll have to actually run out of left overs till the weekend! The fridge was over stuffed every time you open the door sumptin fell out! I'm on vacation this week with the sole purpose to arrange and sort the garage to be able to work on red car. I should be done today with the sorting.

Now back on topic, I sent the photos to Norsky (not that he is going to put 100 shots of the install on everyones CD) but he did convert them over, thus part of the delay in the gathering CD.

I need to be able to put them in PowerPoint to add text and arrows and such, I will have it done as soon as I get picts back. I did order 6 of those long needle picks that they used for the install. They are Snap On brand and I ordered them direct. You need these for the install I'll look up the part number.

Oh and just so you know after the show we made a slight detour since it was on the way home and drove through Griffis Air Force Base........That is where "Woodstock II" was held. We watched it on TV and listened to it comming through our open windows!

I'm interested too  - I have a carpet install to do as well.  Are those "long needle picks" used to locate mounting holes and such? Part number / picture appreciated - thanks
 
by the way, I could use a sort of my garage as well, seeing you have all of this time on your hands!
 
LOL

I have all of the adobe products not good at them all but got a good price while overseas so I jumped on all of them.  If needed I can easily put them into a pdf or take a pdf and make it a word documented.

Off Topic.......
Almost done sorting, well some stuff will be later. My wifes step dad has alshimers and is in a home, he was a diesel mech and the smartest guy I've ever known. I ended up with most of his tools. I have sold all the bigger stuff and have totes of screw drivers, hand wrenchs and socket sets. The biggest thing is about 20 of those plastic drawer bins loaded with all kinds of stuff. I have to sort thru all that some day, in the mean time they take up a lot of room.  I so miss this man, he now plays with wooden baby toys, so hard to see him that way. Him and Sting Ray Jim have a major presense in my garage, last night I tripped over step dads bumper jack, he did that on purpose!
Lor laughed as she knew how much he would have enjoyed seeing me launched across the garage!  LOLOuchAngry

Hey guys, read these posts as I am also getting close to the carper install,  putting the instrument clusters and heat shielding down now.  Is it too late to get on the carpet install CD wish list.  Let me know how much and how you will distribute.  Any chance you will be at Carslisle?  Thanks!
