Looks awesome Mario, and it will surely make the car quieter, and cooler too! So a multiple win!I started laying down the carpet. Yes it’s the same junk I put in the coupe but it’s money already spent. I can live with it. Tough time trying make a pattern to a 3 dimensional surface area. I used chip board in sections to get close enough for government specs. Put up a pop-up tent outside to give me shade and I worked my butt off yesterday in the heat. Today too but it wasn’t as hot as yesterday. Thank god.
I set up my saw horses and away I measured and cut close to the pattern. When I cleaned up and packed it in my knee said hold your horses partner. So I got a good portion of carpet down and I made the center divider that holds the new radio. I also made the shelf with speakers cut out but I haven’t made a support for the shelf or the divider yet. Needs some patches on the sides yet and also at the kick panels. Still got some ways to go but I’m moving better and better as I loose weight. I’m down 29 lbs as of yesterday. I have at least 30 more to go. UUUUUHG. BUT IT HAS TO BE DONE.

I can't wear the knee pads, so I have a couple mechanic's pads I haul around as I work on my knees. Both of mine are shot, and I know it's just a matter of time until I end up replacing both. Trying to put that off as long as possible!Great job! and congratulations on the weight loss. I know how hard it can be. Wear your knee pads, I used to think they were usless. Not anymore.
I saved a cushion off an old sofa and use that! works like a charmI can't wear the knee pads, so I have a couple mechanic's pads I haul around as I work on my knees.
