Tips For Changing Your Carpet Kit in Your 1955-1959 Chevrolet Truck
- When you remove the old carpet and underlayment, you will likely uncover wires stuck to the bottom of it. You will want to carefully remove them from the backside.
- Going the extra mile to scrape up the old glue from the floor with a putty knife or wire brush will ensure a good clean base for you to lay the new carpet kit down on. Having all of the old glue and underlayment removed will allow your new carpet to have a better seal.
- After you have removed the old carpet, this is a great time to look for holes, rust spots, or other repairs that need to be made that you might not have noticed otherwise.
- When you receive your new 1955-1959 Automatic Chevy Carpet Kit, you will want to unroll it in the sun or another warm area to allow it to settle into its molded shape. Don’t worry about wrinkles or places that look too flat. This will change as you install it.
- It might make it easier to get your carpet kit installed perfectly to remove things like the seats, pedals, etc. A little extra work will go a long way in making your installation look like it came from the factory.
- Laying your carpet kit out inside the cabin floor of the truck before you glue it down might serve you well. Understanding how and which way the carpet should go beforehand could save you from making a big mistake.
