    New Carpet

    So I pulled my whole interior today and let me just say... wow. My carpet was funky. And not in a good way. It was pretty well alive. I think it may have spoken to me.

    My point is, that bitch has gotta go. I'm trying to get a new carpet for my car (I want brand new, heel pad and all) and I was wondering if anyone has found a cheap way to do this within Canada? I don't mind the $150 american sites charge, I just don't wanna pay duty and monster shipping fees. Any suggestions? Also, is mass backing worthwhile? And how are 2 piece carpets?

    If it's just moldy, it can be cleaned up quite good.

    The only site I know of is www.1aauto.com

    try auto carper originals. search the net. I've seen their stuff in person at the big car show here and it's quality. your other option is to ship it to a member here in the US, have then reship it to you. just put on the forms used auto carpet. the duty shouldn't be much. what they don't know won't hurt em.
