The vans been sitting for quite a few months, so over this weekend I decided to get back to it, I posted some pics etc on the `down under` page, don`t think anyone reads that, ha.
Anyway, as I said I got to work and stripped out the old front carpet, in fact the carpet from the back doors to the firewall is all one piece, but its only the front section thats become crappy over the years, I ordered a new front section from Auto Custom Carpets Inc over a year ago, so I cut along behind where the front seats are - removed the seat swivel mounts and removed the front carpet section and all that crappy underlay. found a small section of rust which I`ll repair. Once thats done I`ll be able to fit new underlay and fit the new carpet. As you can see from the pic, the seat mounts were on top of the carpet, this time I will mount them direct to the floor with a rubber? pad - then fit the underlay and new carpet cut round them making it easier to remove the whole section for cleaning or whatever. the other pic shows the new piece test fitted. I`ll recommence work on the new door trims this week.

That's going to look good, and easier to keep clean.

That's some mighty fine looking carpet... the new stuff, not the old. lol the old looked like it was begging to be replaced. Welcome back. Thanks for keeping us posted, can't wait to see how it comes out.

I had no idea Auto Custom Carpets (or anyone for that matter) sold full carpets for our G vans. That's awesome info.

Hey Matman, good to see you again.
The new carpet isn't quite as "colorful", but it looks a lot better.
