We actually already have the paper and cardboard patterns, but just haven't decided what kind of carpet to use. We want a cover becuse our little Shi-Tzus ride on the dash going down the road and we are afraid they will damage it. What kind of backing is on the carpet, and did you attach it in any way other than the vents. You did a beautiful job, much better than some we had ordered and when they arrived, did not fit. Sure hope we can get this done before our up-coming trip.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Lynda

Good job, now, make one for this dash.

Hope Jose still has a pattern.

Yeah, they do. I tried squinting, and they do look kinda like candles. I do have some, but took them out for the summer melt down temps.

Lynda,
I have attached two photos of the few pieces of carpet that I have left over.
One photo is a view of the top and bottom of the carpet. The other is a "side" view so you can see how thin the carpet is.
I believe that a thin carpet is necessary because it is easy to work with and fits under all of the trim and vent covers easily.

The bottom of the carpet seems to be a glue like matrix material that hold all of the fibers of the top.

The original photos don't show it, but we also brought the carpet down over the front (or back if you want to be correct) and held it in place with the front vent covers (for heat & AC). The border along the front is the original bound edge of the carpet. This gives it a real professional look.

In addition, we lifted the consol control box and tucked the carpet under the sides and then allowed it to close and this also holds the carpet in place.

If you want me to send you a piece of the carpet, just send me an email with your address and I'll get it in the mail.

Let us know how you make out.
If I can be of further help, please let me know.
Regards.
Paul
