I just bought some carpet from Mustangs & more I too have the exact same problem. I thought maybe they sent the wrong carpet.Whoever heard of the seam being down the center?

like everything else, u must work at it. i cut mine down to fit and punched all the neccessary holes. looks good. its supposed to overlap in the middle. i kinda like it. make sure u have the right side overlaping though with the nice edge showing or else it will look like crap.

yes. thats on my 66 coupe though. but off the top of my head i really cant remember which side overlaps, the front or the back. u should be able to tell. one edge will have some work done to it with stitchings or whatever the hell u wanna call it. thats the edge that shows and is ontop, overlapping the other half. i think its the front overlapping the back. goodluck and take ur time. go reall slow and double check every cut.
