I searched over 300 carpet related post, and came up empty handed. I want to order the carpet for my 66 coupe tomorrow, and need to find out what's out there, and things to look for in a carpet that would make it superior to it's competition.

I know there's ACC Carpets, but don't know much about them, I have heard both good and bad about the quality.

Is there any others?

How about sound deadner? Should I be asking about a given weight density of the carpets and/or sound Deadners?

Thanks,
Doug

I bought ACC carpet for my Mustang. The quality was good but I was suprised by how thin the actual carpet is. From what I have researched, ACC seems to make one of the better repro Mustang carpets. One more thing, I have a dark red interior and the carpet they sent me was a much brighter red than my interior. I ended up sending back the carpet and opted for another ACC color which was a darker red and a special order. Carpet color matches up perfectly now but it ran me $10 extra.

Most of the sound deadner I have seen is nothing more than a roofing material. Snake-Oyl makes a much better carpet underlayment but it's more expensive. When I am ready to buy mine, I may go with the Snake-Oyl brand (just depends on how over budget I am on the interior).

Got my ACC a month ago, I would say its better quality than others Ive seen, but still sucks if you ask me. I paid extra for the Mach 1 stuff too. Underlayment is another sore spot, doesnt fit like the original....

I agree on the ACC being very thin. You can basically see thru. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif
I mean the original one (?) was way thicker. Other than that I cant say much about them, as Ive only dealt with ACC and the old one that I replaced... .
I was a bit disappointed.

Someone posted pix here a while back of a custom job, something in a very busy paisley. I swear, it was the weirdest thing I've ever seen done to a Mustang. Paisley carpet. Sheesh.

The ACC brand is probably the best way to go. I've seen a quality deterioration over the years, however. I replaced a set I bought about 10 years ago, and the difference was quite significant. They're all bad - some are just worse than others.
