Does the front carpeting go under or over the firewall pad in a 65 Mustang? Also, it appears that I'll have to trim quite a bit from the front of the ACC carpeting?

Thanks.......Gary

The carpeting always goes over the firewall pad, and, yes, you'll have to trim it in several areas usually.

yes you will need to trim it

I found it best to trim it in the car.

One person with some heavy duty sissors cuts while another person spreads and keeps tension on the carpet.

Thanks guys....I already have it installed. I just wanted to make sure it went over the firewall pad before I started cutting It went in pretty easy and not a whole lot of cutting was required.....

Be sure not to use the plastic grommet for the dimmer switch. Ford never used them on the early Mustangs.
