For our 68Camaro which also has extensive floor modifications:

1. We used three bulk packs of Dynamat Extreme
2. Then we installed 1/4" dynaliner everywhere
3. Then we used dense foam filler sparingly
4. Then, and this is important, we used high end custom carpet that comes "delaminated". The carpet literally is installed by laying down backing, then top surface of carpet is spray glued and molded into necessary odd shapes.

I learned about this carpet from my interior guy who "cut his teeth" on custom airplane and custom boat floorboards.., and I could not be more pleased.
On the down side, when you use this material, you have to vacuum fine threads of leftovers from the top layer.

And now for a little brag..,
Carpeting is good enough for:
1. Nine Good-Guys awards out of ten attempts
2. Two FIRST place awards at Detroit Autorama, 2019
3. Cover of Sherwin Williams 2019 calendar plus December month
4. Two feature articles (Chevy High Perf 2018, Full Throttle Mag Sept 2019)

Enough brag.

My point here is carpeting is tricky.
And I got mine from SEANAE interiors located in central Missouri.

Please let me know if I can help!

So you buy the carpet in bulk? Is it a cut/pile type or are there options? I'd love to know more about this! Thanks

I just called my interior guy and learned the following:

1. The "delaminated" carpet comes in bulk
2. It is only offered in cut pile because closed loop would simply fall apart
3. It is available from AutoCustomCarpets. ACCMATS.COM
4. The trick is you have to CALL them because accmats do not offer this carpet online.
5. My interior guy indicated if you attempt to use this product, he would be happy to chat with you and offer any guidance over the phone.
You can reach him at SEANAE Interiors or simply send me a pm where I have his permission to provide his contact info.

Hope this helps!
