Trunk Carpeting, number of pieces & changes in 1963-64 Avanti Posted February 24 · Edited February 24 by R2W55 hit send too early · Report reply Actually I scrapped most of the glue off with a razor blade, same as I scrapped off all the paint off the outside of the car. All it need then was a light sanding except near the trunk lip where there was a lot of excess bondo. The carpet is 1 piece, not cut out for the tire well. So I am trying to decide if I keep it one piece and not glued down to access the spare, or cut out the circle and and sew on edging. I ordered the carpet from a site on ebay https://www.ebay.com/usr/benher58?_trksid=p2047675.l2559 They also had a full carpet set ($260) which I bought and and again was very high quality but was for a 63/64 and needed a little modification for the 78. Even included the door pieces and alternate pieces for AC or no AC.. I am also modifying the latch to accept both a trunk cable and an electric solenoid. I have most of the mechanics down (you have to separate the cable actuator from the solenoid) and the springs are giving me some concern.. If anyone is interested I'll post some pictures when I get it all figured out.
