I am starting to put the rubber flooring in the wagon.

All the wiring is detritus from a car phone from the days of before cell phones..









on the Corvette front.....

I have been waiting close to 40 years to run a license plate frame like this.
Growing up in Pontiac MI it would be common to see the "my other car is a (Porsche, Corvette, Cadillac ETC) on some piece of **** car, knowing full well it was their only car.

Was the gray rolls sound deadner? Nice color match for the vinyl.

Yes, the rolls are poor mans boom matt. I needed to get the flooring out of the bedroom... I am pleased with the color as well.

I finally got some time to work on the wagon, honestly not missing it much since I got the vette. Sunday I put down the boom matt and tonight I trimmed up the vinyl for an initial fit.

I think I am going to use a heating pad or two and some sand bags to mold it into shape.

THANKS!

I am getting there. I know it will look better in the long run with all the dirt I track into a car.

I finally got back to the wagon today, I got the trim back down and the drivers seat back in. I will finish it tomorrow and post pics

overall I am very unhappy with how the flooring lays. I don't think they did a good job forming it, and the way they store it didn't help either.
