So the rear piece of the trunk carpet in my car has been abused by the time I got the car. It needed some TLC bad. On the way back from the East Coast NSX meet I went through some heavy rainstorms and learned my trunk leaks really bad. Going to need to figure that one out pretty quickly. So I pulled all the carpet out so that it could dry out and I could wipe everything down. While it was out I decided to fix the issue with the back carpet as it did not get wet. When I pulled it out the only thing that was still attached was the right corner plastic mount. The center and left were no longer even attached to the carpet.

So using some vice grips to hold things in place and then a staple gun plus screwdriver I was able to put the piece back together. Had to unfortunately bend each staple prong in place since there was no backing plate. Need to get staple pliers if it ever comes apart again.

Before. This isn't the most recent picture. I had forgotten to take a picture of it before I started but even the middle had come apart as well.


Staples bent in place






Completed. When I put the rubber seal back in place I noticed I probably should have put the carpet up higher than I did on the plastic mounting. I thought it was supposed to be flush but the carpet should have probably been about 1/8in above the clip strip. Still looks 100x better though.

I won't let it happen again, especially now that you have this in your garage.

I enjoy reading updates on your car and everyone else cars too. This place is just more fun with more of us around. Understand life gets busy though.

LOL...I had 6 for a short time.
I have 5 again now.
I had 4 when I sold off the Audi A3 and I felt like a dirty peasant.
Never again.

I don't know what in the world you would do with yourself if you ended up selling those other two and ended up with just 3

I am glad you enjoyed that. I've heard Tool my entire life, but never really appreciated them until recently.

I have no idea.... I just searched for "funny Tool Vicarious", and this came up, and the guy's reaction was definitely funny!
