View Full Version : PS197 Carpet Replacement?

10-04-2010, 01:27 PM
Anyone changed the carpet in a 197?

It is all put in as 1 piece so I guess you would have to cut the carpet out and re-glue in the floor section. Any thoughts? I would like to do this during the winter.

I did this in my boat about 3 months ago. You need 2 things.

Willwood Conact cement - at least a gallon
carpet - I bought mine at Home Depot. Enough to do the boat cost me about $100

You cut it out in the general shape. Then you roll it up and do small managable sections at a time. unroll more carpet and do another section. While doing this, you cut it to the exact size you need.

P.S. - Check out my resto thread for more info

Reviving an old thread, the dealer told me that the entire top needs to come off the redo the carpet? Has anyone had a carpet replacement on a 197 done besides Ramsak? If so please explain how much of a PITA it was
