92 PS190 Carpet Progress

Ok, had to prove to Mikeg205 & SammyD that this project is happening

Just getting started but showing my progress so far.
Tank out and clean[IMG][/IMG]

Before shot: just getting started. Carpet looks much worse after it was pulled out!

Center floor sections and pylon out!

Port Side Gone. Carpet mostly coming up without too many issues. Will make great templates.




Shot of the boat and new Corinthian carpet that will go in. Went with 24oz Charcoal

Beautiful boat! That looks like a TON of carpet? Are you planning to do another 7 boats after yours is done?

Thats alot of carpet. I actually replaced the carpet in my 205 last night. It ended up being a far easier job than i anticipated and it turned out better than i thought it would. I didnt do in the rear locker or under the bow/observers seat, just the parts that are visible when your in the boat. I ordered a 8.5x16 roll from Corinthian and i have lots left over.

Not sure if this is your first time doing boat carpet but it was mine. So a little advice, i found the glue to be MESSY. No matter how hard i tried i couldnt keep it off my hands and it doesnt come off very easy. I kept lots of rags handy to try and keep my hands clean. If i was going to do it again, i would buy a box of latex gloves and put on a new pair when i got glue on them.

Thanks for the advise. I'm sure I will have lots left over but really not that concerned. It is my first time doing carpet, I was more concerned with the idea of jacking a big piece up and having to reorder. Ill do something with the extra.

OP ken-didn't mean to hijack your thread.
I don't think you could do it with much less than that. Mine took 25' of the roll for a Tristar and I believe the 190's have a longer interior. I think you'll be pleased with the corinthian carpet when you're done. The thickness/stiffness of the carpet makes it a little bit of a challenge to get it to mold the way you want. Get in the sun, it makes it easier.

Hey, no worries! Yours looks great and gives me some encouragement. Thanks for confirming carpet amount. I layed the old carpet out last night looking for best material usage. Ive not actually made any cuts yet. I hope to be installing Saturday.

How much sanding did you do on yours before you started the install?

Absolutely no sanding. The carpet in mine appeared to have been laid with a thin coat of spray applied adhesive. I scraped the floor and sides good with a putty knife, then sprayed some goof off type glue remover and scraped some more in order to get all the carpet fibers up. Another light spray and scrubbed it with a rag which got a lot of it off. I did not feel the need to get down to bare fiberglass as it was just going to get another coat of glue. Once you see the adhesive and trowel it on, you'll see what I mean. I just made sure it was smooth, no loose glue, and then vacuumed it thoroughly.. You can see a bit of the reddish glue material left on the sidewall and along the edge of the floor.

One more tip, make sure you get all of the carpet pieces for each side and the center panels turned the same direction off the roll. The 'lay' of the carpet will affect how it looks when down.

I've been wanting to do this to my '93 190.

Maybe it's me but I think engine building would be easier and have been dreading the beat down of this project. I fear that the carpet will tear into 500 pieces and I won't be able to use it as a template. I also don't know how to get it under the observers seat. I have no clue tow to do under the bow.

The whole thing looks like a complete beat down. Getting to where you are is not a problem for me. I just have no clue how to install it.

But I sure HATE paying someone.
