DIY Snap-In-Carpet

Hey Guys,

i searched a snap in carpet for my 2006 X2 for a while now.
Getting it in Germany is nearly unpossible and even in the US i found nothing that could safely work for me.

So i decided to try it selfmade...

First i took a template with foil and cut it out, than i transferred it in the backside of the Carpet. Than i cut the Carpet exactly.

After the carpet was cutted, i checked the matching accuracy last time bevore i gave it to my upholsterer to stitch up the edge.

What do you think about that little DIY projekt?

Costs were arround 200$ including the press-studs wich come next week.

That was a great project. It really turned out nice.

The cost was an added bonus. It's good to see no shoes on the new carpet too.

What is this "foil" you used for a template ? is it just plastic sheeting and thats a translation typo? I assume you have to cut the carpet/template slightly on the small size to accommodate for the binding edge that the upholsterer will add... btw, looks like you did a great job with the project.

Hey Jay,

yes.. its ja translation mistake, sorry! You are absolutely right, the template is made out of plastic sheeting.

An all transparent type of that sheeting would work even better than my green one on the pictures.

I donīt know your deck, but i cutted the template like the "structured" Gelcoat on the floor was. Than you got enough place left.

The binding edge just comes bigger in about 2-3mm per edge.

Looks awesome!
Will you be attaching the snap in buttons yourself? Always wondered how you get those all lined up
