Nice carpet replacement. Can you provide the carpet manuf., style/color, & weight please. I changed mine old blue to gray, but others may find it helpful. Took me a while to decide which carpet I really wanted to use. Was your passenger seat base separate on that year or did you cut it loose from the topcap?

Thanks. I bought the carpet from Boat Carpet Central. It's their 20oz Cut Pile in Navy. Bought two rolls of 6' X 20' for $330 delivered (free shipping). Nice people to deal with and liked the quality of the samples. (Enough left over to do my bunks and v-block).

My observers seat bolts to the dash near the driver and screws to the passenger corner of the dash and behind the side cushion to the deck.

Thanks again, looks like you still have your original upholstery too. I used the same glue, mineral spirits and trowel you posted when doing your carpet. I think the worst part was gluing the new carpet up in the bow (it's a bit tight up there).

Reading other's postings about getting the center panels to slip in prompted me to use a 4" wide plastic putty knife. Worked very well without damaging the carpet.
