For the seatbelts, you just need to hold them in exactly the same orientation that they would be in while mounted in the in the vehicle.

You don't know how many times I have tried that. I know about the pendulum, but I think my dad got it too far in the mechanism. He took off that little circle that keeps the metal catch from going up too far. I am working on it, and if I get it, I will put it back in the Jeep immediately, but I already think I will have to run over to the stealership. I will challenge someone there to get it working.

So who wants to see the surprise?

Ok.... I guess it is time to reveal my little surprise.

I started to clean up the carpet. I mean, we vacumed it, and it looks beautiful. My mom was pissed this whole weekend. She kept doubting that we would ever be able to put everything back together correctly. If she saw us not put the carpet in, well... Let's just say the Jeep wouldn't move for a while.

So I took the console back out, and put the carpet in. It is actually surprising how good it looks. I will also note that it keeps the smell down a bit. I should be able to report later tomorrow how the road noise is. We are taking my aunt to La Guardia tomorrow night. I would assume with the carpet and liner it would be a little quieter.

Time for pics.


All is back in place (not the rear seats, but the brackets are)


Showing the carpet on the fender.


The 5pm night sky when we finished.


Well... there you go, the surprise. You can see in the pictures how clean it is now.

How's that a surprise? lol

Can i ask what the point of bed lining it was when you just put the carpet back in?


It needs to be exposed to cure right.

if mine was coated, I'd probably put the carpet back in for winter. it does help insulate the Jeep at -20*F in ski country but for summer...heck no, carpet sucks.

Well... I am assuming you don't have a mom like mine. It will make it back out eventually, I am just not sure how quickly. The point of bed lining it was to protect it. I had a little bit of surface rust forming on the driver's front floorboard, and the paint was scuffed under a lot of the carpet.

At minimum I will use was salty carpets as a reason to take it out, then I will conviniently not put it back in. Or I will show my mom that i can sell it for like $60 and that I have no need for it. Actually, I took told me dad I am thinking of starting a thread with a poll asking JF their take on the situation. I may just end up taking the carpet out tomorrow after our trip. I really am not sure what I will do yet. I am almost possitive I will wait till after out trip to the airport so that the fumes aren't as strong, not that they are all that bad now.

You want to know what she wanted me to do last night?

She wanted me to start putting the interior back together. My dad and I put the second coat on starting at about 4pm, there is no way I would be able to do that.

I would be interested to know what the improvement in noise insulation. FWIW, I also plan to put my carpet back in too. I see this as protection against Canadian winter roads (read: salt).

What about herculiner? I know that one is thicker than a mo-fo but when i would go wheeling and step back inside with dirt or mud, it would stain the coat since i removed the carpet and never placed it back in after hacking it off with a razor blade.

Nice to know SOMEBODY understands me. Well... keeping the carpet in should have an added benefit with insulation.

When I posted pics of the carpet, I knew it would be a slightly controversial decision. Oh well. I am excited to look for any differences in noise.


BTW, in about 1 month when I KNOW it is fully cured, I will do some strength tests. I will beat it with chains, maybe drag the rear seat... any other ideas are welcome.

So then are you going to drive up to NY to test it out Zach, I don't have a generator. I could put our 5 gallon air compressor in, but it isn't all THAT heavy. I don't think the '64 wheelhorse will fit, otherwise that would be PERFECT. I is all cast iron, so it weighs like 500lbs. It even has chains on the back tires. Eh... I won't even bother trying.


Any More ideas people?

So you put the carpet back in? You realize normally, rust starts forming from the underside of your body. I would be more worried about that then anything else, but whatever your money not mine.
