They tried hustling me by selling me the salt and pepper carpet for 19 dollars a yard. And i need 2 yards of it. Then he looks at me and asks i want them to carpet my ported box for 75.50 bucks. :eek: :eek: i know, horrible, just because im 17 he thinks i can't do it myself. so i explain to him i got all my materials and cans of spray already and stuff and he says "ohh" "we can now do it for 50 dollars for you" i was like "ffs i got my materials and i just need the **** carpet!" and then he asks me to calm down and still offers me to buy the carpet for 45 dollars for 2 yards... i was in shocked and just left...

cant believe he tried to hustle me...




From seeing many threads they say in walmart you can get the same material for cheap. Is that true? hows the quality? how much did you pay for it?

Thank you all for your cooperation.

Looks like good carpet at a good price. There are several different types of carpet, along with a multitude of different colors. Im going to buy some of the red carpet for my next box.

Anyone have any experience with partsexpress carpet?
