40in by 3ft m8

so 40in x 36in 2 yards would be 40x72in

PE carpet is fail now. It used to be the go to brand for me, but they ****ed it up. Now it has one side being plusher than the other which makes it harder to go around corners and frays more when it's cut. You really want the regular felt type carpet which it USED to be, but no longer is :mad:

Man, I don't know. I got some and i've been using PE carpet for years, and I start feeling it and was like :confused: and I struggled for like 45 minutes to tuck it into the corners because the **** just straight up was too thick. Maybe I got a bad batch, who knows. All I do know is that I did NOT like it and it was NOT the same stuff that I have usually gotten.

Was it the 54" unback cabinet carpet or that 40" (ish) automotive carpet. I have used the auto carpet before, and yes, its much thicker than the cabinet carpet...

Taken straight from the invoice:

It was definitely 54" wide. OP, buy some and tell us how it feels. I am hoping that somehow I got a bad batch of it because it was simply atrocious to work with.
