    A few Qs regarding box carpeting

    Hey guys, im gonna carpet my box today since i got my car and i know what color to get now What is the best method of attachment, should i use some small nails, glue, or a combonation of both? How would you guys recommend i make the edges all look good, fold the carpet slightly under on each side or what? Thanks.

    The way we normally do it is stretch and glue. You can use 3m Super 77 spray adheasive that is something you should be able to get ahold of. start on the sub side laying it in the middle of your carpet. then stretch your carpet around the box. You won't have any seams. Then cut it on the back side and staple it there that way it can't be seen and it doesn't have to loo pretty. Other alternative is use a router and make groves where your seams will end and tuck them.

    spray adhesive, 3m 77 or 90, or contact cement if thats not available. don't nail or screw it, most everyone will agree that people like carpeted boxes seamless, with nails or carpet, you'd be able to easily find the seams, plus you'd have to put one every couple of inch or two along the seam to get it where the seam doesn't roll up.



    "Whattaya lookin' at? You're all a bunch of fvcking assholes. You know why? 'Cause you don't have the guts to be what you wanna be. You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fvcking fingers, and say "that's the bad guy." So, what dat make you? Good? You're not good; you just know how to hide. Howda lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth--even when I lie. So say goodnight to the bad guy. Come on; the last time you gonna see a bad guy like this, let me tell ya. Come on, make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through; you better get outta his way!"
