Looks real nice man realy nice
As for the 08 LSVs yea it sucks, I know Newty is pretty miticulous about cleaning his boat as am i. My carpet likes to get flat and i vacume it and it looks a lot better but still doesnt take to much time before it looks flat again.
Only parts i see comming out easy are the 2 alluminum floor panels covering the fuel tank. After that i think you have to remove a lot of bolts and at best slide the edges of the carpet under the riser where the seats are.
I think this will be a 3rd or 4th season job but as for now i try to keep it as clean as possible and vacume it a lot.
Newty, if me and you deside to do this, its your boats turn to be the test subject, mine was the test subject for cutting up the panel for the stereo remote hahaMalo <--- Means--Evil or Mean One. This explains a lot.

I wonder what it would cost to have someone completely remove and finish the floor and add snap-in carpet. This sounds like something I want to do come fall, lol...2013 Outback V

The other issue is that being as the carpet is one piece on the floor and then the upper deck is installed and bolted down you can't easily remove ALL the carpet. So you have to cut it somewhere. Cut around the floor perimeter and you'll see it under the rubber base strip. Cut behind the seat base and you'll have a gap you'll also see.2007 Mobius LSV

Yeah the floor is pretty ugly. The floor is actually fiberglass and isnt finished at all. It could be sanded and then gel coated to make it look nice but that would be quite a bit of work as well.06 Outback V

I'm going to actually use the wifes Bissell carpet shampoo thingy on mine. It's nice and compact and should get into almost everywhere, at least to the worst areas. I think what i'll do is using a brush, carpet cleaner and water first scrub the entire thing gently and suck up the mess with the shop vac, then use the Bissell. We'll see how it goes.2007 Mobius LSV

Go over it with hot water several times when you get done. Try to get all the soap out of the carpet. Reason: The soap left in there will actually grab onto dirt and make the carpet look bad again sooner. Take it from a guy with 6 kids in the house.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!
