New Carpet Install
Let me preface this by stating this this is not a job for the faint of heart!
For reference this is an 08' LSV.
Fairly easy if you are patient and take your time.
Fist thing I did was remove the carpet from the floor panels and trim them with a grinder to help make the panels sit more flush with the floor and allow the ballast hose to flow freely.
I then used a very sharp razor to cut the carpet around the seat bases, then removed the carpet.
Next unscrewed I all the cast aluminum brackets that hold the seat bases to the floor. Then I pre measured and cut 2x4's. I raised the seat bases and dash up about 1/2" with a small floor jack. I held the bases up with the 2x4's
Note: make sure you take the screws out of the engine/locker dividers as they are attatched to both.
I made sure to scrape all the glue and carpet left-overs off with a putty knife.
