Viking, Once I pulled the carpet out I found that the floor panels and the floor had major gaps and were not at all square or straight. The carpet seems to hid a lot of these imperfections.
I considered fixing the floor around the panels, wrapping the panels with hydroturf, but the time/cost added to the fact it may just may not look right once it was all done just didn't add up to me.

Had I owned an OB or OBV I would have done it just because of the fact that there is only one panel to finish.

I'm still considering doing a lay-in or snap in to go over the top of the newcarpet just to lengthen the life if the carpet.
