Re: Carpet fitting advice

Hi, I fitted the footwell felt or do you mean underlay? mine was a green colour and I placed it in position using the holes that should be cut out to match the carpet securing clips, the edges should go over the top of the underlay/felt and then be covered by the top cover carpets, the front footwel...
