What's up,

I am in on the interior group buy, and I'm going to be redoing my interior. What I need that is missing though is the interior carpet. Finding it in the junkyards is pretty hard, and Acura charges around $1000+ for a brand new one.

Has anyone bought any of the aftermarket interior carpet kits out there, like on the kinds on internet or something? Or does anyone know if they are of good quality or not? Thanks in advance.

Yeah, me too, I am having a hard time finding carpeting for my 91 Legend coupe, all the aftermarket companies that sell carpeting, only have them for 87-90, does anyone know where we can get the carpeting (i need black) for the 2ng gen coupes and sedans???
Thanks, Shawn:D

The only source I have used is Auto Custom Carpets, but that was for a Corvette application. The problem is that the Acura carpet is a moulded carpet. Unless you can find a moulded carpet source which is not OEM, it would be best to buy an OEM carpet at discount from Acura of Augusta. A non-moulded carpet will be extremely difficult to fit correctly.

CARPET PROBLEMS...

I have a next door neighbor with a 93. His interior was perfect except for his carpet. What he did was took his old carpert out and took it to a local upholstry place and the covered it with another piece of carpet and siliconed the areas where the molded foam was.........do not know it this helped but it looks great........

Thats a great idea.. recarpetting the old interior carpet.
Will it be too thick to reinstall though? Also, would it look like stock? Thanks.

If anyone wants the Auto Custom Carpet for 91-95 Legends in black I have it for sale. It's just sitting in my garage doing nothing. I have a blue one for my car.

Custom Carpets already molded for you Acura...

Guys,
I noticed some of you were looking to replace carpet in your Acuras. A friend of mine told me about this company that sell carpets that are molded for your type of car. I must say, I'm extremely happy with the results.
Check them out.....

Hi there, i bought an aftermarket carpet for my coupe and it fit horribly, i couldn't even use it, i gave up w/it. So i just took the factory carpet and died it black, it looks brand new now and fits, well lets just say factory, hehe. Hope this helps. Nate
