    That's a drag. I was like a kid with a new comic book when I found mine last week. Just had to write down all the codes and then decipher them from the code lists on the back - even though I already knew what OY had and didn't have. I really hope you might find the rest of it somewhere - possibly under the carpet in the front if it got torn off while still in the factory. :confused:

    I've got some problems with the ACC carpet I bought for OY. I am working with Stock Interiors to resolve it, and will be shipping the new carpet back along with my original carpet on Monday. I'm hoping this will work out fine...so far, so good.

    OY is just sitting in my driveway broiling in the sun while I wait to hear back from Stock Interiors. Even though it has taken me YEARS to finally get to work on the interior, I am feeling very impatient to get back to work on it now. :( Tick tock tick tock...

    Stock Interiors has been very friendly and cooperative, and appear to be making good on the carpet problems, and will hopefully ship out a new carpet Monday. They said the one that I initially received appears to be for an automatic trans, instead of the four speed I specified. That explains the poor fit at the shifter when I put it in the car:

    Note the difference between the two...
    Original:

    Replacement:

    There was also a problem with the stitching of the heel pad... looks like somebody sneezed while sewing it.

    The two door carpet seems to be an exact fit for the four door floor pan except for an approximately 3 inch or so difference in length, the two door obviously being shorter wheelbase than the four door. You can see that the contours of the two door carpet at the rear are the same, just don't quite reach back far enough:

    But, now there is another problem that I noticed. The carpet for the four door has the "dog ears" that wrap around and under the sides of the curved four door seat bottom. The two door carpet is cut straight across the rear because the two door rear seat bottom doesn't curve at the ends. Humm. So the dilemma is whether I try to piece in the "dog ears" on each side, or do I buy a whole new four door carpet to use for the rear of the car. Ugh, getting expensive.

    Note the rear "dog ears" on the sides:

    Straight cut across the rear of the two door carpet:

    Well, I'll wait to get the correct four speed replacement carpet and make a decision after I can fit the front section in as it should fit.

    I had noticed the dog ears on your first picture and had wondering about that.

    Question, did you try to scoot the carpet back about three inches to see how that was going to work in the back-seat area?
    I have a feeling the replacement carpet will be about the same – and now is the time to be worried about that (if it is a problem, that is).

    Another question, are you going to use matching floor mats or go without?

    You may be able to get a piece of carpet flat stock and make the "dog ears" and get a carpet outfit to seam them like house carpeting(?) If they do it right, it'd probably be all but unnoticable. Just an idea.

    I did. And the "dog ears" will definitely be needed. Otherwise, it's a good fit.
    I actually hadn't thought about that amazingly. Now that you mention it, I will probably get some sort of aftermarket mats to protect the carpet when not showing it. It would be nice to get custom made carpet mats, but pricing is getting too high, particularly if I wind up getting another carpet for the rear area.

    That is a good idea too. I did buy two yards of extra carpet to use for making the 3 inch "spacer" carpet under the seats, and also to use to carpet the cargo area. It might be cutting it kind of close to see if I could also squeeze a pair of "dog ears" out of those two yards. Definitely worth considering. Could also buy another yard of carpet if needed. It would be cheaper than buying another whole carpet just to use for the rear seating area.

    I did get the replacement carpet back from Stock Interiors last week but no time to deal with it yet. The heel pad looks fine on this one, and the trans hump is definitely for a four speed. They had mistakenly sent me one for the automatic. They were really great to deal with!! Can't wait to get back to work on it. Hopefully this weekend!;)

    This may be of little interest...but to help preseve the interior on our Cordoba we bought a heavy canvas tarpaulin to cover the back and side windows. The tarp covers to the bottom of the glass on the side windows but only a foot down onto the windshield. The back of the car is always parked facing south. And the windows can be rolled down a bit while covered. It has helped keep the direct sun off of the interior stuff.

    Your carpet appears to be high quality. Very good looking.

    Thanks for the thought, and that is a very good idea! I really need to get my act together and get OY back in the garage. :confused:
