Default where to find OEM floor mats and carpet?

where can I find the OEM floormats and carpet? I just need the front two mats and a whole new molded carpet. Junkyard the best bet? I also need the kickpanel trim pieces as well

Wrecker for the mats, JC Whitney for a carpet kit. Can you clarify which trim pieces you need? Those may be reasonable new from www.gmpartsdirect.com and we can give you the part numbers. Need your color, too.

the trim pieces are the ones that finish off the door trim closest to the dash, the one the hood release sticks through, I have the camel interior. If I could find those pieces and the floor mats that would be cool, If I can't get an exact colorand fit match for the carpet from JC whitney I can take my time and see if I get lucky with a junkyard. The reason I need new mats and trim pieces is because I started doing a custom kickpanel install for speakers and had to cut some of the stuff, but I decided to just keep the speakers in the doors the kickpanels take up too much foot room. I never should have cut the carpet :(

Thanks for the help

For the carpet, I would try Auto Custom Carpet in Anniston, AL. I bought one of their carpets from a local distriburor. The first one didn't fit very well. It wasn't molded the same as the OEM carpet. I called then and emailed this link to show the results. They asked me to ship the OEM carpet to them so they could make a new template for a better fit. The new carpet arrived and was a much better fit than the first try. Some companies use generic molds. We have a very specific shape to our carpets especially between the seats and the doors.

I'd say 90% to OEM standards. The first one was sub 60% in my opinion. It did look better once I got the rest of the interior reinstalled though. The color match is good as I brought in a piece and compared it to the manufacturer'* samples. Although this is considered a cut pile carpet, it has a higher knap (or nap?) than the OEM (a little fluffier). This has the appearance of a slightly darker shade of tan but still goes well with the rest of the car.

What ever brand you decide to go with, make sure it is the "mass back" style. This is a duplicate of OEM and makes the carpet wear much better and retain it'* shape.

Unfortunately, my parts car was removed a couple of weeks ago. I left alll of the tan interior trim pieces in the car to get rid of them. I could have sent them to you. I don't have the part numbers but others can give you thin information.
