My carpet is in the basement. The car is in Binghamton. been without it or the insulation since the last NEBF I attended. Te headliner and pillar trim has been out since early summer. Still drove it daily there for a while. Carpet is overrated.

that'* why it was still a little damp. It was a winter day, I hung it for 3 hrs to drip dry, then took a wet/dry vac to the bottom edge.

I've driven my car 3600+ miles w/o carpet. the center colsol just sort of chill in the center.

IMO, bolt the shifter back in and the driver seat. let the rest chill in the house.
