Planning on painting my 47 next year. I'll spend the money and put in a nice carpet set from one of the repo folks then. (the seat upholstery is going to be brown and should be done in a few weeks.) In the mean time I'm wanting to put something on the floor to clean it up a bit. Looking for suggestions. A carpet remnant, truck bedliner, I dunno. I'm guessing there's some clever ideas out there. What have you guys seen or done on the cheap?

"Hey! I sound like Darth Vader!!
I went to a flooring install business. Asked what he had left over from previous jobs. $20 for enough to do the floor twice. Eventually, it will get carpeting but has held up for 6-7 years.

I bought some cheap rubber-backed carpet from Home Depot. It can be cut with scissors and doesn't require edge binding.

Looks good! I’ve been looking for something make a full floor mat with. In 10,000 miles of country use my original style factory matt is showing a lot of wear. Thinking Home Depot stuff will work.
