I managed to find two pretty bad wrecks in the middle of nowhere near our city, and TJ and I checked them out. I got the passenger padding from both of them. the white one was pretty poor, the blue one was all right. I then painted the blue one (even though its not visible) to make it look a bit more respectable and similar to my silver cars natural padding colour. most of the cracks will be covered by the rear ventilation duct so it won't look too bad. it then has the rubber/carpet matt on the top of it before the mats on top of this. I dont think ill glue it down. the underside of this stuff is also contoured to your floor pan so this is why this NLA product is important, or your floor mats on top of it won't sit right either if you just glue any old flat padding down!
