<VV> Interior Installation Tips

I just installed Clark's carpet in my car and am very satisfied. Clarks 
includes a tip sheet with the product, which basically says to remove just 
about the whole interior, especially the shifter, if you have a standard.

Smitty's tip to use a soldering gun to make the bolt holes in the new carpet 
worked great for me. The gun make the opening, and seals the edges via the 
melting action. I used a cheap five dollar pencil soldering gun from Wal 
Mart and it worked great. It had a sharp point on the end and made a 
perfectly sized round hole. It did take a while to warm up, but once it did, 
I didn't have to wait anymore between holes.

Good luck!
