my intention was to make a better surface for adhesive. if they are too low down, luggage would come into contact with the carpet creating more friction thereby defeating their purpose.

hypothetically

I wonder if it would have been any help (might ruin it) to cut out the carpet fibres where the slides go and glue them directly to the carpet backing? That way the slides are a little more recessed into the carpet. Grant
or melt the carpet evenly (maybe hard) and glue over that.

Okay, that is a very outstanding job. Be proud of yourself. It looks very nice. :)
Zombie Threads everywhere! seriously and i cant find the threads i want either...

What an excellent job! The end result looks to be absolutley perfect! I intend (once I get my supra in better working conditions) to attack my interior and do just the same. My husband brought up this idea to me a while ago and being the slacker I am still haven't gotten around to his.
Luckily he recently purchased another sewing machine for me which I will be able to sew through carpet and upholstery very easily. Come spring I believe I will take a note from you and do just the same!

anyone have plans of doing this for the interior carpet? mine is in awful condition, not torn, but stained really bad. does anyone know what size carpet would be adequate? with all the forming that willl need to be done, i would guess a lot more than it looks.

Sorry for opening up this ancient thread :LOL: but I’m at the point that I’m looking for rear hatch carpets because my carpet had mouse pee all over it and was ripped apart because it was falling apart. I’m looking for oem carpets that have the towers like yours in the pictures but I can’t find any so I’m going to try and make them instead. Do you have the measurements for the carpet and the towers ?

Probably a lot cheaper and easier to just buy it:
