: If you are feeling bold, why not take it out and check/treat your floor for rust? It is not that big a deal - I have done it twice. Takes maybe 3 hours. Biggest pain is seatbelts and console.

: When I put my "new" carpet in a few months ago (out of my '74 parts car), I laid the whole thing in my yard, soaked it in some foaming carpet cleaner I bought at the supermarket, and hosed it off for like 20 minutes. Even though it was clean looking, a TON of dirt ran out.

: Anyway, it looks quite good inside the car now. If I get ambitious I'll die it darker (it's tan). You'll also have piece of mind about what you are riding on :)

: : While I've got one of the seats out of my car for recovering, I'd like to get some now-accessible stains out of my carpet. The stains pre-date my ownership of the car, so I have no idea whether they are coffee or grease or . . . . Any suggestions on what cleaning product to use? (I have checked the archives.)
