Thanks

Depends on what you want? personally I'd either go with D.Waldens/ECS ship flat ACC carpet if I looking for an OEM 80/20 loop...otherwise I go with a Mass Backed ACC carpet in high cut pile directly from ACC carpet.... "Best E body carpet source and good price" don't exist, so price is not a consideration IMHO

Thanks, mine is a driver so I'm not looking for something that is 100% correct with a price that reflects it. I want a decent replacement that fits well at a good price.

Rockauto sells ACC carpet.

Is the MASS backing worth the ~$50 up-charge? Seems like it should help with noise.

I'd be Leary of it being 2nds or line rejects due to the discounted price, personally I prefer to buy directly from ACC, most of the carpets I buy from them are "custom" application/material that way chances are I get a freshly made carpet set, rather than something sitting in a box for untold years?

YES! the MASS backing not only helps with the noise, but it lends greatly to the carpet maintaining it shape from the time when it was pressed/molded, no wrinkles or folds to deal with, well worth the cost, you'll kick yourself in the a$$ for not ordering it!

I bought a mass backed ACC carpet for one of my '70 Challengers a few years ago through Rock Auto, and it was dropped shipped directly from ACC. Ordered over the weekend, made at the beginning of the week, and delivered to my doorstep by the end of the week. I immediately unpacked it, and laid it out in my house to get it flat before any bulges or rolls could set in from being rolled up in its shipping box for more than a few days.
I later ordered a set of ACC floor mats from Rock Auto to go with my beautiful new carpet, and it too was dropped shipped and the date code on the box was a couple days after order.
With a 5% discount code from Rock Auto's already low price, I felt I got a real bargain! up
