I'm interested in these trim pieces but I wonder how they are attached? I can't say I would want to drill into my repraired/replaced rrockers to attach them. Maybe that body panel adhesive stuff??

The carpet trim from exline (Kenny) comes unpolished . It also has no attaching holes and will have to be drilled like the factory ones . I don't think I would worry about the small holes necessary to attach as the holes are in the overlapped metal area of the step. guess you could try a double tape. :thinking .BTW, the unpolished ,which I purchased need some sanding( in the bends) and polishing if you want them to be flawless and shinny. Kenny pointed this out before I purchased. Extra $35 for him to polish.

Kenny also mentioned to me that he also welds and grinds a little more on the polished version to clean up the bends so he does put more work in for that price. :Thumbsup

I hope to grab a set myself.

I'm waiting on a reply from Kenny on a polished set. He did indicate that their was more labor involved in the polished sets.

I like the way Kenny made the trim curve all the way to the front door post. It is probably worth the extra $$ to have him grind and polish them. I've been working on mine since I've had the time waiting on my truck painting to be finished :pale and taking it a bit easy while the knee mends. :Thumbsup

the only part of them that I dont really like is where you can see the "ripples" in the bend there. Can someone snap a close up of that so I can see how bad it "really" is

From what I understand, the ripples are what is removed during the "polish" option

I'll post up some pictures once I finish grinding ,sanding and polishing. Really not that bad.

I just got a 1971 w100 and I'm looking for blue carpet. Where can I get some just like in the above picture and about how much will it cost?

I just ordered carpet for my 69 from https://stockinteriors.com

They were having a sale. Mine comes in tomorrow. I put in new floors over turkey day and laid boom mat down last weekend. Carpet will be this weekend.

Interested in which 'version' you ordered and how it turns out.
