Default Auto Custom Carpets?

I stumbled on this ACC firm on RockAuto.com, and looked further into their site. I am generally dubious of aftermarket carpet because I've heard people say the quality and fit is much worse than OEM, and also it tends to be a lot thinner. However, ACC offers the option of "mass backing" for an extra $117, which seems to be added thickness along the lines of the extra backing that comes on OEM carpet.

so, anyone have experience with this company's product? the total cost with the extra backing is $400, which is quite reasonable compared to OEM, while seeming to be a "cut above" some of the options that are out there.

G2 Legend carpet is #16100-94. and holy crap, you can get purple, orange, yellow, pink, and lime green along with the standard colors!

Acc makes almost ALL of the aftermarket carpets out there. They are decent, please be aware you WILL have to cut holes, and do fitment work on em! The price you quoted is high though.
If you want to buy an acc carpet for the legend, check this link out..

These guys sell acc at pretty much dealer cost (we are a dealer for em, I know lol).

They want like $150, plus $60 for mass backing.

I personally highly recommend mass backing, it has great sound dampening properties, and even minor thermal protection..

Hope that helps,
Chad

I wouldn't mine fit poor but it had to be "fitted". I mean it has the general shape of our chapter but took quite a bit of work. mine doesn't have any fancy backing and you can see the hump from the ac vents as it doesn't have the backing like OEM nor does it have the cut out in the backing it doesn't have for the ac passages running towards the back of the car. overall thou for paying $100 for it. I'm pretty happy with it. Its no OEM but its not a nasty tan carpet either.

ACC is right down the road from me in Anniston Alabama. Good folks who've sent me all kinds of samples when I was trying to decide on a color for a Type F interior. As mentioned it isn't quite an exact fit. I know one member who got a rather custom color and he has let his sit on top of an OEM carpet to see if it'll conform more to the shape of ours. Also as mentioned they pretty much are the ones who do ALL aftermarket carpet. A quote for $400 is quite high for them. IIRC they wanted around $200 - $225 back when I was checking with them directly a few years back for their plush version.
