      Hi everyone – I am replacing the carpet in my ’66 1a. The kit came with the " prong rings and clinch plate". Can someone please tell me how to get the prong ring to go thru the carpet and insul. pad. It appears way too short . I can barely get it thru the carpet . I was told to use a welders vice grip / but it does not look like anything short of a hydraulic press would work. Please – any suggestions from anyone who has done this – thanks -george

      What I ended up doing was removing a bit of the padding where the prongs went through to get the bottom piece on.

        Michael – It is the originol carpet : not really worn much but discolored and matted, glue coming up in places and really "old " looking – george
