A word of caution about using Stock Interiors/Auto Custom Carpets

Hi Folks, Just a word of warning here. Take it or leave it... I purchased almost $1,000 worth of carpets, custom mats, and bulk carpet from Stock Interiors over the past year for my 1963 Cadillac. The molded carpets from Auto Custom Carpets aren't the best fit to put it mildly.

They wouldn't sell it to me, so now I have a 95% finished interior! I contacted Auto Custom Carpets…See More
