once again. i totally forgot about the carpet when i had mine installed. yea i know dumbsh*t right? well i had absolutely no problems (i thought of it when they were done with one side and thought "oh what the hell if they F it up i'll blame them . naw i just didn't want to have to come back so i crossed my fingers) when they did mine. does that mean YOU won't have any problems? i cannot be sure.

How can you determine if you need to remove the carpet or not? Does it depend on the welder's skills or what?

i would assume it depends on the shop and if they want to take any chances on catching the carpet on fire or not...

The maximum Motorsports units have new seat bolts and the units bolt onto the new "longer" seatbolts with nuts, then you weld the subframe to the front miniframes, and rear torque boxes, you are nowhere near any carpet when you weld them. Now removing stuck seat bolts, that's another issue, I had to heat the threaded bosses with a torch and remove the broken off seat bolt with a vice grip. And my car was only two years old!!!!
