Installation Guides & Downloads
Removal of original riveted mats :Drill the heads off of the rivets holding down the original mats while pushing the remaining rivet into the hull. Fill the holes left by the rivet with 5min. epoxy, this can be purchased locally at any auto parts store. Make sure to scrape the epoxy flat in the foot wells so the new mats will lay flush. Clean the area that the new mats will be attached to with acetone solvent for proper adhesion.|
Removal of original glue down mats:By hand, peel off any old mat material that you are able to and then you use a putty knife to help remove all material from the difficult areas. Areas that are difficult may require spraying WD-40 brand lubricant in between the mat and hull to help loosen the old adhesive. Take your time on the prep work; this is important to achieve professional results.
Now that your surface is clean and ready for the new mats it is time to lay out how your mats will look in the foot wells. This is the location the mats will be attached. Trace around the mats using a pencil. This is your reference area to place the mats after the paper is peeled off the back of the mat.
Peel off the paper backing from the mat and line up one end of the mat to your traced out area. (Do Not Try to Install the complete mat in one shot) Slowly work the mat down into your outline.
After the entire mat is installed you must apply even pressure down on top of the mat to insure complete contact to the hull.
Let mats sit for 12 hrs after the install so the glue will fully cure.
