Floor Mats

Have any owners found suitable aftermarket floor mats? The lay-out is certainly unconventional.

I had a set laying around and tried them out, work pretty well. Cadillac deVille I think they are.

Thanks, NCRanchero. I didn't look to see how long you've been a member here at FTE. Think I've been a member almost forever.

The most information on the TransCon is over at another website. But the layout over there makes it so you've got to spend a lot of time futzing around to take in and absorb any new material. How do we get those folks over here, where new info is quickly absorbed, and folks get to throw in their two cents, and expertise. Whenever I had an emergency, FTE folks were always there for me, even though I'm not mechanically inclined and could not offer much help to others.

Just an observation.

Been here since '03. There is a "new post" button to hit for the new stuff. Hard to beat good old FTE though!

Free HD Rubber Floor Mats (one hour of labor)

If you are not chewing gum and talking on the cellphone while driving, keep your eyes posted on the highway for the heavy rubber truck flaps (not the thinner plastic ones) that are from semi tractor trailers.

Carefully return to the spot, park off the road where safe to do so, put on your flashers and exit your vehicle and cautiously retreive the flap. Repeat as necessary. Is this enough lawyer speak to keep from getting sued?

Make yourself a pattern from some taped together newspaper sheets and with a sharp matt knife cut the flap for an exact fit. (Cut away from your body parts)
Stay away from the new cheap $5 flaps, I bought one from NAPA and it stunk to high heaven. Toxic, Chinese, God knows what gave it the funky smell, but I reluctantly tossed it within a day. Your best bet is a used one made of natural rubber that has had time to off-gas.

It may even have a logo from a trucking company from some faraway state.

Got some at Advance Auto. Not perfect, but good. Deep tread for spills. 11 bucks each.
