Thanks for taking the time looking up the nos on the carpet snaps and
etc. I found them at Miamicorp.com.
If not to much trouble, could you find no for the snap covers that can
be covered with material?
Can I assume there is also a special tool to cover snaps with material?
Thanks again

Gary

There are several 3M spray glues in cans. Most of them won't hold well at all. The ones from wally world are useless.

We used to get a specific one from the auto body supply store here locally that would hold headliners in. It was in a white can, but that has been many, many years ago.

Yeah, I'll get you the number for the snaps too. The stud that goes under that thing I already gave you the part numbers for, is the same. But the top that you cover definately has to be covered on a button machine. You have to have special dies and the molds. If you buy all the stuff to make it with it's expensive. But if you'd send me your material, I'd be glad to cover you some!


Later dude

I didn't use snaps or anything on the battery cover. I didn't want to cut that big of hole in my carpet either. I left my carpet in tact and covered the cover as it is. To get to my battery, I just remove the trim on the edge and kick panel. Then, I can pull the carpet back giving me plenty of room to access and remove the battery. I personally don't like the cut out on the carpet for the battery and I've seen some job really kill the interior. Maybe it's seem like too much work to get to the battery? I installed a battery cut off switch behind my seat. So when I do electrical, I just switch the battery off killing power to the whole truck. I figure the only time I have to pull the carpet up now is when I replace the battery, which is once every 5 years or so? Just a suggestion for you guys.

Thanks again for the info. Not ready yet to do the snaps, but If you don`t mind I`ll take you up on the offer to cover some snaps at a later date.
Your a great guy and thanks for going out of your way to help all of us FTE`ers
Also apologizes to DR Smith sp? for interrupting his thread.

Hey Gusso, when you get ready for the snaps, let me know. I'll just give you however many snap studs you need. They aint expensive, the ones I'll give you will just have a hole in the center of them and you just put a screw in them.

The only thing I'd tell you is to make sure you measure and space them evenly!! I've seen them where folks just put them anywhere they wanted, and they look BAD!! And youre welcome for the help, that's what we're here for!!
