Hi guys. I have a question concerning carpeting for the 24-25 Tudor. Where does the front carpet meet the back carpet? I know it meets under the passenger/jump-seat somewhere. Does anyone have a photo or illustration showing this "joining area"? Hope someone has an answer. Thanks in advance.

I can't find any photos of an original car. Perhaps these will help. This is a repro carpet in my 1925 Tudor and the Body List illustration.

Thank you Richard, this will help a lot. My plans are to make my own patterns then take them to a local custom automobile upholster. I'm sure they will be able to get the square weave carpet and cloth binding, as both are available.

That is a very good way to do it. The rear carpet I bought was large in both directions. I had built the body so there may have been some slight differences from the original. It was easy to cut it to size but the binding isn't as good as the experts can do it.
Best of luck with the project.
Rich
