Seems to me that the formed carpet set I recently got for my 67 BGT 
was a one piece tunnel carpet set.  I just dropped it in and glued 
the edges down to the floor.  Then I dropped in the floor mats, back 
panels etc.  Denise - as I recall, the wheel well carpeting was 
already formed and backed with jute as well.  I got the set from the 
roadster factory, I think.  If it's important, I can try to find the 
old receipt to confirm place and price.
