The original wool loop carpeting I took out of my '67 (maybe '66) B in '79 
had a form-fitting, seamless one piece tunnel carpet.  Also, the carpeting 
over the rear wheel wells was one piece and seamless.  Someday, when I have 
nothing else on my "to do" list, I'm going to make a form and try to stretch 
wet wool carpeting over the form.
