Maybe I'm just confused as to whether we're tlking about the carpet piece
being bound around the cutout for the shift lever or at the outisde edges.

That carpet piece, with the tranny shift lever hole is never bound on the
edges. Never was as original equipment never has been since by any
manufacturer. Reason... all of the outer edges are covered by other portions
of the carpet set when properly installed. The carpet edges will not ravel
and are never seen so there really is no reason for you to have the edges
bound by either sending it back or doing it locally. save the dough and
hassle and fergedaboudit. ANd try not to jump to conclusions without all the
Sorry, Deano. That is NOT true. TR4 original carpets were charcoal grey
were bound with black around the Shift lever boot. The replacement which I
bought in '92 from TRF was the same as the original as far as the bound
In '92 the only carpet color available was black. The binding was/is also
black. TRF responded to our request for the original color and charcoal has
been available for several years from them.
However, why Paul's was not bound is beyond my ken.
