Sound Control – Fitting and Binding the Front Carpet of the 1970 Dodge Charger

There’s been some big progress on the 1970 Dodge Charger currently in the trim shop at Bridge Classic Cars.

Kath had to cut the carpet to get a good fit during the test fit of the piece but rather than leave it, she has bound the edge to match the original edging fitted to the carpet set. Now with the piece ready to be fitted, it was time to get the final bits of sound deadening in place.

Carefully the trim shop put the new sound deadening material into place using reference photos to get them into the same placement as the original.

Once the sound deadening was firmly in place, Kath then began the process of laying the carpet panel into its place and securing it. Using high-spec carpeting adhesive, the carpet was laid into the Charger’s front footwell and firmly in place.

Next will be getting the trims, consoles and seats ready to go into this iconic American Muscle Car.
