    New Hydro-Turf Installed on 96 XP

    Installed some Hydro-Turf on my 96 XP last night.

    I got a sheet and cut the mats myself.
    Used the original mats as a pattern and cut the turf with a razor knife.
    Used Weldwood contact cement to stick the down.

    It was super easy and took about 2 hours from start to finish.

    I am thinking about putting some on the sides where my legs rest (just in front of the XP sticker)

    Tell me what you think....

    I used a razor to pull the black rivet covers off,
    Then I drilled the rivets... first with a small bit to deteriorate the inside of the rivet.
    Next I used a bigger bit to remove the rivet head.
    Then I just pulled the old stuff up.
    I then made all old rivets flush or pushed them thru.
    Then I used a mixture of cleaners to clean the foot beds.

    Yes, I filled in the holes with contact cement.
    The stuff I got brushed on pretty thin so I don't know if how waterproof the rivet holes are.
    I wasn't too concerned because i had some missing rivets anyways and never had a flooding issue.
    If I have some leaks, I will pull the turf up and fill in with body filler (I have a lot left over because I bought a roll)
