70 Mach 1 Carpet

Okay guys I did some reading in the threads and just want to see if anyone has recently bough new carpet for a 70 Mach 1? Is Acc the way to go or do you recommend another manufacturer?

ACC is the only way to go, period. Nobody else has the tooling for the 1970 Mach 1 inserts.

69Bossnine Did ACC ever update their inserts to be same length as the original inserts?

Yes, the inserts now span the entire length (front to back) of the front section of carpet. The only thing that's incorrect, is that the front 6-7 inches of the insert is the same grain as the square area where your right heel rests under the gas pedal (a rough grain, levant/ruffino-like). It should be smooth in that area. But it's up where you can't see anything at least.

Looking at the carpet set I pulled out, it appears that my days of riding ACC for better quality are far from over...
