    The other issue is that being as the carpet is one piece on the floor and then the upper deck is installed and bolted down you can't easily remove ALL the carpet. So you have to cut it somewhere. Cut around the floor perimeter and you'll see it under the rubber base strip. Cut behind the seat base and you'll have a gap you'll also see.
    Yea, I know the floor is definately ugly. I meant I wonder what it would cost to hire someone to actually finish the floor, like sand/fill/gel coat it, lol.

    The trimming issue around the ends is a good point, hmmm...

    And my carpet looks fairly decent; I believe I have the "new" kind, and I just power wash it every so often. It definately still gets matted though.

    I tried to remove my floor today with no luck.

    I removed all the screws and there is no way I could lift it up.

    What else needs to be removed for the floor to come up?

    mine were only on the perimeter of the floor. nothing under the seats. It kinda stuck by the bow walk thru( driver side) from some excess carpet glue.

    Came out quite easily 10 to 12 screws i believe.

    pic 1 to 3 are of the floor , hope the 08 is the same as the 07
