    So this may be a weird question.
    im gonna be ordering the ACC mass backed carpet for my 74 4 door.
    except im having it shipped to a friend in the states that will put it in her trunk when she comes to canada because shipping is a million bucks.

    except i need to know a few things so she's not in over her head.
    how big is that carpet?
    how heavy is it?
    can she like take it out of the box and fold it up a little bit to make it fit in her trunk a bit better?

    maybe this is more headache than its worth....but it's like 1/3 the price to ship it to america and with the border being the way it is day trips are out of the question for the foreseeable future because you need a negative covid test on the american side to get back into canada so doing that the same day you wanna cross is a gamble.

    thanks for any help!

      If it helps, I just bought a vinyl floor for my standard cab truck. The box is about 18x12x36 and 15 lbs or so.

        any dimensions/weights help.
        ive never even so much as held a flooring for a vehicle before so im coming in blind here.

        also this "friend" is my ex-wife and she's driving up to pick up our son and bringing the carpet because the car will be otherwise empty so the less i can inconvenience her the better it is for my future.

        thanks!!!!

          The shipper, ACC should be able to answer those questions.
          They'll know weight, dimensions etc, No?

            ordering through rockauto. i figured someone here would have an answer quick enough (which they did! took about 4 minutes!) as well since I don't have time to be on the phone today, but can be flipping tabs on the computer.

              Keep in mind that the mass backing makes the carpet much stiffer, I would roll it if possible rather than fold.
              Maybe if she has a 80/20 split rear seat it could be 1/2 in trunk and 1/2 in the back seat.

                I dont think you could fold the carpet. They have rolled it for smallest possible box. Mine was about 12'X12"X 48" also.

                Doesn't the supplier have a shipping weight?

                Make sure when you order it, you get it cut long. You will have a little extra so you can make it fit like you want. Our member @RPM440+6 is a dealer in all things interior and can help you with your purchase.

                  When I saw the thread title I immediately thought "Does it match the drapes?"
