I have a set of brand new AC Auto carpeting, when I opened it the entire carpet was puckered up in various place's who has trouble installing this carpet?? Who has installed this and what method did you use to flatten the carpet? so far I have used water and bricks to weight in down and flatten it, I used water to soften it and bricks to flatten it, who has a better idea and is my method a bad idea???

I have new carpet to go in, haven't installed it yet though. Everything I read about installing basically said to leave it out in the sun to soften up. It will be difficult to install and trim.

Thank you Enraged, I called customer service they "basically said the same thing, they also advised to use a hair dryer, I'll try both. What did you use carpet backing or sound deadener?

I haven't installed it yet, I'm just going to rip out the stock crappy burgandy carpet and put in the new black carpet as is.

I installed but had to send back the first one because there was a big gap. I sent my original carpet and they sent it back. I left it out in the sun while I made the cuts and it seemed to unfold.

Why did you send them your original carpet?? To show them the difference in the gap?? Thanks very much "E"
