Ive done quite a bit on my metro I just havent posted anything. But Ive put all new floor mats in. Installed a kenwood stereo. straight piped it and it sounds awesome

I put a fender on drivers side because the other fender was so dented in after someone hit me at a bonfire. Also have a brand new Mitsubushi alternator because the

other one broke. I've also painted the rims and the hubcaps. The rims are gloss black and the hubcaps are a bright gloss red. I painted the airfilter cover a gloss black

and put in a new filter and I think that's it. There's probably more but I cant think of them right now

i used rocker guard for my floor after i patched the holes and i bought 2 spray on cans for the main section of the floor(i did the floor bottom and 3"-5" up the side of the metal), 2-4 cans would probably be good depending on how much you are planning on putting on, i thought i had enough with 2 and i also rocker guarded the bottom side with the two cans, but Rocker guard is different then bedliner but they are around the same consistency will give you a rough amount to use(each can was 550g so 1.1kg, or about 2.5-3lbs and you can convert that to oz.Razz). ooh yeah the car was a 1991 volkswagen 4 door jetta, incase you were interested in the area i painted.

Well the reason i took out the carpet is it was so covered in mud and it was being torn to poopie oh and my girlfriend puked on it so yeah. It didnt look good at all so I

thought I might as well just paint it or put bedliner, and bedliner seemed like the better option since its tough. also how much did you pay for that spray stuff.

i bought 3 cans, the first 2 i bought for $10 each and the last one i bought another time for $6 on sale(i thought i wouldnt have enough), pretty cheap and if you want to get over spray off try gasoline(or brake cleaner) before it dries. i thought it was pretty cheap for the amount i got, i put a coat of primer on but your not going to be painting the base metal.

What about looking for a Rubber matt and put that in your car, it would probably look better then a carpet when it gets wet and dirty, and thats what we have in our trucks but they came stock like that(look at some Chevy's and GMC's). if your interested look for some stuff like 1/8"-1/4" thick, i dont know where you would go to get it but i was thinking of putting it in my car and the only thing i thought of was an Exercise Matt or rubber flooring from a Chevy or GMC.
Also check for a Price on Rock Auto for your Carpet, They say they want $122 but i dont know how much shipping would be.

Check out a local pond supply place and see if they have 1/8" EPDM sheet (Pond liner), . I've found it prettycheap there, and its tough stuff.

Your pulling air out of the engine bay, that would make it a hot air intake. You are better off with the stock airbox.
