Hi,

Does anyone have any ideas what the best way to carpet arches might be? I can't seem to get them wrinkle free!

Cheers
Mark

Same as above, seemed to work the best for me. Once you put the side half circle on. I put this under the lip of the top bit and cut through them both to get a perfect join and no lap.

It depends on how flexible the carpet is - plus how handy you are.....

There's also a decision to be made on whether you want insulation/sound proofing on the arch first, which will obviously change the finished article once carpeted......

I honestly think the neatest method overall is to box in - that way you can insulate/sound proof plus have an easier surface to carpet - and any 'dead' space can always be put to use for something.....

If you have the right carpet it can be done in one piece wrinkle free, I got my carpet from megavanmats and its really pliable and stretchy, I managed mine no worries and thats the first time i,ve ever lined a van.
