What about the rest of the crap that the floor mat didnt catch? Such as what appears to be more M&Ms ready to be crushed under the gas pedal.

and you can get it in whatever color/pattern floats your boat. Like I said I avoided the patterned stuff because if it didn't match 100% from drivers side to passenger I'd lose it
Ordered my 3M vinyl wrap from a place called MetroStyle last week. Hoping to have time to install next week!

Also need to respray most of the black plastic trim as the rubbery texture stuff is peeling. Have seen videos about using a variety of SEM products.

Thanks! Yea looks wise I like the stock rubber better for sure. Still need to pickup a set. Might stretch it out the generic carpet mats it came with until closer to winter.

Def. not mm under the gas pedal but due to the necessity of a notch for the pedal there will be a pile of dust that collects from shoe.
