e30, new carpet & retrofitted heated seats, pics ...

followed Ferdinand's advice and cut a little off., thanks.
there were oem pre-cut starters, perhaps it was a replacement carpet.

some of the highlights include...

- removing accelerator pedal bottom section from floor, push-in lower tabs, pull upwards and it will release.

- removing accelerator stop peg, very easy, but a must do prior to carpet install.

- also, retrofitted wire harness for heated seat, very easy too, just ran it alone existing window switch harness.
Positive comes from power block to the left of steering column, unique connector to unique receptor,
can't miss, to the left of RD/GR & WH/PL.
negative mates with other grounds in same general area.
no relays involved.

- figuring out wire mesh for extra gauges, hahhaha, i don't label nuthings

- and last but not least, a snaped soft top lid handle, it feel apart, hahahha., good times
