For the last week I've put down a panel a day of either insulation or carpet or both. I'm down to just one main carpet section: driver/passenger side tranny panels with verticle tunnel bridging both pieces (under the dash).
What I have left after that are the under sides of the doors. I did not align the aluminum under the doors when I had the body on but given that SRP will mount and align the body on the chassis soon, I suspect I must wait until the body is on so I can align the aluminum and rivet it down before I can carpet over it. Is that correct or should I rivet it down now???

I am a little lost. On the MK III the v-shaped panel under the door follows the contour of the side impact brace. Since you can't adjust the brace because it's part of the frame, what are you aligning. If the aluminum follows the bracing then it should fit and can't be adjusted. I must be missing something. Help me out, I don't understand.

FFR now sells and includes the underdoor aluminum that Jay Bird has pictured in his link. They started doing this on 1/1/06, I believe. My kit came with the flat section that was supposed to recieve bulb seal. I ended up calling FFR and purchasing the new/revised underdoor aluminum, more than worth the money and really finishes of that area. It also worked with the supplied carpet.
