SANDGRABBA MATS:

Designed for a DIY Install your Sandgrabbas have a unique fastening system that uses two clips designed to fit under the left- and right-hand scuff plates of your vehicle. These are clipped to the mats from the factory and the first step is to remove these from the mats and secure under the scuff plates. Next step is to slide back the front seats and position the Sandgrabba Mats to the shape of the floor pan making sure that they are in the correct position then slide the clips along the sill plates to line up with the fastening position on the Sandgrabbas. Push firmly down on the clips until they are clipped together and then slide the front seats forward to ensure they slide forward without any obstruction. Repeat the installation for the rear mats and if these are supplied as two-piece mats, finally using the Velcro on the mats secure the mats firmly together. Your mats are now correctly installed and ready to protect your vehicle.

These are clipped to the mats from the factory and the first step is to remove these from the mats and secure under the scuff plates. Next step is to slide back the front seats and position the Trap Mats to the shape of the floor pan making sure that they are in the correct position then slide the clips along the sill plates to line up with the fastening position on the Trap Mats.

SUNGRABBA DASH MATS: 

Moulded to the exact shape of the dash of the vehicle your new Dash Mat is supplied with Velcro Tabs from the factory. The first step to a successful installation is to ensure that the dash is completely free of any dust or grime and that where you plan to attach the self-adhesive Velcro tabs is completely free of any protective coatings such as Armor All or similar as this, if not removed, it will make it difficult to secure the velcro tabs.The next step is to position the tabs to secure the mat and remove the protective tape from the tabs and attach them to the surface of the dash. Once this is completed join the Velcro tabs together, the protective tape remaining on the top of each tab. Now position your Dash Mat into the correct position on the dash being careful to line up all vents including the demister vents closest to the windscreen. Once you are happy with the positioning carefully lift the left hand side of the mat to approximately one third of its length and remove the protective tape from the Velcro tabs exposing the adhesive surface of each tab. Lower the dash mat carefully ensuring it has not moved out of position and then press down firmly on each of the tabs to allow the adhesive to attach to the underside of the Dash Mat. Now working from the right-hand side carefully lift the Dash Mat to expose the remaining tabs. Remove the protective tape as before then carefully put the Dash Mat down again ensuring that it hasn't moved. Push down on all tabs to allow the adhesive to attach to the underside of the Dash Mat and to secure your mat is in position. Your Dash Mat is now successfully installed and ready to protect your dash from harmful UV Sunlight.

 

LOOP AND PLUSH PILE CARPETS:

Please note that there are no holes cut in the carpet for the gear shift, seats or belts. These are not recommended for DIY install and we advise customers to engage the services of a qualified Motor Trimmer Upholsterer to ensure a professional fit. For those who want to tackle the task as a DIY the following details some of the important steps to follow however it should be noted that our Carpet will vary slightly from the originals. If you intend to use your old carpet as a template to cut any holes, wait until you have fitted the carpet completely and trimmed as it is then that both carpets will be a better match.

Basic installation instructions:

Please note with such a large range of vehicles catered for these instructions are a general guide only.

  1. Remove door sill plates, kick panels, front seats and rear seat base. Remove centre console (where applicable), seat belt bolts and any other trims retaining old carpet.
     
  2. Remove old carpet, keep it do not discard it yet. Remove old underfelt taking note of where it was. Vacuum or sweep floor clean. Place the old carpet over your new moulded carpet.
    Using the old carpet as a template mark any holes or additional cut outs on the new carpet with chalk. Do not cut yet!

     
  3. If removing underfelt only, lay it in the same area as you removed it from.
     
  4. Starting with the rear carpet, place your new carpet in the vehicle by centering it on the tunnel and working towards the sides.
    Now repeat this with the front carpet matching the contours of the carpet with the floor.
    You may need to cut some of the holes you marked out earlier (gearstick, console brackets etc).

     
  5. After confirming the proper fit, cut the required holes as you fit the carpet to the vehicle.
    please note it is better to start with a small hole in the carpet just large enough to fit over the object, then enlarge it in small increments until sufficient to get the object through.
    Do not overcut!

     
  6. Depending on your particular model of vehicle it may be necessary to trim excess carpet from the sides, as most carpets are left slightly wider in case carpet has been fitted slightly off centre.
     
  7. Replace rear seat base, seat belt bolts, centre console, front seat bolts, kick panels, door sill platess and any other trims you removed earlier.
     
  8. Sit in the driver’s seat and enjoy your new carpet.

PVC VINYL FLOORING:

Please note that there are no holes cut in the vinyl for the gear shift, seats or belts. These are not recommended for DIY install and we advise customers to engage the services of a qualified Motor Trimmer Upholsterer to ensure a professional fit. For those who want to tackle the task as a DIY the following details some of the important steps to follow.

 

As we supply such a large range of vehicles the below instructions are general in nature, however if you follow these you will have a better knowledge of the installation process.

  • When you receive your Vinyl Flooring and new Underlay, open it up and make sure you have everything you need. If you lay it in the sun it will become more pliable and make your install easier.
     
  • Lay your new vinyl flat and pop the moulded contours back into place. Allow a few hours for the product to relax back into its proper shape.
  • Remove door sill plates, kick panels, front seats and rear seat base. (At this point also remove the centre console if required). Remove seat belt bolts and any other trim that is holding the old carpet.
     
  • Remove original carpet or vinyl. Remove original underfelt. Give the floor of your vehicle a sweep or vacuum to ensure it is clean before laying new vinyl.
    Do not throw out the original carpet or vinyl.
    Pay attention to where the underlay was positioned

     
  • Place new underlay into your vehicle and trim to shape. We don't recommend reusing old underlay. If you need underlay, this is available on our web site to order.
     
  • Lay the new vinyl flat on the ground and place the old carpet or vinyl over the top as a template to mark out the shape- mark holes or any additional cut outs you may need to make to suit your individual vehicle. Depending on the difference in the two items this can be sometimes best left until the install has been trimmed and as the last process.
    Do not cut anything yet
     
  • Working with the rear vinyl first, place the new vinyl in your vehicle by centring the vinyl on the tunnel and work out toward the sides.
     
  • Do the same to the front vinyl, ensuring you are matching the contours to your vehicle correctly.
     
  • You may need to cut out some of your vehicle points - gearstick, console brackets, etc. Please note our moulded floorings come with NO holes pre-cut, as each vehicle is slightly different.
     
  • Cut any remaining holes that you have marked to fit the vinyl correctly.
     
  • The best way to cut any holes is to start with a small incision and make it larger a little at a time to ensure you do not over cut.
     
  • Finalise the shape of your vinyl by trimming any excess.
     
  • Put your vehicle back together by replacing your rear seat base, seat belt bolts, centre console, front seat, kick panels, door sill plates and any other trims you have left over!

All you have to do now is sit back and enjoy your awesome new vehicle interior!
