Floor mat templates

Finally managed to try out my mat templates. I found a website a while back that had an outline drawing of fitted mats. So I drew round the outline on the CAD at work, and printed them out full size.

Passenger side looks good, but the drivers side has a weird cut out on the top right corner beneath the gas pedal. Not sure if this is quite right - what do you guys think?

paper is a bad material for floor mats!

Ha!!!

I'd extend the driver's upper right. That's a complex curve so you may have to put in a notch there. If you plan to sew around the perimeter, then that notch can be all sewed perimeter...

I agree that the drivers side needs to be longer. I think the notch top right is to go behind the gas pedal, but it seems too low down at the moment.

This is the picture I drew round. Unfortunately I can't remember which website I found it on now, but they were definitely tailored mats for our cars.

Aha, that looks like the website I copied the picture from. Yours should be exactly the same shape then, in theory.

Has your drivers side mat got the same notch in the top right underneath the gas pedal??

Yes, thanks very much for that. They were very helpful when it came to working out the scale for my drawing. I also noticed that the pictures of the original type mats you had, seemed to show a notch on the drivers side, but your new mats don't have it. Does it seem to make any difference in the fit?

I guess it makes sense to trim the mat back around the pivot point of the gas pedal, but on my template it seems to be miles away from the pedal(or the template is too short).

Thanks Creighton, that's very interesting, yours has the notch too.

Could you possibly give me an overall length from top to bottom (pedal end to seat end), so I can check the scale?

Thanks. My template measures about right, so I can't be far out. I'll check the drawing again tomorrow when I get to work.

Here are more dimensions:
15" across at widest point. Notch starts 6 1/4" from top.
Mounting hole center 2 1/4" from side 2" from bottom.
Sorry the Metric tape is hiding:-)
Need anything else just let me know.

Thanks, that's very helpful. (I didn't even know you had metric tapes over there!) I'll update my sketch, print out another "mat" full size and see how it looks. It's interesting the subtle differences between the factory ones and the custom ones Boston-Bull sent me pictures of.
