I really like this, what did you use to cut the mat? I used to be able to find the 1973-87 mats everywhere but most places do not carry them anymore.

Summit lists the mat for a '72 short bed as being 78. Can you tell me where you get yours? It fit very well and looked like it was made for it. They do not have a custom fit for the 67-72 Chevy. The mats are made of chopped up tires I think and look very nice. It is a long bed but the short bed one fits good too. Posted via Mobile Device I too wanted a rubber mat in lwb my truck.
I ordered one from Summit Racing for my K20. Not a custom fit but better than no mat. They really quite down the bed, you can really hear a difference after it's installed. I like it doesnt have a logo or anything on it. I guess the trucks are 23 years old now, where has the time gone. I have spray in liners in my other trucks.
I bought it at a local camper store years ago. If you have a Les Schwab in your area check it out. I bought one for my 69 about ten years ago and it still looks new. Can you tell me where you get yours? Posted via Mobile Device I have never found a custom fit one. A pair of shears or tin snips can be used too.
This year would also mark the final year for the 2nd series before being replaced by the 3rd. I split the difference so there was only a two inch gap fore and aft of the wheel houses and cut the front and back to fit my short bed. It is thick so it takes a few passes with a box cutter to get through, but it leaves a nice clean edge. The mat is thick and holds up well. I kept the cut-out sections from the wheel tubs to toss on the tailgate for a little protection when I load the bed. It looks good and works really well.
I'm curious as to how well they fit or if any cutting is needed, or if the mat is square rectangle or if there are cut-out for the wheels tubs. A husband can be happy. I ordered one from Summit Racing for my K20. It's been awhile so I don't remember all the details, but I don't think I trimmed the sides. I used a universal style and cut it to fit my last truck. I measured out the dimensions of my bed and cut the mats with a seam in the middle where the 2 pieces come together.
The window cranks were also slightly longer than 1971. Those are good numbers if the mat just fits between the wheel tubs. Anybody have any experience with this or another spot that would have one? The rear view mirror was now glued to the cab instead of bolted. Trust Ecklers for all of your restoration and replacement needs for your truck, racer, show car, street rod, or daily driver. I was thinking a little heavy duty though and i'm not sure if that is what others would want. I do not remember a name brand or part number.
I made a template to fit the wheel tubs cutout using thin cardboard and then transferred it to the mat for a perfect fit. . . . . . .
