subaru didn't use "molded" carpet so there's no molded kits available for gl's. i just looked cuz i'm replacing the carpet in my 84 hatch.

i ended up buying 4 yards of bulk from auto carpet direct online. i had a good experience with them and the carpet i got (plain cutpile in navy blue) looks to be higher quality than subaru's oem stuff from 84.

their website is automotivecarpet.com in case you decide to go that way and wanna check them out.

as far as the seats... i'm replacing my fronts. i called around to auto upholstery shops and they're ridiculously expensive out here, especially if you need foam repair. replacing can be much cheaper and if you wanna take the time/effort to make something else fit you can upgrade your seats, too.

i haven't decided what to do about my back seat, but i'll probably eventually have it recovered to match my fronts after i actually install them months from now.

JC whitney lists them, but they suck. I bought one for the brat from them and it doesn't fit quite right and no carpet for behind the seats was included. Good luck.

This is all that I could find. Cool thing is they have molded carpet and vinyl, soundproofing, waterproof underlaymant, and lots more.

I plan on tearing it all out and just going with the molded rubber stuff. wheelin in the hills and through creeks can ruin carpet in no time at all.....just a thought,but if you undercoat the whole inside and go with mats, clean up is EZ.

I have a grey STD hatch floor rubber setup in a box that I am not going to use now. No reasonable offer refused, needs a little cleaning work if I remember but it should clean up real neat.
