I bought ACC cutpile by the yard after returning the poor quality ACC molded.

The by-the-yard is covered with carpet clumps. Brushing my had over the carpet, I get more clumps. The molded set did not have this problem

Is ACC the best place to get the carpet? Are there any alternatives? Id like to get the molded carpet but the reviews are certainly mixed..........

ACC is pretty much the monopoly these days. Over the years, they've pretty much purchased/absorbed all of their competitors.. Regarding "shedding", I don't think the carpet really sheds.. I think it's just the residual "mess" left from the actual cutting/shaving process (i.e. "cut-pile"). When they mold the carpet, they might go to the trouble to quickly vacuum much of that away. But when you buy by the yard, you're just getting the raw material as it comes off the roll. I've been selling cut-pile carpets all my life, and I always remember them coming out of the box with plenty of loose fuzz everywhere. Once installed, one good and thorough pass with the vacuum, and you should be good to go.

I used molded ACC in my 72.I had a slight fitment problem due to the 4 speed hump in the floor.If only they wouldve left a little extra,lol.No need to cut it so tight.

Just received my ACC, via Camaro Central, shipped to UK, took it out of box to help the folds relax, and notice no cut out for the auto floor shift, I though ACC's came with this part cut out. I ordered the right one, but on the box it says without. God knows where I'm gonna keep it until I'm ready to fit, I think my wife might have a suggestion, lol

When I said my wife might have a suggestion where to put the carpet, I wasn't expecting this

At least she didn't put you in the spare room. Been close to that a couple times around here over the years.
