Once we get our first kit off of the production line we will be installing it and filming the installation so that full installation instructions will be available to you. We also have our toll-free number (877-629-3876) if you are have any questions about your installation either before, after or during your installation.
In the mean time I have compiled a list of information about the tools you will need as well as the first video we filmed for our Mazda3 carpet kit. Despite being different cars, the work and even fastener locations are nearly 100% identical.
Installation of our Premium Carpet Kits can be done by the DIYer if you chose to. Simply put, I would recommend that 4 hours be put aside for disassembly, beer drinking, installation, and reassembly. Most average Do It Yourself ‘ers will complete the install sooner.

Disassembly of the interior
is typically under 30 minutes. Steps include:
- removing the front seats
- the back seat (the seat bottom only)
- door sill (this is the plastic panels at the bottom of the door opening)
- two B pillar panels
- removal of the center console
Detailed printed installation instruction for the carpet fitting is included with you carpet. Reinstalling the interior is just the reverse of disassembly.

Below is a video of our interior disassembly of a Mazda3 which is very similar to both the Mazda6 and the Mazdaspeed6. We will be video taping the installation of our prototype kit and then making it available to all those who purchased our kits.
