Hello guys!

As I'll grab one Ferrari FF by HotWheels Elite soon, I'd like to know how to carpet the boot and floor of it (black carpeting). Tutorials and pics are welcome. If I remember right, Raidou has already carpeted his FF.

Thanks in advance!  :occasion14:

You can find 1/18 carpets on ebay that are self-adhesive. Just peel off the back and stick it onto the surface. You may want to disassemble the car first though as it's much easier that way.

I actually bought a few to put into the interior of my budget models. It's amazing how much better the model looks with the carpets.

I hope it will make the HWE Ferrari FF look better (I mean that it will increase its quality and not make it look cheapy, you know). Anyway I'll try to find these somewhere near me. Do you think that local stores sells carpets?

Check out your local craft store. They have felt sheets with an adhesive side. You make templates with masking tape and cut them out. Once adhered to the model, you can trim it with an Exacto knife.

Where is it written that the more diecast $$$ equals a better diecast?

Thanks for the tip Al! I'm thinking about doing the same with my FF.

There's so many felt adhesives on eBay, does anyone mind sharing one in particular that they've had experience/ good success with?

Do you guys not have Hobby Lobby or Michaels in Seattle? An 8.5"x11" sheet is something like $.50 here.

BTW, check you PM box as I tried to send you one and it is full.

Fixed my PM. No Hobby Lobbies over here. Last time I was at Michaels was to specifically look for said felt paper and didn't find any.

Thanks for the link supercars, but would you say that's kind of "hairy?"

I personally don't think so. The pic used is probably enlarged.

Could you upload a few pics of your results with it? It would be much more easier to get a taste by seeing it applied. Also, anyone who've done it can post some pics here.

I guess people's definition of 'hairy' differ from person to person. Here's some pics for you to judge and decide for yourself

The model is Bburago Lexus SC430. To me, the carpet improved the look of the budget model dramatically.
