engine cover welting

Recommended Posts

Hi new to this forum just finishing a redo on a 1989 skier . I replaced the floors ,stringers ,you know the drill . I just finished the carpet and the last thing was the engine cover, pulled of the vinyl and the carpet replaced the carpet carefully reinstalled the vinyl went to staple on the welting that covers the transition from carpet to vinyl and the stuff disintegrated. Any sources on the stuff?

Are you talking about the black material that goes around the inside edge over the vinyl staples? If so, I've got a bunch left over....?

FYI, those pics on the site do not show the staple channel. That actually shows the bottom side of the welt. The top side is almost exactly what I pulled out of mine which was original. Allows you to spread it apart and run staples in the channel then flaps back over to cover the staples.

@rfx: a company called Great Lakes Skipper buys a bunch of stuff from manufacturers and resells it and they have a large selection of interior vinyls, welting, etc.
