Exmoor Trim Install

So following up on the other trim post(s) these are the photos from the completed project. The Exmoor product is pretty good. I would say it’s worth the cost. You just have to take you time and get the notching right. I had to modify where the bonnet release handle is and where the AC drain tube exits. I used a Dremel for some of the notching, what I found with that is it makes too many particulates…if you use a higher speed it melts the mat and provides a smoother finish for the notch.
It took me longer than I anticipated because I wanted to do some touch up pant on the boxes and I cleaned and used Dynamat and or cool it from Summit (no reason for the mix I had both so…). The main problem was/is the center console now sits ¼” higher not allowing the shifter trim piece to fit. I’m going to raise the shifter platform to compensate. In the end the difference is noticeable right now, but we will have to wait for the summer highs of 110 and a road trip.

Total time for cleaning, paint, trim and sound deadening- 8 hours give or take over a 14 hour day.

Very nice job. I have the same matting system in my 110, just a shame the Army didnt do as nice a job when they fitted it to the 110 as part of the Tithonus project.

The noise is reduced by about 1/3 and the heat exchange by 1/2.

Bill, I see you have an auto, without the NAS console? Do you think this trim would fit under a NAS auto console?

Edit: Fit without modifying the console if it took the place of the original carpeting, i should say.

Yeah there is a 1/4 inch elevation problem. I'm resolving that by raising the shift platform 1/4" to allow the trim piece to go back in place. The console was super easy to remove, you just have to be careful and think it through. There is a post on it and ECR has a post also on their site.

Bill, did you get the shifter trim installed? Im about to do this myself if you got that elevation issue resolved. Which Exmoor Kit did you get, the R380? Did it come with those 3ish pieces as shown in your first pic or did you purchase separate pieces? Im tired of smelling wet dog from the PO. Thanks!

Yes I installed the three piece. Didnt fix the shifter issue yet, but my confidence is high that it wont be a big deal at all. Just make sure your plan of attack is well organized. Even though I thought the notching was right I made three mistakes. Youll have the AC drain to contend with and the bonnet release. This is a helpful link for removing the center console, if you dont already have it. http://www.eastcoastrover.com/LEDflasher.html

Thanks! I guess the Exmoor mat has some sort of backing that makes it thicker than the factory carpet. Depending on when I get it, hope to be tackling this come late January.

no backing but be careful the way you handle it. If you man handle it it will tear at a seam. Not because its cheap...its just molded and very heavy material so the thinner cutout could seperate. While taking mine out of the box that happened to me.
