Auto Custom Carpets
Auto Custom Carpets (ACC) has been around since its founding in 1977 by Jack Holland. Mr. Holland has since retired and the company is essentially employee owned. ACC manufactures molded replacement carpet for most cars and pickup trucks dating back to the mid 1940s. In addition the company makes floor mats (for cars, pickups and SUVs), trunk mats, a great selection of vacuum molded vinyl flooring and sound deadeners to protect your vehicle from excess noise and heat. he company tufts, dyes and finishes it’s own carpeting. Manufacturing facilities are located in Alabama and Georgia, while the corporate office is in Anniston, Alabama. ACC is the favorite of car restoration specialists who want to specify original fit, material and color for their current projects carpet replacement. In addition, ACC sells an essential line of auto restoration supplies for Ford, Chevrolet, Toyota, Nissan, Dodge, Chrysler and Honda. So if “tricking out” a car or pickup is your thing, ACC is your restoration specialist.

ACC Replacement Carpet
Automotive replacement carpet is what Auto Custom Carpets is really about. From cut and sewn carpeting, cut with CAD controlled CNC equipment for early model cars(usually before 1960), to precisely molded carpet sets for later models(from early 1960’s to present time), ACC makes replacement carpet in seven of the original automotive carpet materials plus their own premium ultra plush Essex carpeting. The original carpet materials include TruVette, CutPile, Loop, Nylon, Daytona, Tuxedo and Gros Point. ACC lets you choose from over 200 original OEM colors and 15,000 styles. Most of the carpet materials may be backed with rubber latex or polyethylene. Heel pads are placed on the carpet using techniques similar to the OEM. You get padding if there was padding on the original carpet. Mass backing may be optionally added to any molded carpet set to help insulate against heat/cold and deaden vehicle noises. Edges on the Cut and Sewn carpeting are either vinyl or serged depending on the original vehicle spec. And don’t forget those not so optional items like kick panels, door panels, wheel wells and tail gate pieces, all of which you can procure from ACC. Note: Daytona can only be used in cut and sewn applications as it cannot be molded.
But the best thing yet about ACC is even if the kids have destroyed the interior carpeting in your nice, new, shiny SUV you don’t have to worry. ACC provides a convenient, thrifty replacement carpet kit for almost every SUV on the road today. Don’t have kids? ACC recommends you change your vehicles carpeting about every 10 years. It gives you a chance to replace that old worn out looking carpet with bright, colorful new carpet. Make your car or truck happy. And who knows what you’ll find under your old carpeting!
Tip: Keep Carpet Clean and Dry
One reason carpet gets dirty, worn and smelly is trapped moisture. You’ve got some nice rubber car floor mats or a beautiful custom set of luxury mats and everything is fine until the weather gets wet, coffee or soda get spilled or the kids drag lots of gooey mud into the car. Then the moisture from all that stuff gets trapped between the rubber on the bottom of your mats and the vehicle’s carpeting. Uh! Oh! Now the little moldies and mildews begin to grow and smell up the vehicle and degrade your carpet. So you ask yourself, is it easier to use universal absorbent car truck mats to prevent this situation or do you like to replace the carpet in your vehicle? I got the absorbent mats.
