How To Mold Carpet

I've been searching on google and on several other engines with no luck. Does anyone have a link on how to mold your own carpet for interiors?

I molded the carpet in my Intrepid.

Here's the process:

1. Let someone else drive it.
2. Don't mess with it for two to three days.
3. Realize after said time that the windows were left open and it rained somewhere in that time.

Follow this process and your carpet will be nice and moldy.

Note: This process is much harder to reverse. :(

As far as I know, most carpets are form-molded with heat and/or steam. Not sure how a DIY'er would accomplish that.

Automotive floor carpet is manufactured already molded on a form, it doesn't start out flat like house carpet.

as wire said, automotive carpet isnt produced flat like your regular carpet. If you have plans to take some carpet from a store and make your own youre not gonna have much luck.

i know that much, but i need to replace my trunk carpet and no one makes trunk carpets already molded. It would be a custom job to the tune of about $300 if i had to have it done by someone.
