The carpet is molded but it is cut at the factory much larger than it needs to be. I had to cut and shape this carpet for hours to get it to fit decently. I have done carpets in more than a few vehicles before and this was very difficult. After the labor though it looks much better than what was in the car to begin with. Lay it in the sun for a few hours in the morning while you have a few cups of coffee then get to work. Working the carpet in while its cold is much more difficult, plus the sun irons out the wrinkles.
