Removing marine carpet from center storage on Custom weld.
I've been thinking of removing the marine carpet from the center storage bin in between the seats of my Custom weld and possibly rhino lining it. Anyone ever do this? Not sure why they laid carpet in there. Have seen it on other boats like TJ's and such. Carpet never really dries out and makes whatever I do store in there rust up. I don't think I should leave the aluminum bare so I was leaning to a roll on liner. Any downsides to this or do and don't's from past experiences?
I'd probably leave the aluminium bare once cleaned up and put in something like non adhesive rubber/plastic carpet runners or floor mats. Light, inexpensive and removable for easy cleaning. Might even muffle a few rattles...
