Interior carpet delete? Vinyl replacement

I was curious if any of you all have removed the interior carpet and replaced it with a non-OEM cover. Such as a vinyl or what have you. Some material that was not molded for the vehicle. I want to do this in the coming up months. The 2 shops around here were kinda A-Holes when I inquired about the steering wheel (re-wrap). Both said they couldn't do that. So that being the case, it doesn't really instill any confidence in the possible consumer.

I wouldnt suggest it, it'll be a huge headache. BUT, if you really want to do it then take out your carpet that CAREFULLY. Dont tear it anywhere. Get the replacement you want to put in and do it in sections, drivers side, passengers, and rear. Take and use the carpet you removed as a template to get the right size and shape from the new one.

That's all Ive got. Im looking at having to replace my carpet this month and I'm going to get the pre-molded. Carpet jobs SUCK.
