Here is a pic of underneath my car carpet (civic vti 1999). I was thinking of getting rid of the carpet however I noticed a black rubber type material which gives off it’s own smell. I notice this material also exists in the boot.
I was actually wanting to remove the carpet because divers hold on to smells and I don’t like smells. I guess if I remove the carpet I will have to live with this material. What is it and what is it’s purpose, is there a way I can remove it and if I do so, will there be a problem?
A friend looked at the material in the boot and said it is to do with chassis protection, any truth in that?
