    You should just be able to goto a local stereo shop and buy the carpet from them. Or just call them and ask where to buy the carpet locally !!!

    i agree.

    its not too thick, and cuts easy. it smells for a week or so, though.

    EDIT: 8 bucks a roll.

    yeah, the past four boxes I built for people have been covered in walmart carpet- holds up pretty good- but yeah def. stinks for a week or two- Just FYI contact cement worked great for holding the carpet to the box- Let's see some pictures when you're done
