WeatherTech FloorLiners! I love them. I have them in my Blazer and my Wife's daily driver, so, three years ago, I decided to try them in (gasp!) our then new Z06. Ok, ok, I admit some will think they not the most attractive footwell carpet protection for a high-end car like a Z06, but, in my view, they make a hell of a lot of sense from a practical standpoint and, in this case, we're trading pretty for practical.
A FloorLiner is a flexible, plastic insert which conforms to the shape of the footwell. Digital laser measurements of interior surfaces taken by MacNeil during development of a new FloorLiner application ensure a perfect fit. A patented raw material allows a rigid core for strength while offering surface friction to the carpet, as well as tactile feel to the surface. FloorLiners have channels that carry fluids, dirt and debris, away from shoes and clothing, into a reservoir which uses additional channeling to minimize movement of fluids and dirt while driving. Once fluids become trapped in the reservoir, they are easily removed by pulling out the FloorLiner and emptying it. If it's really dirty, just turn the hose on it, scrub with some soap and water then air dry. No muss. No Fuss!
FloorLiners are very practical in a car which sees a lot of road trip miles, but perhaps not the best-looking choice, but we're not into winning "Best of Show". We're into convenience on road trips when driver and passenger will be in and out of the car frequently and not always able to be careful where they're walking nor able to clean their shoes all the time. In those situations, the WeatherTech FloorLiner is a godsend. At the end of a long day driving, if the floors are dirty; simply pull out the FloorLiner, shake the dirt off it and pop it back in.
For C6es, they come in black, tan and gray, so they look can look good with most interior colors. Our car is black, so we selected Weathertech PN 441841 and they look awesome! We installed them right after we bought the car. We've got almost 27940 miles on it in three years and, not only do the FloorLiners still look good, but have lived up to their reputation of practicality. Durability? Heck, yeah. FloorLiners are tough and long-lasting. Not only is the set in our '12 Z06 in good shape, I have a them in a Blazer ZR2 which were installed in 2002. With the abuse they get in an off-road-capable vehicle and they still look pretty good. The set in the Wife's car has been there seven years and they're still looking ok, too. I just wish MacNeil, the company which makes WeatherTech products, had FloorLiners for C5s. If they did, I'd put a set in our '04 too.
FloorLiners are available for both C6 and C7 (PN 445891) in black and tan. For more info, contact MacNeil Automotive Products, 841 Remington Blvd Bolingbrook, IL 60440 800.441.6287 www.weathertech.com
