Trunk Mat

Recently installed a trunk mat and spare tire cover for mt 65 GTO but the edges of the trunk mat keep rolling up. Wondering how to keep it in the proper position.

Put it on a flat clean surface face down with some thing on top of it for a day or over night should do it!

I recently had the same problem with my '66. The repo mats are thiner than the originals and want to roll like you said. I got some thin black rubber matting at Home Depot and cut a piece about six inches wide and the width of the mat and glued it to the bottom to stiffen and give it more weight. I did the front and rear sides. Worked like a charm.
