"I opened the box containing my carpet kit and found that there are quite a few firm wrinkles in the carpet, and the wrinkles are quite pronounced. I've tried laying them flat and placing a stack of books on them; I've also tried a hair dryer to soften the backing but so far they are unchanged. The photo shows the piece of carpet that goes over the gear shift lever. I'm sure this is typical so, what has worked for you guys"?

"I bought a used wallpaper steam remover from Goodwill for $5. It works perfectly for removing those wrinkles, and use it when installing over curved areas and corners".
