Carpet trim under console

Please check out this topic in the 67 mustang section.  Wondering if Cougars would be the same?  Don R @ WCCC says no, carpet just gets cut with a small enough hole to fit in the lower rib on the shift boot.
Thanks

My '70 (Dearborn, Oct '69 build, 4-speed, no console) has the carpet cut out just about the same size as the shifter hole in the floor.  The chrome trim ring covers up the ragged edges of the original carpet... mostly.

Dumb question are there no assembly manuals for the Cougar that would show this?

Well, I don't actually have an interior assembly manual, but there are some printed pages in my big blue mustang/couger mercury intermediate book (or whatever you call it) that show interior assembly for the ford products, and the console install procedure is in there, and shows a console, but 'nada' on showing or describing anything of a plate under the console for a cougar, or a mustang for that mater.
Thought about buying the interior manual, but after reading the posts by the fella who started this question off in the mustang section, sounds like it may not help. :)
