Floor Carpet removal

So, I'm thinking of removing the carpet that lines the floor of my 01 Focus and replacing it with some Rhino liner. Currntly the carpet has quite a bit of holes in it from just wear and tear I guess and it looks crappy. The only problem that I see are the cables that I decided to run through the carpet for my system I'm not too sure off how I can run these and still make it look decent. What do you guys think. Any ideas are appreciated.

What about using a wire loom? Just to help clean things up I guess.

So you're stripping out your interior and spraying the rhino liner in there, correct?

Yep, I think that would have an interesting look. I figured it would make it easy to clean especially if I add a drain hole. All I'd have to do is spray the inside out or if I decide against the drain hole I could always just vaccuum and sand and debri would come out a lot easier than with the carpet. The main purpose though is to replace the worn carpet and add a new look. I guess if I were to just do some nice neat cable management and possibly some sort of painted conduit it wouldn't look too bad.

Good point honhon. I didn't think about the road noise. Do you guys know of a way to replace the carpet then?

a quick search of teh interwebs will turn up a bunch of aftermarket sites that make OEM style carpeting. I know I've seen some sites that have Focus carpets, and in just about any color you could want too!
