carpet stretch

I have a 57 chevy and need to stretch the front carpet 3" from side to side, will my carpet handle that?

Home carpet is made with a canvas/woven like material that has some give, your using auto carpet which, at least the newer cars, is more of a molded product so I'm going to say it's not going to have much give!

Maybe more detail on the carpet would help, new old, type of backing!

How do you plan on keeping it from raising in the air at the hump?
