Great progress! Where did you get the carpet that you used for the rear cargo plastic panels? Was it some sort of pre-cut pieces or did you just cut the material yourself?

Nice job on the carpet on the cargo trim.

How did you do it without the carpet curving or folding. I could never get it right when I did mine.

my girlfriend at the time did these. she did an amazingjob, only a few small bumps but hardly noticeable. wasnt her fault the carpet i used was the same carpet as the floor which had a plastic backing, had to heat it up and hot glue it down she did. however due to the heat its peeled up. so i got a different carpet that has no backing at all, its a different shade of the floor carpet but pretty close. it has no backing and can stretch so it made it much easier, had my gf at the time had this carpet the plastics would have looked even better then the ones in the car.
