For the Marcos IV I am building, I have the original carpet from 1974 which has never been installed and I have pretty much figured out where the bits go, but I am struggling with a couple of items. Here is what I think does the front floor, rear floor behind the seats, the rear area with the tire well, as well as the front wheel wells, and rear wheel well.  Am I correct in saying that the two longer L shaped pieces run along the inner sill beside the seats?

I am also not sure on what to do with the extended vinyl edges on some of the carpet pieces? Does that get glued to the floor and the other trim sits over top?

Thanks in advance.. and correction.. its a Marcos IV not a V.

Second post top two are door cards, next one is the rear panel behind the fuel tank and bottom is I think the vertical part where the rear subframe front mounts bolt. The vinyl extensions are the trap and glue under the rubber door seals.

Thanks Mike, That helps. I knew the door cards, the other two I was not sure.  The carpet is not a very good fir in the car, will take some work to get it looking good.   The other odd thing is that as the seats are bolted to the floor and sit on top of the carpet, there is no way to get at the parking brake adjustment once the carpets and seats are installed.  Any thoughts on and access hole or a slice in the carpet to allow access to the parking brake adjuster nuts??

Most I've seen just have a semi circle cut into the carpet in way of the adjuster's.
