Yeah, I glued the carpet to the 5mm ply in the garage and folded it around - glued and stapled it. Then measured out the holes in the roof bows, put rivnuts in the existing holes, and then screwed it in.

I'm thinking for the holes in the front I'll make plywood filler panels and cover them with the same carpet. Aluminum brackets will hold them in place.

Carpeted wood panels will eventually also fill the back "window" recesses after they're filled with foam or denim insulation.
