Next step for this I think is to make a one piece rug to put back there. Not sure if I want to use rubber/plastic or fiber. It'd be awesome if someone made a durable hard rubber mat that fit over the folded rear seats...for now I'll probably find some old carpet being thrown out and cut it to fit.
I also looked at removing the seat belts however it looks like I'd have to remove a bunch of plastic to get to it. It bolts in at the bottom but you have to remove the plastic cover to get to the upper portion. I think I'll leave it in anyways so it's easy to put a seat back in should it be needed.
