The car has the entire cargo and floor area stripped out and ready for install.

The floor kit I have figured out but the cargo area is not making sense by the manufacturer picture/direction sheet.

I have contacted them and back / forth with emails and pictures, but the person assisting is a bit clueless on this product. 

I have mostly figured this out with the exception of two areas:

Green circled 3 pcs - vertical section behind the seats??

Yellow circled 1 pc - no friggin idea where this goes.

Blue circled 4 pcs rear compartment wall with dome light - OK

Red circled 2 pcs cargo floor - OK

The sides 6 pcs wheel house L + R - OK

No mistakes here - one time sticky stuff.

Imma gunna guess, from the pics I see, that the yellow circled, 3 pieces are for the three compartment doors(batt, glove box, jack storage). It would be hard to believe they would cut the vertical wall behind the seats into 3 pieces, and...those pieces don't look to be large enough to cover that area anyway....from the pics. 

The yellow circled piece...I'm with you...no clue. Perhaps it is meant to fit on top of the trans tunnel, under the storage compartment? If you look at the "diagram", it shows the locations from rear-to-front, with the yellow piece in front of what I believe to be the insulation for the storage compartment doors....just a swag....

Looking at the "Floor Kit" I also have, it looks like the vertical pieces behind the seat are in the floor kit and not in the "Cargo Kit".

So yes I agree the 3 Green pieces are for the doors, battery, glove and jack.  The original doors had no insulation on them and I just finished re-doing the assembly. I don't see how they would fit, the plastic surrounds would never go on beacuse that would make it too thick with carpet too. So those are useless. 

The yellow mystery piece I'll agree, it goes over the driveshaft tunnel under the glove box area. I'll try that and see how it goes. 

Floor Kit-
