A bit of help please. How should the boot floor be finished, ie carpeted or not; I believe not? Mine is, and frankly it would seem pretty naked without a bit of something in there, ie just the top of the tank, a bit of metal floor, and a spare wheel!
Am asking as am just about to fit a new fuel tank, so its time to look at the wider finish, even though on a modified car I'm not necessarily into ultimate originality.
If there are any pics anyone has or knows of, that would be helpful.

I thought all the GTVs were carpeted, with the Juniors having rubber mats?

Mine just has the 'main' carpet piece in, however, I believe there are another 3 or 4 required to finish it properly, plus a strip which goes across the back of the lights and the stainless trim strips on the opening. There should also be a bit of hardboard which goes over the spare wheel.

Many thanks, although seems a bit counter intuitive to have the higher quality item about 1/3 the cost of the other, or have I missed something?!

You're right, but I guess the rubber mats are moulded and required a custom mould to be created for a very low volume item, whereas the carpet is just generic that's cut and bound to fit.
