My unrestored 65 Caravette has the full VW supplied hardboard cover shaped to fit screwed down with 10 screws n alloy cup washers..8 long n 2 shortened.
The short ones go either side of the latch plate on the over engine panel.

I could not understsnd why but whereas the other ones along the front screw into the void of the strengthening box section ..those two go through the panel and WOULD pierce you rear light loom.

Neither of mine have any carpet..
I have however cut some 19mm closed cell foam to fit onto the top of the 64 Caravette hardboard under the drawers for sound insulation.

But you have a WT Spaceway?
I can see the logic of having carpet to sit the spare wheel on top of to stop drumming.
I do NOT know if anyone else had carpet in that type of cupboard..
It may have been a PO addition...

Who has a Spaceway with carpet...?
