74 Hatchback Rear Seat Question

Hi, I am wondering if the rear seat had a rear cover that the carpet went on?

Thanks

The carpet was held on by the steel trim edging. I would also think that some contact spray glue would also help hold it on.

Here's a picture from another member's 73 hatchback:



When I bought the carpet set for my 74 hatchback I ordered extra carpet in bulk and unmolded as well as some edge welting for the back of the fold down seat and the hatch floor.

Hers's some pics of other 73/74 hatchback I found. Hit me up with any questions. Note the "nid panel" has carpet on the side facing there rear seat when the seat is up. I add that detail cause it looks a bit confusing. Lucky for me al my stuff was black, easier to paint.
