inexpensive trunk liner

Hi All and Happy New Year.
I have been looking for an alternative to the stock trunk liner on my 280 se 4.5. The original was so brittle and dried up it just fell apart. I was at my local Riebes and found a nice cheap alternative. I know its probably not for the purists among us, but i did not want to spend nearly $200 which would be better used elsewhere on the car. It could also be used to cover and protect the original liner, which is what i did on my 280se 6 cylinder. The carpet style rolls that are readily available, i feel are very thin and don't look like they would last.
I have attached pictures to show you exactly what i bought. i managed to get two liners out of one roll. Not bad for under $20 Its very pliable, easily trimmed to fit and thick. I'm happy with the results and have a few bucks left over for coming projects.
Cheers John.

As you say not for the purists, but looks good and heavy duty to me. Makes me think I should cover my stock excellent cover with one of these.
