I got mine from Clark Rubber. I can't remember how much it cost but I doubt I would have paid that much for it. Might be worth a look,

You are best to use marine carpet. It's super durable, comes in heaps of colours & is easy to work with. Doesn't seem to absorb odours either.
You can get it at a variety of places.
$69/m sounds pretty close to the mark from memory.
If you have a Clark Rubber down there you could try them. Maybe BCF or Whitworths. Even a floor coverings shop.
You can glue it down with liquid nails type adhesives & staples if gluing to wood.
I have used a Sikaflex to glue it to aluminium, but that was a flat surface.
Just put a thin bead all around the edges & a criss cross pattern over the rest. Maybe a bit extra where it might get pulled.

Bunnings sells marine carpet. You don't get the colour range, but it is much cheaper.

Hey Humff,
I got mine carpet from the skip bin at the back of a carpet shop.
May not be the best but it was cheap and I can change colours whenever I feel like it.

Or if the marine carpet is too much, try speaker box carpet. Sometimes called P.A carpet, speaker carpet, subwoofer carpet etc. I get mine from Ebay and pay about $20 for 2 metres or so. Easy to work with but i dont think it would be as durable as marine carpet.

$30 something a metre at bunnings. Th rolls are 2m wide, so 3 sqm for your money.
