"jute" attracts and holds moisture (and odors) like a sponge....
makes a perfect environment for promoting rust growth throughout the whole inside of the car raising the humidity level as the temp go up and down daily...
(a reason why the muscle car floors are totally shot is the jute under the carpet)

to get the most temp insulation with the bubbles,,,you want to suspend it with a tiny bit of a gap so there is a small dead air space to the metal,,,not dead tight to the steel....
basically, just spot (contact) glue it if needed so it won't shift....
cut it way to big so you can cram it in the super structure around the perimeter and it will stay put...
need more rigid,,,glue 2 layers together and suspend that....

go buy a small roll and experiment with it,,,very simple and easy to work with it....
