Clearly, only 4 grommets are needed, I wound up spacing mine too closely together. *Keep the inner grommets farther from the outer; the bungee cords will then keep the panel tight and flat:*
Here is the way I secured the flaps with gear ties; on the backs of the door flaps I also wound them around the seat retainer loops:*
For the rear flap, I tried hooking up the ties to the pistons. This didn't work for me, but it may for you. In the end, I wound up backing this rear side area with velcro and stretching the flap as much as possible:*
For appearance, I colored all the grommets with a sharpie. Plasti-dip may work too, but the sharpie,is holding on surprisingly well. I also glued on a reinforcing piece of scrap where the tub hits the top of the back seat:*
Cut an opening for the rear light and any anchor points you need and you're good to go:*


Alternate option:
You can remove the hatch flap altogether or tuck it in to keep a cupped edge to the floor. Use scrap to make a panel, then Velcro it directly to the hatch door:
