Default DIY Home Depot Wagon Cargo Tub

I have been looking for a good interior cover for my work Scion and Subaru wagons to keep the seats laid down full time. Haven't found anything, so this is an $80-$100 DIY, everything available at Home Depot.*
I recommend reading through the entire thread first, as a lot of the fitment means you need to be conscious of the overall design of your tub and you need to keep in mind what comes next before gluing and cutting pieces. You will need a large area open for several days, as you will have a lot of drying sessions for glue. An ideal layout is a 2 car garage with one side for your wagon and the other for the tub.*
Do not be afraid to use a lot of glue, we aren't building models here and reinforcement is a must. Also, if you're removing the lower backseats to keep the cargo area flat, here's a link to my quick release DIY:

Tools & Parts needed:
Tin snips
Box Cutter
Measuring Tape
Varying weights or paving stones + flat pieces of wood
Contractors sheeting or some other type of floor protection you aren't worried about getting glue on
3/8" or 1/2" Metal Grommet kit (read ahead, size depends on setup)
26' of *27" Vinyl Matting for Impreza based wagons *(23" + scrap as needed)
Large cardboard piece for template
2 Tubes of clear or black shoe goo
Mini bungee cords or similar attachment*
2-6 Gear ties (read ahead for your setup)
Clear packing tape
Optional: 1/8" and 1/2" shrink tubing + heating element
Optional: Self-Adhesive hook sided Velcro*

I hate reading all the way to the bottom to see what you're building, so here's a couple of finished product shots:

Here's pics of items you'll be looking for at Home Depot:
