Car floor carpet repair – DIY using household items

Today we'll be fixing a hole on my car's floor carpet, this is my cars floor current condition car on which I put on 40+ miles five days a week and I haven’t given much importance to this issue until now.
I've postponed this fix for a long time here as you can see that overtime my heel has managed to make a hole on the mat and through the carpet floor on my car. One option will be to take it to a shop for somebody else to replace a good portion of the flooring carpet and charge me a hundred dollars or so to do it, but today we'll be doing this fix using common items we might have laying around in our garages.

The height on my car flooring carpet seems to be 3/4" and I have a 1" thick styro foam so I’ll have cut it to the needed height.
Once I’ve cut the foam to the right height, I need to make sure the piece of foam will stay in place, ill use "great stuff" for this. Great stuff is an expandable insulation foam that hardness when dry, Ill add at the space between the foam and floor carpet.

Before the great stuff dries out you’ll be able to manage it without it getting stick to your skin, at this moment only the outside layer of the expandable foam is dry. Ill push it in the space in between to form an even surface to the floor carpet.

After it dries I’ll add some strips of gorilla tape, this tape will hold everything together and will prevent for the foam to break and spread all around. The ugly look of the tape will be hidden with the new mats we’ll set on top of the carpet.
