when the floor is in the lower position. I bought a hollow noodle 3.5" in diameter, trimmed it to 35.25" long and cut a notch to accommodate the seat hinge bracket. A bread knife worked great to cut it cleanly and the noodle is NOT nearly as luminous as it appears in the photo. Earlier I posted on another thread that pipe insulation works to fill the gap between the seat and the floor, the second photo shows this...

This setup would work fine as a permanent solution in practice, if you found a floor that fit right in one position it wouldn't in the other and personally I want the option of using either...I wish Ford had got it right in the first place like most of the car...if the swim noodle were black that would definitely help aesthetically ;-)

looks like this is another great option, and cheap! I would bet black roll bar padding would also be a good option. I doubt you could find swim noodles in black or dark grey.

I ended up doing this to my car, I got sick of having things slide under the seats. I also picked up a roll of non-slip material (usually used in drawers etc.) to keep stuff from sliding around and help protect the paint:

I'd be very careful using the drawer liner stuff. If it sits long enough it will meld into the paint and will leave permanent markings.
