I would also remove the carpet from the car. I would also replace the padding under the carpet. This will let everything dry out properly. Only ~30 minutes of effort to remove carpet.

Because it's an angled face, it won't look good face down after supports are removed. Tree supports don't take much material. I use Fusion360, took 30 min to develop each version.
