Using peel and stick carpet tiles for hard top insulation?

I did a quick search but couldn't find anything regarding this. Has anyone tried using those peel and stick carpet tiles as cheap alternative to adding hard top insulation? I'm curious if anyone has tried this and was wondering how it looks. I know Stu featured a similar idea (reference: http://www.stu-offroad.com/body/ht/hardtop-1.htm).

If it looks trashy, I'm not interested but just an idea...

I was also considering using high temp velcro and some arctic fleece from a fabric store but I'm worried that it won't stay up very well and will just sag.

I'm also not sure how much this really helps to (i) keep the heat out in the summer or (ii) keep the cold out in the winter.

Insulation is more than a thin layer of carpet. It would be mostly cosmetic
