Putting in new carpet

Currently, we have no carpet. Just the metal floor. I had a good size piece of scrap in the attic. I took it down, went and took every measurement in my 6 Meter and traced it onto my carpet for cutting. I realized that cutting from the backside would be easiest so I traced it out and started cutting. Once I was finished I realized what I had done......
My carpet was now cut backwards!!!!! ARGGGGGG!!!

While measuring, I was thinking there had to be an easier way. What better place to ask then here?

Anyone have any hints on replacing the carpet in these puppies?

First, you take a piece of carpet.....

...measure verrry carefully...and cut it backwards.

Afterwards, you temporarily install it upside down to make sure it fits.

Then, you lay IT back to back with a GOOD carpet, voila!
