Default covers for wiring on floor

Does anyone have pictures of the tin covers that run from the A pillar back to the wheel tubs? They cover the wiring and appear to cover the u channel that is formed by the floor being joined to the inner vertical panels of the body. It would seem that the underlay and carpet goes over them and held in place by the sill plates. Mine are pretty much shredded as was the floor. I am pretty sure what I have is original to the car

They are held in place by a couple of screws. Sill plates don`t attach to them.

Measure and make them. Easy job.
They are covered by the carpet and sill plates.

They level the floor beside the pinch weld and keeps the carpet from getting a wear line along the pinch weld besides protecting the rear harness.

Plus they help hold the ends of the windlace down and in place.

Watch as the screw shanks protrude below the floor near the inner rockers.
