'65 Safari C Channel Replacement

I seem to recall there was someone around here that could provide new C-Channels for a floor replacement and for the life of me I cannot find the old thread I was looking at.

I'd like to replace my C-Channels and am hoping someone can lead me to someone that can make them for me. I have the old end channels so I can provide measurements.

If you have the basic c channel that sits on top of the floor and actually looks like a U just take a sample to your local HVAC shop and tell them how much you need. 5052 aluminum in .040 thickness is inexpensive and works very well.

You can get some square extruded aluminum and cut it in half, just find the correct width. Works great, much better than bent sheet metal. The height makes no difference.

Thanks for the responses, can the HVAC shop bend my front and end pieces? I kept my old ones so they could be matched. Just not sure of who could best perform this service for me.
