I think most of them go to a sheet metal shop to have them fab to whatever you specify. Heat and air-conditioning shops will often do sheet metal fabrication so I would check with them also.

The "C" channel no longer exists.

But, the current straight channel slips over the plywood edge and still allos the interior and exterior metal fastened to it. It's many times superior to the "C" channel.

But, the front and rear channels no longer match the contour of the older trailers. It must be cut in several places and then welded back together. Not an easy task.
