Question Front couch/bed

First time on forum. I am putting my 1971 trade wind back to the original configuration after 20 years of a redesign. My problem is after 20 years of storing parts things seem to disappear and I don't rember what the part looks like anymore. I was wonder if anyone may have a picture of the fitting that attaches the aluminum slide rails to front wall. There are three holes on each side of the front wall but no holes in the rails. Any help help would be appreciated

Sorry you've had no responses yet; I'm not sure why questions go unanswered sometimes.

I'm pretty sure the U-shaped channel frame was not anchored to the front wall but only by threaded pipe fittings screwed to the floor. You may be able to see on the wall where the frame corners rubbed. Not sure what would have been screwed to the wall that low. I still have all my (soon-to-be-thrown-away) parts in my shop, so I'll check this and post later.

Hope this helps,
