    D39C09CD-30A7-4896-9E03-AF5C1A73FE5F.jpeg I took the door jams off this weekend. I’m wondering what this tin screwed in is about. Was that stock or does it indicate floor pan work? Picture attached.

    Thanks!

    I believe it is factory. If you remove the panel, you should see your wiring trough under there.

    That doesn't look like the ones I have, so maybe just some homemade replacements?

    Like Gary said, it is factory and to protect wiring that runs under it. I'm 99% sure that is exactly what the original looks like in my 79. Let me know if you need me to look.

    That is factory stock. It does cover wiring and also helps finish off where the carpet and sill plate meet. Gives the carpet a rounder contour going up from the seat to the sill.
