Hi, I don`t know what its called, I`m stripping out the old carpet and noticed this part was slightly broken.
Anyone know what its called and where I might find one. The other side piece is ok.
thanks.

See if the other side is a mirror image, if so, use it as a template to make two new pieces. Only other way I would try, Maybe, a pick a part might have one.
Cardboard make a good template maker if needed.
I took my old piece to use as a template, and still came about an inch off.
Nothing is perfect.
It would be great if someone had doghouse templates in PDF. That we can
Up size in poster/multi page to make templates.
Unfortunately it seems a big secret to those that have been able to make such a thing.

hI, yes and no.... NOT QUITE , if you look closer you`ll see its its only a few inches long and I think serves more as a locator for the engine cover to sit tight and maybe seal better round the corner.
they are not mirror image.
ps. I want a new front carpet made, does anyone have a pattern for a 1980 G10, I could prob get away with ripping out the old carpet and giving that to a trimmer, but it might come out in bits being so old.

Save yourself the headache and just buy one of these: 1978-1982 Chevrolet G10 Van Pass Area Cutpile Carpet

cheers Scrojira, normally that would be the way to go, but the prev owner in L.A. fitted custom shag pile carpet front and back. I`m going to have to source similar carpet and also similar material for the front seats.

OC's Essex carpet upgrade option looks very similar to what you've got. Get a sample from them, I bet it's pretty damn close.
