Hi All, can someone please tell me what the black trim pieces are called in the pic, and where I might get a set? Thanks

they are oval shaped semi-rigid plastic covers that snap together in a longitudinal slot on the top of the oval, to protect the following items...

ON The Drivers side --for the wiring from the dash and fuse box to the trunk light,rear tailights, licence light, convertible top motor, and power window wiring.

ON the Passenger side they are for rear antenna cable, power window wiring and rear speaker wiring.

They also support the molded carpet so it fits better. They had special expandable push in connectors(that can't be saved) that used factory holes in the top of the rocker panels to attach them --5 to 6 spots on each side as I recall.
I use sheet metal screws and washers to reinstall the plastic oval covers.

With all this said, I do not know the GM name for the covers.

They are "not reproduced" and you have to find good used ones if you need them for your car. Factory wiring on all 61 to 64's does not have any protective cover on the wiring so I think these rigid plastic oval covers are very necessary to protect this wiring and the other items I listed above.

Another thing the semi rigid oval covers go "under the carpet" not on top of the carpet.....

The picture you posted is a not a correct installation.

Ya, mine are all cracked to hell also. You can use any wire loom that will fit nicely underneath your carpet.
