 It holds the rubber in place that the trap door bracket clamps into when in the up position. 
 

I think I’ve got it figured out. The one pictured is the worst of the two..but I could use it if needed

Hey Trevynd did you ever fabricate the trunk brackets?

Just remember John Wick didn’t kill all those people for a random car. It was a Mustang

I have the same "todo" and as I will replace the trunk floor prolly somewhere end of this year I'll have to make mine too.
I have already thought about it and bought 1.5mm sheet for that.

There's no rocket science involved to fab them, aside ensuring you are cutting the metal straight for a good look, 
the tricky part is only the second fold. So if of any help, may you'd go for it, here's how i plan to make mine...  I'd look or buy for a piece of metal that is as thick as the space between two folds and wide as the space between the two side. A piece of hard oak wood would do the trick too if you can't find a piece of metal.
 

Once you have your "star" cut flat and your holes for the spot welds done. You can put that metal in a vice with your "star" or (using a metal breaker) make both first 90 deg folds.
The help metal then squeezed/clamped  between the two, you can then with a piece of wood push them toward center and finish the last degrees with a hammer. (That's where having a metal piece behind would help to get a sharp line). The edge of the block acting as a metal breaker.

Here a quick view of my "plan" :D
Where, in green is an extra length, that will help to push in the second fold and help correct visually any misalignment after it's folded . Disc/cut after each of the too  folds.

Hope it helps

I can make these easily, but need s sample to work from. I had a set, but have been unable to locate them in my searches over the last couple months. Whoever sends me one to work from, I'll make you a new set and return the sample.
