Actually they are 7/8 x 1". One piece (each side) is 23 7/8" long, the other (each side) is 24 5/8".
I think in this picture you can see why one is longer than the other. Note the hole at the very top? That's the longer of the two. The shorter of the two goes rearward and slips under the metal channel that the package tray bolts to.
The long piece, attaches to a brace integral of the inner body with a 1/4" flat head bolt.
The inner side upholstered panels get nailed to the board facing forward. the cardboard panels within the trunk get nailed to the board facing rearward.
