[Healeys] Fwd: Side shift trans covers

Can’t be of much help as my side shift is long gone and I have a center shift with a fiberglass trannie cover. The carpet is a Moss unit which I cut and fit for best look and secured with 3m spray glue. I found that glue would not hold well when used over chassis saver paint so I used sheet metal screws sparingly to secure it without regard to originality.
A side note that when I ordered the Moss kit they sent me a right side, side shift kit which was weird but it got corrected quickly

Trying again, since the original post I have rebuilt the rusted flanges on both sections and they look new now. I have both uncarpeted sections set in place but with the front bellhousing section in place, where it seems to fit best, the hole for the shifter is not centered over the trans. See attached. Will this positioning work ? I can't move the main cover to the left much as it is over the drive shaft hump. Also does the front flange of the trans cover screw  onto the bellhousing cover? I believe cupped trim screws are used for the sides of the bellhsg cover but what is used for the floor flanges, self tapping type? I have two snaps on each side of the man cover for the carpet, is there one or two on the drvshaft tunnel?
I also posted this question awhile ago to another Healey forum (https://www.ahexp.com/phorum/read.php?3,205482 ) worded a little differently but have received no useful responses.

Subject: Side shift trans covers

I am about to install my two covers  after first test fitting for a couple welding repairs. My front footwells are newly carpeted and the forward section is lapping over the carpet on the sides, IS This correct?
When I try to fit that first piece alone where it would seem to be the Main cover is too far forward i.e small gap at the drive shaft tunnel. So I am thinking I need to get the big one in place regarding the tunnel and the access holes which will be pulling the front section back where it doesn't look like it would like to be ideally.
Does anyone have any photos of the two sheetmetal covers in place or being installed/removed? Or any other words of wisdom?
