Rectangular channel is the way to go. Ford would have used it but it is cheaper to use thin, spot welded, sheet metal stampings. Since this is a unibody construction, (and even for convertibles) I recommend installing this channel the whole length of both rockers, and covering with new rocker panels:

They're only $50 per PAIR, right here in Detroit.
