  Question: what do they look like?

All side linings, regardless of model, were fastened to the body in numerous places utilizing oval head screws (32995-S15) and countersunk finishing washers (34885-S15). Many of the screws actually protruded through the rear wheel well panels. These protrusions were nipped off with a side cutter.
For comparison, the S15 finish is very similar to a modern antique bronze door knob.

  Thanks Mike, I had to make sure.

You won't find the proper S15 fasteners. To replicate them, I acquire stainless steel screws and washers. I then heat them to red hot and drop in oil to quench. Once cooled and cleaned, I clear coat them.
This finish (S15) was also used inside the vehicle on (examples) door panels and rear package tray.
On nearly every concourse I've judged, most cars sport stainless - wrong!
