sorry, do not have pics, they are just welded to the inside, and some extra tube welded so they can manage the weight of the car, looks like something like the letter A, but one side is 90deg to the sill
 
Well, everything is ready and waiting for: roll cage, fuel cell tank, fuel pump, seat and harness.
engine needs some little changes
gearbox will be fully disassembled and some major changes to be done.
next update will be in the autumn probably
