They sort of resemble the aluminum stock that came with my MKIII kit, to mount the kit-supplied radiator fan to the stock radiator shroud. Although mine had a bend at each end. Maybe the Coupe is a bit different.
I ran out to the garage and snapped these for you, for reference:
Although they did not fit 100% they act to support the lower wheel house alu' on the front wheel.With the fit of the lower alu' panel this steel brace and the locator pin it realy gives the front of the lower rocker a good deal of strength.
That's where I fit them at least,worked well.
If we weren\'t all crazy we\'d all go insane
Bill is correct, they are to support the rocker panel. I will try and get a part number for you and description for you tommorrow, mabey even a description fronm the manual if it's there............Steven

If those steel peices are for the rockers. I don't have the peices that are supposed to be the "B" pillar. Anyone have any photos of those peices. I thought the steel peices were them. The manual is vauge here . It shows you where to cut the slot and the top of the peice but there is no photo or part number.
I do not know what they are or where they go. I did find a place to where they look good to me.

Found them in the bottom of the long box with the side windows and frames. I kind of have them mounted for the time being. I am guessing that the window frame will rest on them with the weatherseal in between.
Thanks, all. Bluehorse . . . I think you got it!
BTW . . . I am not going to use my B pillar pieces (the powdercoated, #1-shaped steel things) . . . if anyone would like mine, I'll send them along.
