FD 94+ rear subframe underside pics?

Does anyone have clear pictures of the differences between the 93 and 94+ rear subframe? Most of the pics online are taken from the top and don't show the differences.

I'm taking my 93 to a fab shop for a cage and was trying to see if they could maybe fab up something for the rear subframe too.

There's some really old threads about it but I don't think the pictures are being served anymore:

As far as I understand from that thread there's some extra v-shaped brackets on the 94-95 rear subframe that connect from the front part of the subframe to the rear, that are similar to triangle parts on the rear of the autoexe brace here
I've got a picture from the bottom of a 93 subframe here
Does anyone have a similar picture of a 94 or 95 rear subframe showing those v-brackets?

Thanks

From the manual

I found this in one of the manuals and I circled what I think is the extra piece, but I'm still not sure how it attaches/detaches

Rear subframe with added brace

Thanks! Yeah you've got pretty good pictures of it. The part I circled in the diagram is wrong. It looks like that diagram doesn't show it.

I attached one of your pictures with the added part circled in case anyone is following along.

Added piece vs 93 subframe

the bracket in the square is one piece and is welded at the arrow. The "ladder bar" (for lack of a better term) portion is basically a metal tube welded to the flanges in the circles (which may be better seen in the other pics)



You may be able to find more pictures in other build threads, or maybe somebody has one to take a picture of, or sell
