If yas look closely you can see that the 2x2 barely hangs down below the level of the pan itself... and in fact they are above the bottom of the front beam by about half an inch... so these rails aren't really the lowest thing on the car, and I think they do a pretty damned good job of stiffening the car. I weight 280 and I can stand on the rails without ANY deflection. ANY! :)

I still plan on doing the reinforcements that VW did in the back seat area, and since I got a whole front vert clip with my windshield I will be grafting the footwell area plates into my car... but I think I will skip the 'rounded corner' stuff in the door openings... prolly overkill.
