Ill try and post some tommorow..The braces are round bars that are bolted on the inner fenders and pass ontop of the valve covers and bolt to a ledge on the fire wall right behind the dizzy and make a V shape over the motor..Im almost positive thier not original but just thought i ask since i dont know why somebody would add them
