Looking to weld these in Saturday and I think I'm being stupid with some of these I know where a few go but others I just can't seem to work out... Any help is highly appreciated.

I've used this thread but some of the pictures aren't very clear

Anybody know where these go? Cheers

Nick that look a much more appropriate place for those plates but everywhere else seems to mount them in a different area... Like here:

I like the idea of having plates there, mine has been poorly welded in that area which has weekend it so I might just weld them there and get a couple more plates, thanks again guys really appreciate it.
