Roll cage pictures for 65 Mustang

Hey Everyone.

I am posting this around on a few boards, cause I really haven't seen what I am looking for just yet. I am working on a roll cage for a 65 Mustang Coupe, and trying to keep the rear seat intact for aesthetics only, but still have to pass NASA and SCCA tech. And if I remember correctly neither allow bent rear supports for the main hoop. If I attach to the horizontal portion of the main hoop, near the corners and pass the rear supports just over the rear seat back, the end winds up too far to the rear of the trunk. If I attach the rear supports to the vertical portion of the main hoop, near the corners, I have to angle the rear supports into the center to clear the wheel wells, and I think I go past the 75 degree limit (main hoop to rear brace, when viewed from above. Does anyone have pictures that they could share? or other ideas to preserve the rear seat?
