Jack lift accessori

I was at Dijon France race track this weekend for an historic race. I took photos of details on the GT40 that was present. Especially I was looking how the front is stiff enough to be lifted with an hydraulic jack because on my RCR I am septical to put a jack under the front an to lift it up without bending the front aluminum bed.
I found out that on the original car the front is stiffened with square tubing that go from the front bottom up to the center cell.
Second thing I saw an intersting accessorie that the mechanic put under the the front claws to lift up the car.

On the early GT40s, there's a bar in front of the radiator grill and a pair of hooks in back. The device for the jack has the opposite arrangement. It has a bar with a pair of hooks for lifting the front and extending beyond the hooks are rods on each side that go into the hooks on the rear.
