So your cage Jess  it's tight against the b pillars do you can stitch weld it directly to it ? I have seen another cage in a manta requiring a gusset plate  between the A and B pillars to the cage

Some cages don't fit as well or as tightly as others. I've seen them where you could put your fingers between the main hoop and the B pillars (which is a horrible idea). Some have been fitted too low onto pedastals also so there was room above the top bar of the main hoop/side bars etc. Which shouldn't pass scrutineering for a rally/race car and is a bad way of putting one in all round.

I can get you a measurement later but on my coupe the cage is touching the B pillar around window height and is stitch welded to it there and on windscreen pillars and sides of roof

I’ve taken the following measurements;

Just above transmission tunnel from inside door jam to inside door jam is 1360mm. This is about half way up the vertical section as I have a larger transmission tunnel. 
 

Inside door jam to inside door jam tight up under the dashboard crossmember is 1350mm. The dashboard is not currently fitted. 
 

Bottom of A Pillar to bottom of A Pillar where it is welded to dashboard crossmember is 1320mm.

 

Top of A Pillar to top of A Pillar is 1030mm. This is along top edge of windscreen. 
 

Happy to help if you need anything else.

It does not sit against the B pillar as such, but is tight to sides, not 100% following the profile, but close. However, it does not weld to but has bolt lugs for the B pillars. Added best pic I have showing it installed mate.

I've checked 3 shells i have in and going infront of the rear seat crossmember straight across just above the tunnel i get 1372mm on them.
