105 has quite a lot of strength in the sills, so if you tie the cage to that, along with a side impact beam, and put cross bars (in the main hoop and under the dash) you end up with pretty good side protection (noting that is the HARDEST thing to achieve in a cage).

We can't go through the firewall into the engine bay or to the front suspension due to the historic racing regulations here :(, but is a very good idea if you are allowed.

A common mistake I've seen is where the rear legs attach at the back. Some put plates on the flat panel behind the rear seat or worse on the parcel shelf. These areas have low strength. Is much much better to take the legs to the rear wheel arches. They are a very strong part of the car. The rear shock mounts are another option if you can go through the rear panel into the boot.
