Photos of unbent jacking points😂

I’m working to straighten the sill edge and jacking points on my clio 182 Project, but I have a problem in that I can’t find a pic anywhere (I have searched) of what the jacking points should look like before they get destroyed.

the inner piece of metal is way too long to drop straight down (at least on the fronts) so it must have had an angle on it from the factory, I’m good with beating it to shape, but I just don’t know what that shape should be.
Does anyone have pics of unbent front and rear jacking points to use as a guide or a side on diagram of what shape the rear layer of metal should be please?

Not sure how much this helps much, -the only2 pics I have when I straightened mine out.
Mine were not totally manged, but were bent over, I managed to use a sideways positioned jack to straighten them out rather than a big hammer.
The inner piece is a bit longer as you can see in the photos.

Perfect. Thanks. That confirms my suspicion that the inner sheet of metal was bent over 90degrees. I thought it must be.
After some hammer&dolly/vice/pliers action, mine now look 70% like that too. 😂😁

Mine were pretty straight after 15 years, but all those lifts break paint so cleaned them up during covid lockdowns. Even went behind the rear door cards and cleaned the inner sill up and blasted some wax in.. I ended up cleaning a few little areas about the car and sealing the full underneath to keep water away.
