Cool! for those that don't recognize the design, this is the PSC side sill less version of their more familiar design. Both designs are very similar except for the side sill. Since there is little difference in light weight between the two, it is likely the plate is thicker of the sill less version. So, no side sill, no side plate. The side panels are simply bent to add a flange at the top and at the bottom.
