I don't have pictures right now, but the 90 degree corner is made with two pieces cut at 45 with a gusset underneath.  The ends by the door is also cut at a 45. on the top.

This is the rear corner of my M2A1 David (can't help on the door!). I don't know if they're the same as an M3. They're welded, plug-welded and bolted together. I have another front of a perimeter rail and the corners on that have an additional gusset bolted over the top of this configuration but I don't know if the rears are like that.

Just so you know, mine is a 1942 M3 made by Diamond T, that is all original.  Thank you Darth Kitten for sharing the picture for me.
