I hope your tying into the lower chassis from your corner strut mounts. Especially with the package tray floor gone that rear section has very little strength left. Looking good though, keep us posted.

While it might seem like you've added a lot of strength, the strength is really in the design of the structure, not the tubing itself. Personally, I'd like to see a lot more triangles. Something like this, with the front one running to the pan sides or shifter tunnel. This thing should be great! If you get some better pics I could draw it a little better, sorry.
