Vern,
I like what you did, had I not already built mine and had seen your earlier I might have done something like yours.

I can tell it would be extra work.

Out of concern for safety I did a lot of testing on the fasteners. Did you know that a nut plate/stainless all thread/aluminum standoff can take 50 in-lb before it plateaus? And the flat head screw plateau is at about 30 in-lb - ? I used blue loctite and torqued to 12 in-lb.
