Shock And Shock Hoop Installed

The shock hoops we built are pretty stout and not too bad looking, but we are not sure if we are fully committed to them. They are gonna need some added support towards the engine or the shock may eventually cause cracks to develop in the hoop or welds. We have contemplated building a cradle that spans the gap between the right and left shock hoop over the engine, but we are not sure if that’s too fancy for a retro build like this.
