Built a headache rack

Needed somewhere to mount my lights an I'm always hauling crap so I built this. Took it in to get sandblasted today and going to paint it silver. I also have 2 CB antenna mounts welded on but I took the pics first without thinking. 1/8" 2x2" square tube and 2x2" angle iron for the base with 1/2x2" vertical bars and welded together with my old Lincoln AC/DC welder with all 3/32" 6013 rod.

If you look close on the top pic (looking at it from the back) at the right piece of angle iron coming back at the bottom of that you can see a stud I welded on. There are 4 of these, 2 on each side that go through holes I drilled in the box rail and I put nuts on them to hold it down. The 2 front ones are a real ***** to get on and tight with my plastic box liner but it can be done.
