Looks good.

Will that gusset on the underside clear the coilover?

I know its a horrible 5 sec ms paint drawing but you should do the gusset something like this. Also, if you extend the gusset out to the sides like i showed it will prevent the tube from ripping.

All you do is tack it on in the middle and hit it with a sledge or deadblow on either side.
