Won't be needing that rear view mirror any longer!
Instead of weld on how about clamp on tie down points.
That's good to know I'll keep that design hand for future projects.That looks great. You mentioned rattles from the latch earlier. I've built several swing outs for Jeeps and used a version of this for the latch. AtoZ used to sell them, but you can make them pretty easy. Make a t-bolt, run it through a sleeve. Weld a nut to the backside of the roll bar.
