I suggest that you may want to beef up the weld of the clutch cable tube to the 
rear bulkhead, where it exits the tunnel. That's a fairly common weak point 
where all the cable tension comes to roost, and if that weld breaks you lose 
your clutch. It may be helpful to slip a nicely-fitting washer over the tube 
and up against the bulkhead and then weld the tube to the washer and the washer 
to the bulkhead. That will help make this connection as strong as possible.

Otherwise this looks really nice.  ;-)
