I may do this on a future build if my wife lets me do another one.. for extra support, where you weld the tubing to the housing. I would drill both top and bottom to the i.d. and tap in some solid rod. Then you can weld tubing to the outside and the rod to the inside of the shaft housing. Locks it all together beautifully then :-D
