    I would add frame connectors to stiffen the whole body. Go to your local steel supply and buy a 20' stick of 2x2 square tube ( wall thickness is your choice but, 1/8 to 3/16 is good). I like to weld it up high enough to pop through the rear footwell so I can weld it to the floor as well as the front and rear subframes. The E-brake cable can be routed through the tube if necessary. You will probable have enough tube to do 2 cars.
