So, the louvers there, were they just part of the material scavenged from something else? Or were these custom made?

So, it might be wise to reinforce the spring shackles. I imagine this will see some rough use (cant imagine why!  ) that would suck if they folded over. Maybe is just me, but Id probably over beef things up haha

yup, square tube welded inside the shackle as a spacer... Reduces the length that can bend. It's all about leverage.
