Driveshaft Loop install for 72 C10

Hi All. Just finished installing a driveshaft loop on my 72. I used 2 pieces of 1x2 steel channel to anchor the Lakewood driveshaft loop. I am running Tremec and it was located as per NHRA specs...no more than 6" from the centre of the front u-joint. It was mounted between the floor pan and the frame rails. I did need to notch the channel out to allow for clearance to eliminate any vibration coming through the frame.
