I don't want to discourage you but I see a couple of potential problems.
  • It doesn't look like you've anchored it anywhere, other than by the hoses. I'd expect that will likely cause cracking or splitting of one or both hoses eventually.
  • Either your tray is rigidly attached, which is a really bad idea, as you'll increase the odds of cracking the chassis, or you haven't considered that there will be movement between cab and tray.
I welded a bracket to mine and bolted that to the tray. I did sacrifice some filler angle but managed to get enough clearance between it and the cab to prevent problems. I also removed that metalwork around the filler itself, as it was no longer serving any purpose.
