Good job guys!!!!
One thing to keep in mind is also rework on the braking with ABS or bigger disks (ventilated). The contis brake department has never been great to say with a full car (4+1) and the stock configuration.
Perhaps the metal trimming, FRP work and a bigger power pack and drive train will remove and add the same weight off the car to the same dry weight. Nevertheless please do something on the braking.
The stock rear suspension layout is also excellent and you would not want to do any major work on it unless you are planning a full independent rear which will pose an equal amount of challenges considering the absence of a full chassis.
Wish you good luck and look forward to see the final product from your stable.
Do write in if you need any specific inputs/part drawings for the conti. and will be happy to help.
