nice. you put any thing for a backer?
No i didnt. I try to also use Rivets as much as i can compare to screws since they are stronger and cleaner. Also you see its attach to the edge(where you see the line). that edge is much thicker/stronger

if its not twisting the case thats good but it looks like your holes might have been a bit big. three look like they are trying to pull through. last time i did this i put a backer plate to add some rigidity.

Those rivets need to be redone. They aren't far enough through the holes. I know the location was probably not helpful, but those need to be done again.

nice !

a consideration I have when mounting a handle is the case hitting my knee while I carry it.
your setup looks like you have decent knee clearance, is this so ?

a steel case has less need for a backing plate than does a aluminium case.
