Looks good. I'd personally adjust the door bars a bit for more intersecting nodes, I hate when tubes just end randomly. Like take the front door bar and have it meet the cowl bar at the top, and have the front almost-vertical spreader meet the angled bar so they intersect at the same point. Just one of those small things that I think makes a huge difference in appearance.
