Looks good, nice and clean :thumbsup:. To answer the question about doinf a write up with pics, I had thought about it, just never had the time to actually put it all together. I installed a full trunk floor in my 69 Charger last year (still the same procedure as a Chevelle trunk). It was involved, but not all that difficult. Here are some before, during, and after pics:
The 70 we had we didn't notice it, a guy came over to buy it and pointed it out, this 70 was a really solid car no rust on it, and the welds along the wheel well were okay, but it still pulled apart, if you look at how there designed you can see how this might happen.
He said he's seen a few of them do it.
Yours looks really solid how you fixed it, it just a little insurance, He ran a ten inch drag radial with 373 gears, and still pulled it apart, they just kind of spread out in that area.
Years ago guys would put some heavy stuff in there trunks for weight in the winter, and I think thats part of this type of problem also.
