HD Ute floor

Hi all, I'm not able to become a member yet but I'd like some opinions {yes, i know all about opinions !!} I have a HD holden barn find ute, it was left for years without screens and windows, at some stage, water got into it and completely rested out the floors, front and back to the fuel tank, and up to the seam in the firewall, both the top part of the firewall and behind the seat wall section are rust free. I was lucky enough to stumble onto a guy that had a complete HR Premier wagon floor in great condition, including the bottom of the pillars and sills intact. I'm in the process of unpicking the floor now. My question is, I have a rotisserie I want to put the ute on, the rest of the car is almost rust free, including rust free doors and guards. With the floor cut out, should I weld braces between the A and B pillars before putting the ute on the rotisserie ? The A and B pillars are in great shape, the top firewall and dash {no rust in the plenums either} are great and the roof and rear wall are also rust free, to me it seems like this is a fairly strong box shape and still strong, what do you guys think ?

For the sake of a couple of braces, I'd say yeah do it. It won't hurt, and too late if you cut the floor out and it bends (if not braced).
Pics are always welcome too..
