    I would think this repair should be fine. My only concern is the lack of support on the upper section of the frame. The lower angles you installed will help with most load stress, but I would have mirrored the repair on the upper half of the frame as well. With the thickness you installed, this may be enough.

    That was my thought too. I can always add a piece of angle at the top if I feel the need. The part I took out was about 5lbs and I replaced it with like 30lbs. 3/8” don’t sound like much but it’s a thick piece
