Front wheel spacers for GT

I know this was discussed on the ClassicOpels mailing list, but since this site is more user-friendly in terms of posting photos, I figured I'd post this here. In an attempt to widen the narrow GT front track (it's narrower than the rear track), a good wheel spacer can help to improve the handling as well as provide better wheel and tire clearance. However, if wheel spacers thicker than 1/4" are used, then longer studs need to be utilized, and a way of attaching the spacer to the hub is a good idea, so the load-bearing studs are not over-stressed. Here's one solution I came up with, the spacers have offset holes drilled into them, and the hubs are drilled and tapped to accept countersunk bolts.
