Not to rain on your project and already purchased top plate but did you consider stainless instead of hot rolled steel?

I used to work for a custom machine company and we used a ton of 11 gauge stainless for different applications. Some times 10 gauge.

It's not cheap but it never rusts. Very tough. Instead of welding it to your tube steel just drill and tap then flat head 10-24 bolts to hold it down.

It will look like new forever.

Man I like spending other peoples money
