Looks good to me except...

Yes, that's essential!  But unlike in your drawing, the large screw that 
holds the stabiliser foot into that hole is a large-head countersunk 
screw, not a pan-head screw, and only the very bottom part of it is 
threaded, 8-32 IIRC.  The main part is a plain shank to fit the holes 
for the front panel pivot and also the holes in the stabiliser; only the 
part protruding below the stabiliser is threaded.  It's fitted with a 
shakeproof ("star") washer along with the nut, under the stabiliser.  I 
took all the stabilisers off my racks because they're superfluous in my 
setup, and I can't remember where I put them, so I can't double-check.

That I do have, so I took it off one of the racks and you'll find some 
(poor quality, from a phone that doesn't do close focus very well) 
pictures at

and a hastily drawn sketch of the dimensions at
(NB This is a sketch, not a technical drawing, and is only approximately 
to scale).
