Most of your stuff looks pretty clean, but that Panhard bar is just about the worst case of bad engineering that I've ever seen. The bar needs to be as long as possible, anchored at the very end of the housing on both ends. One mount to the housing end and the other on a bracket off the frame that bolts the bar in the vicinity of the end of the housing tube. The bar mounting points need to be parallel with the pavement with the car at ride height. The bar itself can be twisted up like a pretzel to conform to the available space, as long as the mounting points are parallel with the pavement.
