Transmission crossmember for 350 swap

For all you who have done the swap how did you do your tranny crossmember? My drivetrain is an 81 sbc, SM465 granny gear, and the np205. My idea was a piece of 3" channel running frame rail to frame rail and boltin it down to that. I'm just curious what you guy's did. I'm trying to get away from reusing the skid plate.

When I've got money I've got no time, when I've got the time I've got no money!

I am doing a similar conversion but planning to use the skid plate. Curious why you chose to go with the SM465 transmission. I am really strugglign with the transmission decision process and considering the SM465 but concerned about highway engine speeds.
