Looking good.....
Spot welds can pop by a sudden shock (sometimes!), so you would see stitch welds here and there to keep the cab from falling apart in case of a bad accident, The stitch weld on the bracket is a kind of safety overkill to prevent the spare tire getting launched out of the trunk like a UFO!

I also added some stitch welds where the new trunk floor and trunk extensions meet. These were places where I noted factory stitch welds where the trunk floor extension tab overlapped the main floor. Original welds looked very sloppy under the body seam sealer!
