Under the in-progress rack is a small strip of wax paper - epoxy will not stick to wax paper, so there's no fear of gluing your project to the bench if you lay down a sheet on your work surface first.
If brass tubing is deemed more realistic than brass rod, I'd recommend inserting the corresponding-size brass rod into it to prevent kinks when bending it and 'fish-mouthing' the ends with a round file and/or Dremel for a more finished appearance.
www.berrienbuggy.com and www.larrysoffroad.com are a couple of sites I'd recommend for good reference pics of bare frames
