Here is the cut list so far. I'll add to it as I go but this is a good start
I'm putting this out there but please double check and "dry' fit before welding together.
If you find any mistakes please let me know ASAP:

Can you show/explain this in more detail?

Hope this helped.
Ok, thanks for the pic, your captions made things incredibly easy.

Also, are you using converted kegs or kettles? A couple discreetly drilled holes in the lower keg skirt could give the gas some place to go if you are going the keggle route. Thanks for providing the dimensions and cut sheet also, very helpful to those of us in the planning phase

Here is a rendering of what I'm talking about. The standoffs will help protect against scratching the paint when moving the kettles around.

The stand-offs can be cantilevered further in and thus eliminating the large diagonal pieces.

Yeah, that would work except I already welded the diagonals in.

But without the diagonals, he could not mount the wind guard and thus, not able to mount the BG14

I actually use a 3D program called Solidworks. I haven't modeled the burners or castors but here is a rendering of the stand:
