I would have the same concern as you regarding if the 8" adaptor was not stiff enough and increased vibration between the tripod and head unit. How thick are the walls of the hollow steel section?
Note that if you re-use the OEM LX80 tripod spreader rod the threads are metric.
The part of your assembly which may have a problem , I think, would be the bottom attachment point where you are saying you are going to secure it with only the 1/2" rod and nut. It might need more than this.
