Ok i think you need ti ditch the angular supports in the back and add 2 vertical supports both front an back leaving a 36" span in the center for the sump. Tie the additional vertical supports to the added cross bracing. You also need to add 2x4 or 2x6 supports for the horizontal frame. I would skip the 4x4 posts and just go with a mix od 2x4 and 2x6 construction. The plywood you wrap the stand with will prevent racking making the angular bracing unnecessary. Ill take a pic of one im currently building to show you.

This is just to show what im thinking. Obviously you'll alter to leave 36" clear in the center for the sump...
