make sure you have everything screwed down and secured. A double layer of 3/4 plywood is a good idea if you can afford it with screws into the 2x6. Dont forget to trim it out! you dont want it to look like a red neck built it. Not that there is anything wrong with being a red neck

if you have 2 pieces of 3/4" plywood, just sit them on top of the stand. you don't need 2 x 6 lumber in the equation at all.

Well, I finished that part of the stand top today and I took the 2x6 top and boxed it with two sheets of 3/4 ply. It is unbelievably strong. Will post my pics via photo bucket with start to finish pics soon.

You will be fine.....If you want to Stack another 75 or 2 on top of your current you will be fine too. MOST DIY Stands are way overbuilt. From what you have told us yours could support a car.
