Please do not take offense, but why not ask this question of
1)  the tower manufacturer, and/or  2) a qualified structural
engineer.  I ask this because I worry that you plan to stray
so far from the original design that you really need to re-engineer
the structural load distribution and all.

I do not mean to suggest you not ask the question here, or that
those who post here are not qualified to comment.  I just
wondered whether you have sought out such assistance, and,
if not, I am curious why not - and, if so, what they said.

Just MY take.   ///////  K8JHR  ///////
