Im guessing the rear body mounts for the 2.0 do not bolt up to the 1.0?? I could fab something but I really like a factory look and strength factor.

Sick paint job BTW!!

Yeah, you will really need a 2.0 rear tower. You shouldn't need shocks because the 1.0 arms use the shock risers to get the correct length. The 2.0 just uses straight shocks without the risers. Anyway, all you should need is the 2.0 tower and 2.0 rear body mounts. This will give you as close to the factory look as possible. You will probably need to cut some off of the back of the body as the 1.0 chassis is 14mm shorter. With it at the correct angle the body will be around 14mm too long. Some simple trimming and some new holes for the rear mounts should get you the look you are going for.
