I can supply you with a CAD drawing my shop did to laser cut the brackets.
I used stainless and it almost looks factory.

If you want it I can PM it to you.....

Also, you can use the same subframe bolts, but you will need to shave down the subframe at the top where it mounts to the frame above the shock. I think I removed 5mm from each side.

Looks pretty good, how's the carbon fiber tank cover coming?

You going to be doing an old school white with red look?
