Dude-those brackets are "cake".
Get a piece of 1/8"x1/2" aluminum stock ad have at it. Do the front ones first--bend a 90 about 1/2" from one end, drill a 13/64" hole in the tab you've just created, bend another 90 about 3/4" up from there, leave the ends a little long. Screw the loosely to the holes in the throttle body where the original cover was, lay the new cover on there, get it centered and straight, manuever the brackets to the holes in the cover, mark them with a Sharpie, and drill another 13/64" hole. Back ones are a little tougher, but steps are basically the same. I ended up tying the back ones together to stiffen them up a little-the way I mounted the PS one, it ended up being kind of long and floppy.

I think that would look awesome under my old hood with some toreador paint on it. Well done!

Also redid the intake tube again-the silver didn't hold-up. I used some Rustoleum Spray-on bedliner on it. Before I srayed it, I put on a die-cut Ford oval, them sprayed over it. Gives it a subtle but custom touch.
