E-type S1, S1.5, or S2 to Ford V8 Motor Mount pictures?

I just pulled the 302 V8 from my E-type and was shocked to see the way the engine was mounted. This was a home-fabbed type job that I prefer not to reuse. I posted pics of both sides of what I currently have.

I have found numerous pictures of Ford V8's swapped into E-types, but no detailed pics of the actual motor mounts.

If you have any pics of the V8 swap motor mounts can you post them so I can get ideas on how to fab my own mounts?

Thanks for any responses.

Other than rough execution, the mount design is reasonably good on a very basic level. Coming off the head accessory bosses gives excellent torque control and height adjustability. Provided you use cushions that give adequate vibration isolation and load support it is a good basic design.

That's the engine side of the mount.
Mounting to the front frame rails I believe is the challenge.
Sorry I don't have any experience with that.
Maybe duplicate something similar to the original Jaguar engine mount?
