4X2 Rochester Carb Set-up (Grafitti Style)

Looking for help to finish my '32 5-Window Coupe Project. I have a 350 SBC Crate Motor in this car. My intake manifold is an Offenhauser set up for (4) 2bbl. Rochester Carburetors. I have EELCO linkage for the Man-a-fre style layout. My problem is two-fold: 1) I'm looking for a throttle cable bracket to mount to the carb/s which will allow me to use a Lokar throttle cable & a Lokar kickdown cable. The Lokar SRK-4000 bracket does not work. 2) I'm using "Frogg Mouth" Carb scoops with screens. The Rochesters have a "teepee" style bracket/casting used for air filter studs in the center, which do not allow the scoop screens to sit flat and the carb lip is not tall enough to allow the scoop set screw to attach to anything. I'm ready to crank the motor, but these little things are Driving Me Nutts!!!
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Your 2G can have the filter stud mount cut down flat to the top of the carb throat, if you want.

Provided you have the right size for the carb throat on the scoop, you could use polished rivets* to close the hole(s) off that are too high, then drill and thread holes lower to secure the scoops to the carbs.

*The rivets need be nothing more than loctited smooth head threaded screws cut off short. If they're aluminum, they'll polish up almost like chrome and shouldn't be too objectionable, IMHO.
