Feedback on engine mount design

So I am mocking up engine mounts and would appreciate input from those with experience of such matters.

The engine is a 292 Y block, going into a '29 Highboy. The engine will be a mild build, more cruising than driving hard. The car is old school, not rat rod.

I am trying to put together mounts that blend well but provide adequate support.

Any input appreciated.

Oh, and I find it stunning that software that not long ago would have cost thousands is now available free, allowing 3D modeling like this! I can pan around the model from any angle like a walk-around. Really allows you to visualize the mounts before picking up metal.

Thanks,
Paul

I should add that I have both 3/16th and 1/4 steel plate and unless there is a specific reason not had planned to use the 1/4 inch. Hopefully this isn't total overkill?

Updated design. The engine sits too low between the rails to allow the former design.
