Default Yellow F18 engine mount

Hi guys

Anyone who has ever built the Yellow F18 ( older kit ) and does not want to use a bypass has come across the problem of how to mount the engine, here is just one way.
The whole assembley is attached to the keel and also the rear former, I will also make a fiberglass pan to help deflect the heat off the engine.
Any other ideas

Thanks

Ted

This one's very similar. Ties to keel and rear main bulkhead.
