Thumbs up Best way to mount hydraulic ebrake firmly? (pics)

This is my current set up. THe staging brake is held up with right two mounted flat bars. no mounts on the left side
The flat bars flex really easily with slight pull of handle.
What would be the best way to mount this firmly, no movement? either welded or bolted.
My thought is to make small brackets and weld them under each flat bar (pics attached). The down side is that i won't be able to reposition the staging brake later on.
I told a guy at Vildini about my thought. He said it'll be OK for now, but in the future, the base of staging brake (aluminum) may crack after countless times of pulling the handle. So i have to come up with something better than the current set up.

Post your suggestions please

I hope you have a 3rd mounting point up front otherwise you have far too much of a torque arm on that back bolt. You're going to rip it out...

actually i don't
i'm thinking about mounting a flat bar across the front two mounting points on the brake. And cutting the bolted part on the shifter ring and weld them on the tranny tunnel.
Do you think this will be firm and not cracking the aluminum?
