If anyone wants to copy the cowl bracket here is a quick drawing of it. Be warned... the drawing is close, the hole locations are less close. If you were to do this I’d mark the holes on the car.

Great work on fabricating this and looks great to boot!

I went to fit my original cowl braces but due to my RHD conversion the rh one hits the master cylinder top
Considering the TCP export brace but with shipping could be an expensive option
So far only want the "Export" brace side of it but do like the look of your cowl bracket and perhaps I can make something like this then utilize heim joint linkages to not only make it adjustable but easily removable for servicing. Only having factory suspension will just have to fabricate shock tower brackets.
I can feel another project coming along "while I'm at it"
