I was also amazed at the ghettoness of the bottom piece of the mount. It is the roughest piece of metal I have ever seen. Looks like it was mined rather than made... I'll be protecting my frame with some rubber for sure...
you can just dremel out the plate to fit the frame angle and width you need.I would not use rbbber between mount and frmae.if you are worried about scratches during insalation use some tape and then remove when your done.
