Maybe someone on here has a car which is not completed?
In any case the brackets you need would be geometrically identical to those that Spyder can supply for fitting into their tubular frame.
The frame mounting points are the same as the Lotus frame.
One plus is that the configuration inverts the engine mounts so that they are "fail safe" if/when the rubber lets go.
You might like to consider competition engine mounts such as those described in a very recent thread, they use poly-bushes instead of the Ford mount which may not be happy with handling the extra power/torque of the Zetec.
You could make those mounts yourself as described in the thread or buy from someone like TTR
Spyder can also sell you appropriate brackets but of course postage to you would be expensive.

I am making some at the moment and will get you some photographs although I must add that it is a bit trial and error.
