Well from the pic I'd say I've seen better look worse. Not bad from this view, how's it look underneath?

On painting the brackets sounds like you've got it covered..... I'll just throw in my :2cents: ... be sure to use a good grade of paint I like Krylon's "Rust Tuff" (it's not very expensive), for most brackets we use semi-flat. But use any color that fits your theme. Also be sure to the parts or clean of any grease, it may be worth it to you to purchase a can of "wax & grease remover" to clean the parts prior to painting.
