Question Ceiling mounted over-the-range microwave

I am probably going to use some side mounted L brackets with some plastipaint to cushion and somewhat match. I have two sheets of veneer instead of a wall attached to ceiling mounted cabinets and not much room top add another thicker sheet of wood to anchor with many short wood screws and maybe glue for extra hold. I also don't want to permanently glue my mounting bracket ($40 replacement and sometimes they stop manufacturing the exact one especially since I am putting an uncommon microwave (1.1 Slim or low profile) to veneer. However Microwaves last 4-10 years depending on use, but 7-8 can be expected. With that being said wouldn't need a new mounting bracket if I glued the included on since the remodel is schedule for at least 5 years out and probably 10 years actual.

Flexible Nylon or metal flex support are also being considered for the rear mount substitution since I have a little over an inch limit on support spanning the entire bottom backside of the microwave. Mounting might be a bit difficult since I cant just band the entire back without blocking the rear vent or if I pull tight the nylon and staple through the vent cutout it would be easy but might sag over time with Nylon or metal flex support I would have a rig a ratchet or tightening method.

I really think just two side mounted L brackets maybe a felt slider on them into the side cabinets since a future home remodel with all new cabinets would be best. I might even add the glued mount bracket as well.
