That's just awesome Luke!
Are you using a Casady Tandem bar?

Mint Super Polaris I bought off craigslist a couple months ago and added an iOptron Gotonova kit to. No mods of the mount required whatsoever - just the gotonova plastic motor covers.
Here it is with my also recently acquired TV NP101is, which also required no modifications to either the mount or the rings holding the OTA.
Looks like it came from a store like that, in fact.

My mount was featured in the column - "Gleanings for ATM's" in the October, 1983 issue of SKY & TELESCOPE. Unfortunately the mount was sold years ago, but I still have the scope. In truth this setup was a bit cumbersome in this size. Someday I would like to make a smaller version, perhaps suitable for something like an AstroTech 66. In an updated version a smaller box could be attached to a tripod.
Here is a picture of the original mount I made before painting.

Was it adjustable for proper polar alignment??
