    Here is where the carbs are at right now:

    The Pine Sol stripped the finish off of the brackets that hold the carburetors together.
    Do I need to swap them over for the painted brackets from my other carbs or is corrosion not an issue?

    they will surface oxidize like any other aluminum but it isnt structural. if you are particular about how your carb brackets look then by all means swap them but it wont affect performance in any way.

    You have already put more effort in than I normally do :-p Exterior gets shot with carb cleaner once and ragged off...the inside is what matters.

    The carb brackets are steel as far as I can tell. I'll change them out. The carbs are spotless right now and I'm going to spray everything with carb cleaner and wipe/brush it out prior to assembly.

    Quick tip for carbs, and Japanese bikes in general, get a set of JIS screwdrivers. There are no Phillips screws on Japanese bike, they are all JIS. The slots are different, and a Phillips screwdriver makes it muuuuch easier to strip them. Try a set of JIS ones and you'll be amazed at the difference.
