I just did this a few days ago, slightly different caliper, but very similar. I made the mounting tab/bracket first, then bolted it up to the (already bled) caliper. I had to add some grease to the floaty mechanism pins, they were sticking a little. I then positioned the caliper on the rotor, pumped the lever a few times to get it to bite, and moved the floating stuff to about it's middle position/stroke (or I may have done that before I pressurized the brakes). Held the lever down with some electrical tape to keep the pressure, and tacked up my bracket. Worked great. I don't necessarily have clearance, the pads may be just sliiiightly touching the rotor, but they aren't providing any resistance. Wheel rolls nice and smooth, and the brake is super powerful.
