All looks a bit of a mess, I would think about making the rear mudguard in two parts.
Joining Either side of the rear brake.
Make a U shaped bracket to fix on the brake Boss, Over or under the brake, fix mudguards to either end of bracket.
Aluminium or stainless I think will be even more prone to cracking.
I know you want silver so going to a PVC type mudguard (black?) Would not be ideal but you wouldn’t get any more cracked mudguards.
Modifying the frames are little bit drastic, for now just make a two-part fabricated rear gaurd.
Front mudguard needs more stays as said.
Sounds like a good idea.... I note with some interest that several single speed cyclists have taken to using the front mudguards as the rear. The mudguards is mounted in the usual way, but a support has been added to the front nose of the mudguards which then attaches to the rear brake bridge..... there doesn't appear to be any notes with the photographs so I'm guessing the idea was either a Great success or dismal failure....
...interested in hearing about and seeing your solutions
