I then mounted the sensor on the TOP of the fan facing down and drilled a hole and shaped it to fit the sensor.

The sensor now sits above the fan facing down, and is receiving at a 97% (which is very good). It also is mounted to the frame instead of a long bracket, and doesn't move around. This method also makes for a much cleaner look, as there is no brackets used to mount.
