it's integrated, has an alluminum steer, and is one and an eighth. I'm not sure what the space between the wheel and top tube is but what would be the minimum distance required to have the pads engage the rim?

I would hope you reconsider this. Not only would it weaken the fork at a stressed location, not to mention that when the fiber is laid it is oriented in such a fashion to be specific to the particular stresses in a particular area, it will most like have a catastrophic failure (the fork will most likely break) and cause serious injury. Buy another fork.
