    Default Uprated engine mounts

    had my car on the ramps today, so thought i would check the engine mounts on it, as thats what i do lol..and found the oe front and rear ones were splitting and very very soft, my car has done 68k now, so not that high really, so i made some uprated ones for it, and am very happy with the results, over the standard ones, makes the car feel a lot tighter and more responsive, here are some pics of the new bushes and brackets powder coated


    top pics shows the standard bush starting to split

    just used one of our fast road six shooter bushes, machined an aluminium ring to fit it, ally spacers inserted for the correct width and blast the old brackets, and powder coat them

    Nice one, as roswell said, how much would the damage be if you decided to produce some?
