well i finally got around casting my mounts (exept the front one since i'm waiting on it to come in)

here's how it went

began by removing the old rubber from the dogbone and sandblasted it entirely (will paint it so it will look brand new!) in the pic notice that one hole of the dogbone is sandblasted while the other is polished... the reason for that is that i'm going to cast directly into the sandblasted part of the dogbone and cast a separate bushing that will be pressed into the polished hole. that way i can cast both bushings at the same time!






separate dogbone bushing... the pin is holding into a hole into the piece of wood to keep it centered and straight. i used hot glue to seal the bushing on the wood. i previously covered the wood with packing tape to the urethane wont stick to it!





now here is how i did the rear mount... gabe sent me a brand new 5 speed rear mount bushing. then i took it to the shop and welded braces to the pin to keep it in its offset position

then...
(the blue on the table is layout blue...)







after the mount was cooked enough i removed the carbonised rubber inside of it








then a little trip to the sandblast cabinet and a little love from a polishing wheel and voila!












the mold for the rear bushing is just a piece of cardboard with packing tape on it glued to the back of the bushing




for the trans mount i just taped cardboard with packing tape on it all around so it would hold the urethane. i took good care of sandblasting it too before filling!



here is all the mounts ready to be filled!!!






now here comes the fun part!!!!!! :D using the forsh polymer 1lb urethane kit i mixed a whole container and began pouring... i bough 3 kits thinking of not having enough. basically with ONE container you can fill all the mounts exept the trans mount (was missing 1/4 of urethane)... so yeah i had to mix another container just to fill the 1/4 left of the trans mount.... you can see what i have leftover in the pblaster cap and the rectangular tray...


























so here its is!! now i just need to wait 7 days for FULL cure. it is supposed to be installable in 2 days but it says 7 days fulll cure so I'M WAITING!!! lol


next is the front mount...

Probably a dumb question, but did you remove your motor entirely, or did you just pull the mounts and let it sit on the subframe?

the trans mount is a 5 speed one from gabe so the auto one is still in the car

same for the rear mount

i currently have a junkyard dogbone in it while i did the oem one

and i bought a new front mount to replace my oem one that i will be filling... then i'll probably sell the new mount cheap!


thanks bigbird!

good stuff :thumbup:

and wow...that used a lot less urethane than I thought it would....I wonder how much that front mount is really going to end up taking. Probably at least a pound by itself then.

thanks! yeah i guess it'll take at least 1 pound... i bought 2 pounds of 80a shore for the front so i should be ok... i'll be sure to note it in this thread for future reference!

Shit. I might do this. I would have had it done a while ago, but shipping to Canada is a bitch.
