Hey guys!! Got my motor mounts welded up finally. I have boxed it in way past the mounts. The 53 R110 has a mustang 2 front clip installed with a 302 from the donor car as well. Just wanted to show some pics of the mounts and see what you guys figured on how it looks for strength and if I need to beef it up a little more? Sorry for the hard to see pics. I painted everything up and then got looking at it wondering if i should of beefed it up a little more. Lol! Thanks for the input.
Cheers!

Re: Need a second opinion!!

Unless I'm missing something, I don't see any rubber/urethane isolators. I'm not a fan of solid mounts (except for competition vehicles) the transmitted torque and vibration on a street vehicle is at the least annoying. I noticed a big difference in my T/A going from rubber to urethane. In any case, I feel you will be prone to cracking over time so keep a good eye on those areas. Good luck with your project !

Re: Need a second opinion!!

just my opinion, if you have achieved full penetration welds, you should be good on the mounts.
