They're the same mounts Mike just got. 


I don't have a front from them - it's custom.


Only reason I'm selling them is because they need to be sent out for a warranty - i can't exactly remove my mounts and ship them out without having other mounts to hold the motor.  So i'm ordering another set.


Got a faulty bracket that caused it, the design has been altered since mine were purchased.  So i've got an old set.

Until you decide what that is....



^^ You could build a sturdy shelf and store it over top of Kennys car...

Building the shelf, figuring out how to get it up there and back down will keep you be busy for a while.

Or go the classic route:

Progress.

Even drip by drip progess is good.

About every 5th day I water house plants or freshen up the level of my aquarium via a 2 gallon bucket that is filled 1 drip at a time from a faucet I'm too lazy to fix.

Coil-overs removed and boxed last weekend, shipped this week.

Resin arrived today.


Now that i've been through the rough trial and error ways that is dealing with this stuff... I can put the supporting patches on the back side of the bumper (to be filled with fiberglass filler) and maybe get off my ass and make some exclusive one off parts again.

Nearly a year later.... I'm about ready to pull the motor again.

Between June and November 2015 - I stripped the entire underside of the car and coated it with POR15.  Replaced all of the bushings, balljoints, damaged bolts and wheel bearings.


After years of complaining, I recently got around to fixing the radio harness as well as the ignition harness.  Hardwired my gauges and properly wired up the JDM climate control.  Painted the dash support and installed some minor things such as a spoon shift knob and rearview mirror.


These past 4 months are the longest the car has ever been outside without the cover.  I feel like i've neglected it, despite doing some odd work here and there.


Since putting the fuel tank back, i've had a fuel smell.  Lines arrived to try and narrow down the source.  Main reason i've not had a cover on.

Custom fuel lines made - need to change one fitting due to not seating 100% (hopefully not damaging anything as it sits)

Motor is back in the car, balance shafts deleted.

Digital climate control finished (minus air mix motor installation) - but everything works as it should

Need to swap out the fuel pressure regulator for a new one i have and reinstall the JRSC - then go back for a retune.  Tires are needed as well....4 years on these is long enough

Can't wait to see what this does on the new tune.

Wife says in addition to finishing roosters room, we have to have a shed built or delivered, and the hardwood floors need to be refinished before I can work on the prelude again...
