Does putting it up on the forum infringe any copyrights? Just asking. ???
My original post was regarding the Powerflex drg.(PDF) which has a copywrite at the bottom. Just asking a question really as i have no idea. :y

In which case, I apologise for misinterpreting it  :-[ :y

After a year, is this a successful mod that allows enough movement when needed?

Still attached, no faults or comments received during MOTs.
Handles still very well, very fun and predictable to drive during winter  8)

I have not took any closer look for awhile, but I try to remember to take some pics of this at the same time when I replace gearbox (when I got time to do it  ::) ).
Maybe I replace LSDiff oils at the same time if I decide to drop the subframe for closer look   :y

I really need to get hold of a spare set of those triangle plates and clean and paint them ready for the project car.

Or you could repair your own


The old parts in a homemade jig:





Filled with about 3 of urethane:





And the finished part before I bolted it back on the car:





The jig was made out of scrap, but bolts together to allow the repair of two mounts simultaneously. I would add some black pigment to the material, and blast the metal components if I cared about appearances ;)
