    Your making great progress. Great to see the body arrive. Must of felt like Christmas.

    Your rear gearbox mount look quite sturdy. I know there is a lot of movement and seen supports fracture on a road trip in Europe. Some movement on the mounts is necessary.

    I think its the twist and mount positions acts like a pivot point putting a lot of strain through the rear fixing points.

    Could be. They have a rubber bush inside with a stainless sleeve, you probably know the sort. Do you think that's too much/too stiff?

    The ones I saw where solid mounts so no flexibility so yours might be ok . Worth seeing how you get on with your gear linkages.

    I imagine that's entirely appropriate, if its rubber then it will have a lot more give than a poly bush for example and they are adequate for such a purpose.
