Q & A

What's in the Box

If you are building a lightweight car like a "T" or an "A", mounting the body may present a problem. These neat expanding rubber universal body mounts allow you to drill a 3/4" hole in the top of the frame, insert a 3/8" coarse bolt, tighten, then the body is mounted.

Not recommended for cars newer than 1934.

Great price but as noted in the descript

October 26, 2014
The description indicates these are for small T-Bucket types of applications but I used on 38 Chevy PU cab to better isolate the cab from the frame. 3/4' frame hole size is great for most applications that don't already have larger holes. I think the mounts work fine but I ended up adding additonal pad around the actual mount pad as the 1-1/4" surface area is pretty small for any body mount.
Pros:
  • work as described
  • Great price
Cons:
  • small so you might have to uses extra mounts
Yes, I recommend this product.

Does the job

September 18, 2014
This product works very well for what it is designed to do. I would suggest some extras on hand. I have had some that the nut inside has broken lose from the rubber and did not expand to tighten down. Over all a good product and I will continue to use them on other progects.
Pros:
  • Easy To Use
Yes, I recommend this product.

Looks like a good quality part

May 18, 2014
I bought these body mounts to use on my 31 coupe. They are advertised to be used in a blind spot that you cannot get to on the back side. I had intended to use them even in places where I could get to the back side to install a fastener. They look like they should work OK. From the picture, I thought that they were much larger than they turned out to be. I think that they will still work but I may have to use regular body mounts in a few places instead.
Pros:
  • good alternative when you can't put a nut on.
Cons:
  • size is small
Yes, I recommend this product.

Best of the body mounting techniques

December 04, 2011
Will be used to mount Bucket body to frame. May consider using some for mounting the gas tank as well, as it would not only provide a mounting method, but also the cushioning effect as explained in the Assembly Manual.
Pros:
  • Replaceable if needed
Yes, I recommend this product.
