I got away from using these mounts in 1993 after breaking several on my old 55 chevy, now I'm building a 70's style 57 and wanted to finally make solid bell mounts for a stock appearing look.

Then the thought came to me, chop the rubber out of them and weld plates in to box them!!

I've run solid mounts on all of my builds since '93, it's barely noticeable to me anymore, it's nice to have throttle and clutch linkage stay in alignment.

There are a few ways to reinforce them, but I just wanted to make them solid. I used 1/4" plate except for the sides, 1/8" was used there just to close them up and have a finished appearance.

I hope you don't have a patent on them, because I'm gonna copy them! LOL!!! :D I'm getting tired of breaking factory style one's.
