Project SR E30: Part 2 – Making Custom Motor Mounts
We start by slicing both brackets in half.
Our plan is to make one bracket fit inside the other. This way we can reposition the engine until we get it perfect, and then just tack weld them together.
Here it is mocked up. The E30 motor mount bracket seems to be sitting too low relative to the SR one.
Not to worry! We can simply pie cut the E30 bracket to make it point 15 degrees higher.
Here it is all welded up.
Before tack welding, it’s very important to double check the engine position one more time. Hydraulic jacks sag over time.
