I took my time to measure them correctly, and he had the laser cutter do the rest lol. Yes they look great.
Did the body ever conform to the new mounts or did you have to compensate by adding shims to #4 and #8 mounts? Can you buy open ended shims that allow you to add/subtract shims without removing the bolt? I have an 81 C3. On the passenger side the front door gap is wider at the top above the beauty line and the hood to fender gap is very tight just at that corner. At the back of the door the gap is even top to bottom. The door gaps and hood to fender gaps are even on the driver side. So I'm hoping to correct the gaps on the passenger side by adding shims to the #5 body mount. Do you think that will fix the problem? I don't know if I will have to unbolt all the stuff just to raise that #5 area 1/4" to shove some shims in it. I will eventually replace all the body mounts but this car is my daily driver so a quick fix will have to do for now. How are the procedures for replacing the body mounts on an 81 different from your 69? What product did you use to clean your mount areas before painting them with POR-15? Thanks for any help you can offer. I really enjoyed reading your thread.-Very well written with a couple of laughs thrown in.with the body sitting loosely on the mounts I've noticed that the #1 and #4 bushings are not supporting any weight. The driver's door also doesn't line up with the striker as well as it used to. I attribute this to the body sagging and settling while the #3 and #7 mounts slowly disintegrated. Hopefully it will conform to the new mounts, but I may add a few additional shims to #4 to compensate a bit. I'm also hoping that I will have enough adjustment at the door hinges to get it to line up with the striker better. I'm open to suggestions if anyone thinks I'm crazy on this. :thumbsup:
