07k MotorMounts b2/b3/c4/type44/URQ

Postby Hank » Wed Feb 27, 2013 12:22 am

Alright guys, we have passed through the final revision of the 07k motor mounts for the b2/b3/c4/type44/URQ chassis. We have taken out some weight where they didn't need it, and added support where they needed it. These aluminum mounts should take 1000whp worth of abuse and not flex.

Should I anodize or keep them raw?

I prefer the raw however the option for anodizing would be nice.

Annodizing welded parts doesnt come out great. Powdercoat would be a better bet.

They will need some form of coating to stop corrosion but I figure that can be on the end users end of things.

Nice parts as ever Hank

Leave them raw and let people do what they want with them.

Have you tried different rod Haydn? 4043 is terrible in anodizing apps, but 5356 does a pretty good job. A little more gray on the heat affected zone, but not bad really.

I have Hank, as you say 5356 is Ok, but still never looks as nice as a machined part.

If it were me selling them, I'd leave them raw. Most of the people who put their hands on these will finish them the way they see fit. For the few people that may want them anodized, it seems like the upfront cost and potential 'on the shelf' time on your end may not be worth the slight profit margin on the anodization process. I've been wrong before though :)

Are motor mounts that are made like this and not with a rubber thing a more noticeable feel in the drive of the car? or is it more of a stationary thing you wouldnt notice?

Raw gets my vote, but that's just cause I would powdercoat them Aaron's favorite shade of pink that's already all over my engine bay.

Keep them raw. Makes it easier not to have to clean off the coating when you go to powder coat them
