The name on the panels is the surname of the original owner who ordered the car.

Hi Stuart , thanks for the info !
What would you recommend for the rearmounts of the front frame ,solid or PU rubbers?
As I'll use PU rubbers between the frame and the bulkhead ,I suppose the rearmounts should be better with solid mounts , do you agree ?

The advice is usually all of the same type, so all original rubber, or all solid mounts. so if the top mounts are rubber that bit can move and flex, but the lower mounts are solid so the rear subframe legs will be flexing a little bit.

I think that because the rubber mounts allow movement that allows the the rubber to abraid/rub away the GRP, so a solid mounted subframe isn't going to do that because there will be no movement.

I only ever had standard rubber mounts on my cars so can't comment on whether there is an increase in noise and vibration.

I undestand what you mean .
But the body is polyester and you can turn the towerbolts with the correct torque and for sure it will be solid ....but for how long ....and when there 's any movemen than the soild rings will hit the grp and the worning of the holes will go very quick , I think .
I have put the frame ,just as test , once with solid mounts ....... the towerbolts with the right torque but without any front and rear mounts .....and the frame moves very easy ( like a clock pendulum) and I think that's normal because the contact frame /body is very little .
So I think that the front and rear mounts and very important and really hold the subframe in place and they should be solid mounted ,to avoid every movement , I would say the towermounts support mostly the body and have very few input in the stability of the frame ..........but I am not sure :?:
