2000 model Hyundai Lantra GLS 2.0 (G4GF) factory 5 speed manual. Fully optioned. Most things work...
Well, I made an interesting discovery this morning while peeling the wax paper off my semi-solid engine mount. First - urethane sealant won't stick to wax paper. Good outcome, the flush side where I supported the mount with my impromptu form ply puck came out glossy and mostly flat except for a few small ripples in the wax paper. Nice. Second observation is I may have wasted my time. When looking at my chewed out forward steel bracket in the wagon vs the steel bracket from the coupe trans, I noticed the coupe bracket is about 10mm wider which also means the coupe mount will also be wider. This puts a temporary halt to what I'm up to. Do I now chase a coupe forward mount - and will it fit to the under brace? Do I now need the coupe under brace as well? Will it need the semi-solid treatment as well or will it be overkill? How much more of my wagon will be upgraded with coupe parts... I'm already running mostly coupe rear end and brakes
