The roof hole patcher was just tube form of tar. had to scoop that out.
Now I'm trying MONO 555 construction adheasive. It's really old tube but hasn't been cracked yet but comes out like glue/gum. It's not black, grey but its seems to be hardening. I will find out as it has time to harden.

By the time this is all said and done you could have just done windshield poly once and been done with it. :D

If you want a good Poly that cures fast and hard... Lepage PL Premium

http://www.lepage.com/ProductDetail.aspx?pid=84

It's at Crappy Tire, it's at home improvement stores.

the problem i've had using anything to just fill the voids in a stock engine mount is that the plugs just squirm out after a while. the best results come from cutting out all the factory rubber, locating the center tube, and potting the mount with 80 shore self curing polyurethane.

if you're determined to use a stock mount, don't even bother trying to fill the voids with rubber. use pieces of pvc cut from plumbing pipe. i leave the slugs wider on the ends with a sort of point on one end. start the point in the slot and knock it in with a mallet.

that stiffens the stock mounts up really well. :wink:

I just hit my rubber mount with my sandblaster to rough up the surface and clean it, squirted the poly in and after 40k hooligan miles and multiple dragstrip outings (with hard launches and aired down tires) mine haven't moved at all.

Make sure you report back with your findings on MONO 555 construction adheasive- if it's cheaper it might be a nice alternative to windshield poly.

Well after a day drying it's just soft like gum. The MONO 555 construction adhesive will have to be scooped out.

It's starting to harden but its like spongy. I give it a day to dry out, if its no good this is getting removed.

Fcuk your impatient! When I filled mine I left them for a week to dry. There's a lot of 'glue' that needs to cure inside the mount. Do you have an understanding of the curing process? Just chill for a bit and give it a few days or a week to harden.

The lepage stuff in there is curing nicely. I think this one will do the trick, I'll give it 3 days to dry as I can tell inside is soft.
