Ron Perry replied to Brian King's discussion Anyone used OPGI upholstery kit?
"Never used opgi for seat upholstery, be more inclined to buy the material and have a custom shop install it, probably will put in new foam also. As far as the carpet goes if it isn't really hammered take it out and have it professionally…"

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted by Norman Silverman on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 4 Comments


Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?
