'36 Dodge body mount pads


Recommended Posts

New question! Does anyone know the correct thickness of the body mounting pads? I have a lot of old pads but many are crushed or swelled to the point that I can't get a firm thickness. I'm thinking 1/4 in.or 5/16in. I plan to cut them from mine belt. Also,I don't know if they are all the same thickness or if they differ according to location. I know the very front ones are thicker. Thanks in advance! Jim

Hi,

I'm using 8mm pads.

I spoke to a friend of mine and he suggested I use the black hardened rubber that weightlifters slam the weights into when they drop them. I had them cut the same size as the mounting tabs on the chassis and once the body is painted should be easy to move if necessary.

Just another option.

I dont know the correct thickness but may be able to tell you where the differences are if that would help.
