This should work well to reinforce most of the rubber bushings on our cars. It is an added bonus that you don't need a torch, press, or hacksaw (like you would to install a new poly bushing kit) if you go this route.
Thank you for the reply, I am definitely doing this to suspension bushings!

Nice DIY!! This is a great idea, one I've never even thought of before. I wish I had known this when my front mount kept going on my old '87 Jetta, had to keep replacing it. I'm definately gonna keep this in mind and can't wait to try it for myself

I replaced my front engine mount for the second time 2 months ago within 1 year of having the car... I think I'll be doing this before this one goes bad... Terrific write up BTW......

Thanks for the props, guys. I do give my attention to detail

I bet a lot of us will never buy a new engine mount or bushing again!

I'd like to make another DIY, and I think it would be kinda cool to use video... I just want to make sure they're well chosen. LED conversions and Head Porting would be cool I think...

Autozone/Advance/Carquest, and the like. It's sealant for putting in automotive windshields and windows. Should be less than $20.

I broke my torqe mount as well, but i didnt go the wind-weld route. My car has pretty much turned into a project, so i made a solid mount the other day.

I cut Rings out of sheet metal, then welded them centerd over where the old rubber used to be. Esentially i made a solid engine mount. It only shakes when you start the car, and REALLY improved the launches, and gear changes.

Just thought id let you know. Same concept, just different execution. I plan on going the windo-weld way with all the others.

I need some 1/4" bushings with a hole in the middle...

QUESTION:

Could I put about 1/4" of this windo-weld stuff in a plastic cup, then wait till it hardens, take it out, and drill a hole in the middle?
How strong would these bushings be?

not very strong. What are you going to use the bushings for.

well I have aftermarket mounts in my Civic that I filled with McMaster 94A stuff but it is brutal. I want to basically drill out the McMaster stuff and try windo-weld. But I also want to make ~1/4" bushings and put them inbetween the mount and the mount bracket to minimize vibrations (I kinda did a bad job filling the mounts and now have metal part of the mount touching the metal bracket and I think that is cauzing a lot of vibration).

It's hard to say without seeing the application. You're going to end up having to do most of the technical masterminding yourself.
If you've already used the technique successfully with the harder urethane, and the stiffness was the only issue, you'd probably be fine.
If you've got a bolt going thru the hole in the center of the bushing, I would suggest inserting a metal sleeve for reliability reasons.

Thanks, I am going to try doing this and I will have metal sleeves going through it. Hopefully it works and makes my car vibrate less, it is soo much cheaper than buying new mounts.

I just looked at my engine mounts today after seeing this DIY and guess what? They're shot.

I'm definitely gonna do this DIY when I get the chance. Great write up man! The visual aids are awesome.

I tried both of these. I prefer the window weld over the poly. The poly was too stiff and cause a vibration thru out the body. If your gonna do the window weld, get a set of new mounts or if you have a used set in decent condition use those. It took a week for the window weld to harden properly, but no vibration.
