Flexi if you're going to use fairly solid mounts pal. You will regret it later when shit starts cracking. 

Sweet as, just bought a couple of AdrenalinR ones. They're probably needed since the exhaust runs very close to some of the crossmembers anyway

That a Merc in the background?

dude  wheres the build thread for that!

Yeah it's one of the Mercs my parents own. Currently just have the two but have also owned another couple over the recent years. That one was imported from America with the roof chopped off and Junior's in Wellington finished it off. Hasn't had much done to it since, Dad wants to start on the Model A Tudor before that one.

May have already been asked but what welding kit are you using? Presume 3 phase setup?

Wicked fab skills

Thanks! 
At home it's the complete opposite actually, just a cheap non-branded single phase welder, ain't the greatest for heavier stuff. Otherwise the ones I have at work are big 3 phase Lincoln ones
