I feel like actually contributing to this world so here it is my first ever write up. I'm poor and I never really like paying for something I can reproduce with similar or better results. This has been done by many for many years and is quite effective.

I used a 5/8" drill bit for the insert its perfect. Next time I'm going to use a 3/4" bit for a more tighter for the insert. If you're worried about the pucks coming out I use 5/8th washers to sandwich the pucks into the mounts between the frame rails.

Sorry no after videos at the moment.

Im curious how will hockey pucks hold up.... I wonder if they will squish out and get sloppy eventually?

Windo Weld would be nowhere near as stiff, lol. If I were building a drag car on the cheap, I'd definitely run hockey puck mounts. But since all my cars are street driven 99% of the time, ES inserts or Windo Weld works just fine for me.

cool stuff!

and everything ended up to be how much?
I think $15 for 12 pucks

not a bad idea. i would be afraid of the pucks wallowing out, but other than that great idea.
I have washers between the framerails, but that doesn't do a great job in stopping them from moving around so in the furture I'll add something to keep them still

i am from South Texas....what is a hockey puck?
I'm in south georgia, no place around here could order them...my father ordered them for me as a present...

But since all my cars are street driven 99% of the time, ES inserts or Windo Weld works just fine for me.
The whole window weld/inserts I did for 4 years and with three filled mounts I still had horrible movement which you can see in the vid, and 12 pucks where cheaper then re-doing the es insert/window.

And how's the vibrations after the puck install?
Idk I've driven this car for awhile and its always been a "rough" riding car.

Update on the mounts. After a year of abuse I decided the passenger tranny mount wasn't a safe idea as the pucks were moving around. But the rear mount showed no sign of movement.
