they are on my project list but as they are not totally straightforward to make there are other things higher on the list.

Can you not just fit your old mounts for now and change them later

You could also bulk'em up with a bit of Sikaflex - awesome hard rubbery stuff for bushes. Also, are we talking 340 or 360? They are different, if I recall correctly.
1988 340 1.4 GL, 218k, 5 door (Grey Bess). Gone to CBA.
1991 340 1.7 GL, 64k, 5 door, petrol blue (Deep Blue).
1988 360 2.0 GLE, 140k, 5 door, ocean blue metallic (Blue Bess).
1989 340 1.7 GL, 108k, 3 door (Red Ness).
More info here!

The 360 ones are coming first and then I'll be doing the 340 after. It is likely to be near the end of this year soonest

Filling the old mount with sikaflex is a good idea, ive done it numerous times (on psa TU engine rear mounts mainly) and they have lasted very well. Tbh theyre nigh on as good as polys

November is a strange time to want a poweful lightweight rwd car on uk roads :lol:
