On hold for a while

Since I’m currently making my way down a rather impressive list of home improvement tasks, the build has been put on hold for a few more months. However, this week I got some time to finish my motor mount design and I came up with this:

It’s a strong interlocking design of 3.6 mm ply, doubled on front and back sides. I will add triangular stock around the base where it attaches to the firewall too. If necessary, I may glass the whole assembly but I think it’s strong enough as it is. There’s a one degree down thrust embedded in the mount but no right thrust, since the required right thrust is already built in the firewall by design.

I’ll keep you posted, maybe I’ll be able to show the finished mount in a little while.
