Soda can motor mount

Don't know if any of you will use it. Here's my solution for my motor mount problems. Here's some pics.

Yep yep

It's the pink stuff. With a bit of bamboo reinforcement, it's pretty durable. Blue-cor is 34.00 at lowe's when I last checked a month ago. When I run out of the pink stuff, I'll get some of that white R-tech foam or The amish lumberyard has some purple foam.

Checked it

I've checked out that foam, yeah it's good and I understand why the guy's have gotten into business. as far as a number crunch and my experimenting with different building technique's, and use of recycled material's I can get stuff way cheaper in my area. 4'x8'x1" for 10.00 and I built a foam wire cutter from scrap material's I had around. Can't hardly beat Dollar tree foam.

Thank's for the link, and appreciate the post.
