Default trans mount on 93 Bonne SE

The front trans mount on my 1993 Bonne SE failed after 349,000 miles. Replacing it turned out to be a major headache and I want to share my experience in hopes it would save others the same grief. This repair should take about an hour, I spent 8 hours making this part work.The part I bought was made by Anchor in Taiwan, the part number is 2800. It was poorly made and the bolt holes would not line up. It is sold in my area by Advance, NAPA, O'rielly and the local retailer. In the first photo you see the original part in a fixture to measure the bolt locations. The second photo is the new part as I received it. The others show how I notched the part and made a bent flat washer to cover the huge notch I had to make it work.

Thanks for taking the time to show how you modified the aftermarket mount to work.
