i welded up the lower hole i cut into it..my mistake.. had new hardlines made up, shop covered the the lines with fabric brake hose to keep it from being damaged due to vibration,, had to enlarge the oem hole, dremal and lots of filing.... test fit a few times so i could get the lines a good distance from the bellhousing, then sanded smooth

welded up new transmission mount...here is a tip, on complex shapes get a 2 or 3 in deep tray, fill it full of sand. press the steel into the sand in the shape that you want, check the shape, use magnets to stablise the steel. tack the steel in the spots... pull the steel out of the sand adjust were you need to, tack weld the other side.. clean the steel, then finish the welding
