The body mount bolts all came out like clock work except for this one. I thought I let the WD40 soak long enough.

I'm wondering why you took it apart? Looks like a freshly restored car to me.

Also- WD40 is not a good rust penetrant at all, not much better than water. There's much better products on the market.

Number 1 body mount on the drivers side was rusting out. I cleaned all the rust out and welded a shim to the top, then drilled out the hole to fit the bushing. When I install the shims on thi one I think i'll leave one out.
