Looks fantastic! I love this thread

Thanks,
That's waay too gracious.
The car does look better, but only maybe because it's all one colour..
The paint job is horrid...and the panel fit is very off.
More pictures to come before storage.

Re: (Entwerfer des Audis)

Sepp, all the best wishes to you and good luck in Oregon!

The quat looks, uhm, ok by now

I guess you should get an Euro front bumper, it looks strange with Euro lights and NA front bumper (ok, it looks strange for me, because down here all Urquattros have Eurolights and Eurobumpers
)

Sepp!
And I still have patience!

I guess you have enough to do to manage your move to Oregon, so take the time you need!
My Audi is back in storage and won't come out until the end of April 2010 http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

Stinks about the move to Oregon coming at a bad time. I've been a bit busy and lost track of this thread. I'd offer a place for the Ur-Q but I currently have a 90% done 20VT 4000Q, another 4000Q with a blown 10VT, and the fleet of daily drivers.

Re: (Quattro Krant)

So is she in storage now? I just caught up with this build and it seems like you've come pretty far, and have a plan for it which is nice. It'll be good to have some more Ur-q action here on the west coast http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Yes, in storage till the spring, and my parents graciously volunteered to drive 10 hours from NY up to Maine with a trailer to get it when the time comes.
They don't mind as they will spend a week of vacation while they are up there.
I'll get it shipped across next summer.
And then the project will continue....................................................

Re: (Shining Projects)

Remind me of your car?
There's another gent in Washington that has an other beautiful '85, but he usually shows up to shows with some sweet Mk1 Jetta(s)

Re: (doonboggle)

still here...but the car is 3000+ miles away..so no progress....
Liquid Dish soap works fantastic for getting sticky rubber parts to be very slippery, until the soap dries...and then the rubber is sticky again.
For the firewall grommet, I used just a small amount of dish soap to make it easier to run the heater core lines through the holes, and also a bit on the back side of the grommet, to make it just slide into the hole in the firewall.
Just lube up the hoses, and smear some on the outter back edge of the grommet!
