So the front of the Rad air intake needed a transition (see pic. above). Made one of these for each side. (Still needs to get cut flush with the rocker)

Side panel on pass. side cut and fit. Have to do the other side yet and then prime/paint and then weld the panels permanently.

What are you planning for drivetrain?

Nice, I figured it wouldn't be an MC1 or anything but I was curious. Keep up the great work!

Plan to use the 7A block with modified 7A head, Wagner intake, I think the turbo is a holset he 351ve (purchased over 9 years ago) and of course the supporting mods. Most of the parts I have been collecting for over 15 years and still need to make 2 more big purchases as well as a some small ones.

Thought you guys might like the new view.

Wow, talk about dedication... parts hoarding for 15 years! Makes me feel better taking 5 to get where I am so far haha

What are your plans for actuation of the variable geometry turbine? Or just keep it simple and run at one A/R?

Idea is to use linear actuator via PWM from the ecu. I found some that I think are fast enough but the torque might be a little on the weak side. Next up would be wastegate actuator with valve in control line for adjustability. If that does not work I will find the turbos sweet spot, lock that mechanically and put an electric turbo in the intake tract to help out the bottom end. I think the newer 1.4 engines use a electic turbo to eliminate lag running at 48 Volts. Mine would be a handmade/homemade unit of course and hoping to get away with 12-24 Volts.

Thank you sir. I have to be honest , this started out with just a fender graft on all for corners. You know Just 2 moths of work, maybe 4 on the outside and morphed into what you see in these pages. :nuts: :rofl:

PP is the home of scope creep. You are in the right place.

So its official, scope creep is a disease and I have it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bottom of Rad intake closure pieces are made and have radius on uphill side. Still need radius on downhill side. This piece is for the passenger side and the wire is longer than the other, as the pass. side was hit in that area and the wire reestablishes the body line.

Area that was hit. So one part was pushed in and the door edge was pushed out, that required some brutal hammer blows to straighten. You can see the area that needs a new bodyline.

Other side mocked up. On this side the wire is quite a bit shorter as all the sheet metal meets nicely.

Still have two more transition pieces to make for the side of the Rad intake. Need to get those done before paint and final welding.

Thanks, as far as the pictures they load fine for me and should only be supersized when you click on them !
Anyone else having this problem ?

Both bottoms done, radius on each side

sorry I should have been more clearer with my post. They load but instead of showing the full picture I only get part of the picture with scrollers for up/down to see the rest of the picture unlike most sites that show a slightly smaller version then if you click the picture it shows the full picture.

Sorry if I missed it but what engine are you planning on using in this?

Incredible detail work, really draws everything together nicely.

Curious about the screw in the last pic, the one that holds the panel onto the body. Is it just there to hold the seam in place while it gets welded?

@pete82: Sorry you are having issues with the pictures. I took a look at user control panel but could not find any relevant settings for pictures , wish I could help. Engine 7A Turbo.

@PRY4SNO: Yes screw just holds panel in place for alignment and welding and will go away once welding is done.

Have one more transition to make for driver side Rad intake. Should have Pictures in a couple days.

Sorry I thought it was understood that the Porsche fenders ended up on the Audi.

Washington State, on the wet coast. :o

Side skirts have been modified (see few pages up).


Got some painting done on areas that get covered with some of the parts I made and welded the side and bottom transitions to the car.

Driver side

Now all of that needs seam sealed, primed and painted.
