Keep the updates coming - two questions come to mind, target weight (if any) and what are your weight bias expectations with moving cooling to the rear of the car?

Target weight is as light as possible (2800-2900 LBS.?) Weight bias expectations: Unless I got this wrong I believe that stock is 57 F 43 R hoping to get 54 F 46R . 50/50 would be nice but even the Works cars with all the stuff they had in the trunk are nose heavy as far as I know. Hoping to run bigger tire up front to help the heavy nose.

Made some angle frames for the rad intakes on the inside of the car and welded them in place. Also made mates for these frames with nuts on the backside and after these where bolted in the car started to connect the dots.

I hope you’re planning on putting a more powerful engine in it, ‘cause it’s gonna be a sloth! Unless you’re just going for looks, it’s great. Isn’t it a cute lil fella?!?!

Looks great, I thinks that’s a realistic target. Your only technically adding a few strips of metal to the fenders and then the rear cooling work.

Thanks and I let you guys know how heavy the car is when it is done. Not to worried about the weight to much as the car can use the weight in the rear and as PRY4SNO pointed out "Weight Gain Can BE Offset By More Boost"

Made tops for the Rad. ducting , added cross bracing and mounting holes/tabs.

Next the have to come out for welding and grinding. Then the pieces will get straightened and clad with sheet metal. Then paint and reinstall plus seam seal.

Thanks: PRY4SNO , FFF

Took the Rad. ducting frames out of the car and added tabs, holes/nuts where needed. Welded everything and ground all the joints. Then made sheet metal parts to weld on the frames. Lots and lots of sanding some primer
and once the sheet metal is welded to the frames they will get sealed primed and painted. Then they get bolted back in the car and all the bolted joints other than the top will get sealed as well.

That all looks like this now ready for more primer, seam seal and finish paint. Bolted all the parts together to check fit and make final adjustments. I swear this ducting appears smaller in the car.

Yes , Since the point was made and I was curious myself. The parts weight in at 91 LBS. and are all seam sealed plus primer. Why the chair???????? Next time car needs to move I will weight the rear seat and see whether the difference is positive or negative.

Last areas to be sealed and prime/paint

Then finish paint the rest of the ducting and reinstall in car.

While working on the rear ducting floor piece and looking at water drainage needs. I decided on a rear diff. cooling vent that doubles as a drain. One new hole in the car and a three piece tube later.

That's a good idea. Don't want to be sidelined by a little rain in a quattro. It will also help if you put a belly pan in the rear.
