I agree, weld it and run it. Are you able to at least position the repair to the shroud down so it's less visible?

The RS2 shroud (aka "Cowl" on the AT website) is PN: 893121207H

Do you have a PN for the 500w fan that's in the RS2/200 20v?

Issam got me the shroud , so I have that . The fan , if my number is right I have 443 959 455 N

It’s not going to be perfect don’t I could weld it then polish it so it’s not even visible .
The good news is now I know I can make one - it’s making that first piece that can be really frustrating .
If I wanted to remake it I guess I would need 3003-H14 instead of 6061

Fan setup dialed [THUMBS UP SIGN]

Oil cooler will go here. It’s rubber mounted

Also another important piece that took a while to find . For the oil pan. So tomorrow I should have everything I need to make the supply and return line to the oil cooler - at that point I will be able to fill the car with oil . Coolant not far behind

The shroud is RS2 but the fan is from a 200Q

Gonna look at wiring today on the headlights .
The stock stuff is in bad shape . I have a sealed 3 relay box I am going to try and get it in there clean.
Need to find the Diagrams and figure out which is high/low . Turns . Etc. everything needs to get cleaned up .
These are the lights and the relay setup.
Everything is made with Waytek wire , high quality heat shrink and nice 3M glue/shrink butt connectors. Waterproof sealed box with 3 relays and 3 fuses.

Current wiring !!!

If I take it back to where the shielding is , it makes a big difference . These are not all cracked and dry.
So once I figure out what’s what I can tie in the H1/H4 high and lows with he relayed setup, then figure out exactly what needs to stay and what can go with the remainder of the wires and clean all that up.

I'm very interested in seeing how the headlight rewiring turns out. The PO appears to have scotch locked unfused power to one of the circuits, then to what I think was a city light. :bangshead:

Well for one . Yes there is some interesting wiring in there . I am kind of doubting that was the PO but likely the original owner before him.
But in addition to that even the stock wiring on these cars left untouched can get sketchy. All the heat and elements in the engine bay (or likely even overheating the wires themselves) has really made everything extremely brittle and all those wires just want to crack.
So the dual purpose of this relayed setup is to take some load off of the factory fusebox and also to clean up and make that wiring safe . At the same time converting to the euro lights. It had stock lights in when I got it.
I hit a stopping point because I wanted to get some newer connectors , the stock ones are garbage . I found some per Alex’s recommendation that will Work nice - and if I don’t end up working all weekend maybe I can finish that setup and have some lights .

Once this is done I will have a professional quality relayed & fused cooling fan setup and a (hopefully semi professional looking) relayed & fused headlight setup and should alleviate some of the concerns of overload on the factory fuse box .
