Sport Quattro replica

Postby ralleyquattro » Wed Feb 27, 2013 10:41 pm

This is basically copy of my updates from MG... dated for reference

13/02/2008

It seams that everyone and their grandma is doing an SQ conversion of some sorts. This one is no different. Sort of similar to the highoctane guys, however our kit is in Carbon Fibre and from a different source.

Here is the progress so far.

The car stripping day, engine was first to go, not sure why Mr Hopton is so happy.

Image

OK, engine is out, now what??

Image

This will be fun to fix, NOT

Image

Car flipping day, now I can start cleaning the bottom side. doh!

Image

Beautiful Georgia rust free floors.. ;)

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Big thanks to Mike H and Craig C (highlander) for their help so far!

Mr Cook himself is doing the same project here

http://www.motorgeek.com/viewtopic.php?t=34925

And Mr Hopton has joined us as well.

Time to revive this thread.

Now that the '84 and the TDI are done, time to move ahead with the once abandoned project.

If you remember, this is how the kit arrived home.. :)

Image

Wow.. long time ago I could actually see the walls and the floor of my basement.

Image

This is the damage we had to deal with in the beginning.

Image

Cut out corner

Image

And the chunk of an Ur on the floor.

Image

New piece tacked on.

Image

Out in the sun to check out some gaps etc.

Image
Image

Princess Auto has these great engine stands, that just happen to fit Audi subframe and allow me to roll the car around without wheels.. ;)

Image

But, we were not happy with the repair, the other side had issues as well.. so decision was made to use my old 4000 as a donor for the entire front clip. I have not decided exactly how far it will extend, however feeling is that it will go the entire distance till the 320mm cut line. It will make a stronger base. So.. forward 3 years to last weekend and here are the results.

With help of Mr Cook and my brother in law we cut the 4kq and slid it into the garage.

Image

Image

Image

Image

So more cleaning and cutting and deskinning of the roof etc. etc...
Not to mention decluttering the other side.. :o

Image

Hopefully the next update is not going to be 3 years from now!

01/01/2012

So... as per Craig I did another 10min of work... ;)

Deskinned the roof.

Image

Image

Cleaned pass side tar.

Image

And removed pass side outer rocker.

Image

Image

Some issues on the bottom of the A-pillar, the sunroof drain was pushed back into the pillar and all the slaty water did damage to the bottom door hinge and obviously bottom the pillar itself.

Image

Next I'll be moving onto the driver side, just need to find another spare 20min :lol:

22/01/2012

Got another 20min to spare.. ;)

Started taking stuff off the ur-q this time..

Image

Incredable, Georgia car, coupld not see it from the outside, yet corrosion in the seam.. only up front.

Image

Back end looknig a bit more naked.

Image

Image

Yeah, yeah, yeah... still need to pull all the crap out of the inside (temporary storage)

Here are the cut off parts.

Image

Image

Image

Image

All the yellow stuff is wax overload... someone at the factory must have fallen asleep.. it was couple of mm thick.

More next weekend.

15/02/2012

I was supposed to finish the jig last weekend, but I ran out of gas (welding) :D

So.. picked up a new bottle today and this evening finished up what I started.

Image

Image

Image

Craig thinks it's a bit of an overkill, but I like it.

These Princess Auto engine stands are just great... will keep both subframes nice and square WRT each other.

This weekend hope to get some help and cut the front portion off.

19/02/2012

Another productive day.

After pickin up another 90 quattro for my wife (also white), Mr Cook dropped by and gave me a hand with THE CUT.


Here is the result..

Image

Subframe waiting for the other half.
Image

Then just slide it 320mm into place.. ;)
Image

Here is the left over floor section (already spoken for) hiding behind the body.
Image

And while I had extra hands, we flipped the 4kq section so I can yet again clean the undercoating from yet another floor... boundless joy!! :frustrated:
Image

Still plenty to go.

13/03/2012

Not as much of an update as Mr Cooks but, got couple of spare minutes and cleaned 1/2 of the floor.
Each time I do this I don't wish it on my worse enemy. :frustrated:

As you can see I didn't clean it all the way to the back, that portion will be cut away anyway.

Image

Couple of pin holes here and there... not as nice as the original Georgia Ur-q floor... oh well.

Image

Overall not bad for a Canadian winter beater... :o

Image

Hope to get couple of hours on the weekend and do the other side.. then it's fliparoo time to remove the other rocker.

Lots to go.

21/03/2013

Few things showed up today, curtesy of the Polish connection.

Image
The one on the right is the factory street part.

Image
Incredable attention to detail.

Image
Rear piece that will engage the sport struts I have

Image
He sent me instructions to drill the subframe out to 12mm... rally cars used M12 hardware, learn something new everyday.

Also got these...
Image
The lower one I did not have at all and the middle one from factory is steel and for street car.

Image
Detail of the welds.

Tomorrow back to cleaning the damn floor.. :frustrated:

07/04/2012

Another productive day, got a chance to clean the other side of the floor and one of the wheewells.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Now I need Mr Cook or Mr Hopton to help me flip it back onto the jig... ;)

As well bunch of goodies showed up last week... the rear inner fenders, that will be great help.

Image

Image

Image

Hope to have the B-pillar on the driver side moved back 320mm by the end of the weekend.

Yet more productivity... deskinned the the roof tonight.. look what I found under the C-pillar skin.. Craig, did your Coupe GT have this..

Image

09/04/2012

Another update... moved the B-pillar back and tried the fender on.


Image

Lines up over here pretty good

Image

And back here as well.

Image

Inner view of the position that the fender dictates, approx 310mm, not quite 320.. not sure why.

Image

Detail of the gap between the B-pillar and the wheelwell sheetmetal.

Image

So for now I will just tack the B-pillar in place and wait for the rest of the stuff to do the final welding.

06/05/2012

Another productive weekend.

Removed the other 4kq rocker and both B-pillars

Image

More fettling with the B-pillar position and using the SQ additonal parts (in black).

Image

The other B-pillar detached and moved.

Image

Those two black lines go through couple of dimples, that is 320mm.. ;)

Image

Arial view of stock length of both 4kq and Ur-q floor pieces.

Image

260mm cut out to make some room to work with... getting closer!

Image

More to come as time allows.
Next on the agenda is drilling all the spot welds on the remaining Ur-q floor and working on the 2-door roof.

26/05/2012

Productive morning again, all the spot welds on the C-pillar are now drilled out.. doh!

Image

Image

The rear fender fits much better now with the sheetmetal removed.

Image

This is what it looks like under the trim piece if you were wondering.

Image

14/06/2012

Another productive evening last night, kids were out with mom so I had a bit of peace and quiet.

Prepared the roof for the joining of the two halves.
Removed the A-pillars, part of the C and roughly deskinned the roof.
I was going to get the spot welds seperated as well but broke two drill bit trying... doh!

I can almost smell it!

Image

This is the portion of the original Ur-q roof that needs to be removed.

Image

Two ridges in the roof frame up front is where the actual cut and welding will take place.
This way I don't have to bother the bottom of the A-pillar and cowling, which is probably a lot more pita.

Image

Hope to have Mr Cook one evening next week (can you make it Wednesday) to help me align the chassis and throw few tack welds.
Then Mr Hopton can have the jig and cut his.. ;)

04/08/2012


Always wanting to be different I ordered the last kit for myself in Carbon Kevlar hybrid, just like the works cars.

Image

Image

Also the rear bumper mold is done and parts look awesome!

Image

The only parts missing now are the Hood and the Grill, woohoo...

As soon as the tdi is back on the road the Sport project will be resuming.

08/09/2012

Very productive day even though one plonker did not show up to help.. I guess he does not need the jig as much as he claims.. :slap:

set the jig to 320mm short and let it cook for 12 hours, nope, that's not it..
Anyhoo, put the drivers door, fender and the roof to make sure it all fits.

Image

Image

Door gap, not bad. ;)

Image

And this is how the floor looks at 320mm.

Image

Roof is good at the back as well

Image

And this is why the C-pillar needs so much altering, standard Coupe position.

Image

And another shot from the other side.

Image

While I still had the energy and the drive I did the other side as well just to make sure.

Image

Image

Next is the roof section, for that I do need an extra pair of hands.

11/09/2012

No problem, you can probably have the jig this weekend.
Mr Cook dropped by for an hour or so this evening... we have some more progress.

The roof section is ON... I was worried about the B-pillar cut, somehow I got it just right.

Image

The door gap is spot on!

Image

Even on the other side!

Image

Temporary measure to keep both sides on without welding.. both sides will still ahve to coma apart for proper joint section cleaning etc. etc.
Mr Cook was not amused.

Image

I am so happy, the project is taking shape and I love it.

More to some.

15/09/2012


Another productive evening... tried the CF roof skin with the 2-door roof in place.

Looks good, only part I took off previously that needs to go back on.

Image

Also cut the C-pillar and split it to match the roof.
Looks good on the pass side.

Image

And the drivers side.

Image

Looking more and more like a proper thing.

Image

Tomorrow Mr Hopton will be taking the jig away, but at least I have everything marked now so I can start cleaning and preparing for welding.

22/02/2013


FYI this month marks 5 years since the project was started.
It has been interrupted few times with other happenings, kids/family, projects ('84 and tdi).
But in between we found a way to forge forward. Not only that Mike and Craig have also decided to build their own cars, so this means sharing of resources.

I am hoping to have the chassis and roll cage completed this spring and start assembling the beast.
In the beggining I gave myself a timeline of 8 years, with Mike and Craig's moral support I feel confident this can be achieved.

Thanks for all the support from the community!

I am leaning towards a KKK unit for appearances sake, the location will be exactly the same as original Sport, will need a header to position it... the intake is a deciding factor here unfortunately.

I could send you a flange, turbo and flange, and as long as you can weld the flange to the head flange, I ought to be able to make a header that would fit. Might be hard to make on a one off cost effective, but I'd be interested in helping. Perhaps a topic for Carlisle? BTW, I am bringing some sample linkage crossovers for you to try.

I decided to fill the void by getting some more parts.. :hide:

Here is what will be arriving at my door soon (no pun intended).

Nice doors Martin, :drool: but I'm not surprised. The parts you have collected thus far blows my mind. I'm not sure how you do it but I almost expect to see this sort of stuff now. :hail: To shock us now you'd almost have to find an aluminum block for your sport. :P Wait, you don't already have Michele Mouton in your basement do you? :D
