Working on the side Rad outlets ,so I can get the rear fenders on. I know that I told you guys that the rear fenders are going on after the Rad intakes where done ,but i forgot the side outlets needed attention as well. :shame:
So the taillights I had cut down sometime ago went back in the car for some sheet metal work.

Added a barrier behind tai light to close things up.

This is how much the tail light gave up to make this all fit

A few more pieces of metal to add in the rear to keep water out ,seam seal ,paint ,fiberglass work. And the rear fenders are going on for realzzzzzz!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also there are no more slots in the car that I had to cut to pull the sheet metal where it had to go ,they are all welded.
I am going to eat dinner and of to the garage . I did get my heater in the garage fixed so paint and glasswork is going to commence.

I feel bad cluttering up this thread with a comment, but I really enjoy seeing this kind of dream take shape. Keep it up!

Oh no, please do comment and clutter. Ideas, critique, suggestions, clutter and comments are much appreciated.
I thought that is what its all about. Make post on page with Good audi community and enjoy peoples input and comments, all the while realizing that what I am doing is not everybody's cup of tea.

If your avatar is your engine compartment, looks like you have the same cursed dreams/visions than the rest of us. Looks nice, wish my project was this far along.

Oh thanks! I'm actually living vicariously through your project and others. I have since sold that engine bay and the car with it. It was purchased by a member here though, so I get to see it live on.

I'm hoping I can get into another project someday but it's not in the cards right now.

I was happily sanding and seam sealing in anticipation of installing the rear Rad outlets on the side of the car.

Slid the pass. side in for one final eyeball lineup and was reminded that the battery that has to go there as previously planed. Put the sandpaper away and grabbed the fabtools cut some metal on the car and made a battery mount.

Still needs a couple more supports, some tweaks welding and I can get the sandpaper back out to finish the side Rad outlets.

Looking good - any idea on what the weight difference from stock will be?

Thanks dan, not that I am keeping track but for sure this has to be the second time you dropped some.

Thanks FFF, and as far as the weight difference, I have no clue. I played with the idea to weight the stuff as it came out but decided time would be better spent building the car.

I would think the more favourable weight distribution would be the biggest impact. I'd say you're adding a little and improving the balance toward 50:50, so the car will both look cooler and handle better. More boost solves any weight gain ;)

Get out of my head please. Other than "More boost solves any weight gain" my thought exactly: There is no way to get 50:50 but I am gunning for 47-48:50. Moving battery is worth 1 to 1.5% my rad. plus the water it holds is maybe another .5% so hopefully I be looking at 2%.

Thanks Mcstiff , that site I was not familiar with, lots of cool stuff.

Small update:

Side rad outlets are glued in place, needing to be fiber glassed.

I did learn a lot doing fiber glassing for the first time. Also been prepping the rear quarters for prime ,paint and welding. More paint drying torture in my future. :zzz:

More prime and paint ,a couple of test fits and the rear of my car will no longer have Gaping Holes. Well of course they still need welding to the car.

Funny, my original thought/design of returning the rear fender to the body with a grill would look better than the scoop.
But I keep telling myself " Function over Form " :idunno:
