Been working on a few things but nothing too exciting. we finally found some proper UR quattro rear brake calipers




You can see how the handbrake cable and brake line come in from the back instead of the side therefor avoiding the axle.






Amanda made some more incremental progress on the model. She says she's going to paint the stripes next.



Then we started on resealing the rear differential.








No wear groove on the input flange

Rear diff is back together with new seals. Now we need to decide what color to paint it.




Amanda has started painting stripes on the model.






We borrowed an OE refinished rear caliper and decided this is the way to go with ours.




In anticipation of panels showing up Thompson Racing Fabrication took the car out of storage and delivered it to Cherry Classic Cars. We must admit it's nice to get re-acquainted.






Now we just need our wide body kit.

Panels did indeed show up from Europe from Cool Wheels in Latvia. Cherry Classic Cars wasted no time in offering them up to the body. As expected with composite reproduction panels it's going to take quite a bit if fettling to get a good fit.

They also set about fixing the rust on the shell and other minor repairs.

The shell is still at the body shop: Cherry Classic Cars in Michigan but we recently went to visit it and to make some decisions about how to put it together.






We also found a kevlar composite trunk lid in Canada




and received some vintage gauges and switches from another quattro aficionado.

More wide body progress on the rally build. Front and rear fenders are being wrestled into place by the guys at Cherry Classic Cars:

Starting to look like a car again.

The rally Quattro is still up north at Cherry Classic Cars but it's coming along nicely. We might get it back as early as this month! Meanwhile here are some more updates.

A few weeks ago we were summoned up to CCC to help figure out how to deal with this poor bumper fitment issue:






Should the bumper go behind the quarter panel or should it butt up and why is the quarter panel so far out or the bumper so not wide enough? We feel we have a solution. More later.

While we were up there we discovered that our car has manual, wind up windows! These must have been changed by a previous owner as no Quattros had these from the factory. Gues we don't have to find a spot for the window switches now but, because of the cage, we may only be able to wind down the windows with the doors open!






While we away in the frozen north our fab guy got a little creative with our engine. As a result we now have the world's only five cyclinder, turbo charged shopping cart!




The catalyst for this creativity was the Quattro Squad separating the transmission and giving it a good clean in preparation for either a rebuild or, hopefully, just a reseal.






We also pulled the seats down from the parts shelf and cleaned them up in preparation for selling them. Not so much to generate funds but to create some space. They cleaned up very nicely and are in excellent shape. No tears at all; just a little wear on the driver's seat. I think they would restore quite well but we want to sell them as they are rather than cover things up. We think we could reasonably ask $1000 for them.






Subscribe for more updates soon and to see if the car makes it back here this month.
