    RS4 body conversion update

    Well as some of you know I'm building a RS4 look A4 1.8TQ ok it was going to be my 2.8 but I picked up an 2000 1.8TQ very cheaply so I have moved the project to that.

    Anyway here some pic's of what I have been up to and thing are going in to over drive over the next few weeks.

    When she was dropped off.





    And What she looks like now.





    Oh and for those thinking of doing a 6 speed swap I think its quite possible but you would have to get the whole rear sub-frame which carrys the diff but would bolt back up to the existing points on the car.

    Dave,

    Yes, we can do it for the 1.8T now. Have to use a 135o silicone hose and an adaptor plate, but it does work. JayB is using one on his A4 1.8T.

    Re: RS4 body conversion update

    Yeh I remember him saying so but he never posted up any pic's.

    Did he use the same size CDA/BMC as I did for my 2.8 if so can I buy just a fitting kit for the the 1.8T and I will take mine of the 2.8?

    Re: RS4 body conversion update

    Yours should look similar to this at the front. Notice that this A4 has not got the wide rears.


    Does look pretty good.

    Here is another with wide arches!

    Didn't fit huh? Don't I bloody know it!?

    Do you remember me ordering one of those from you Jase?

    I p*ssed about with it for hours... I even got to the point where thought I was doing something wrong!

    Even called the suppliers and spoke to them about it but they didn't know a thing and weren't really interested a great deal to be honest.

    Pain in the ar*e! I honestly can't believe that for the price you pay for those BMC's that they don't come with a fitting kit [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

    That looks great now though, Rich actually showed me those pics before and I think it fits perfectly. Needs a bracket though [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Yep, I certainly do remember mate! The one on mine now is the one you originally had! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    There was no chance of it fitting without adding bits & pieces!! Have no idea how they made it fit on an A4 as it was....

    It's good and sounds nice too! The bracket will be done shortly [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yes.gif[/img]

    Re: RS4 body conversion update

    Ok every on here are this weekend picture update and a lot has happened.

    This was what the base car looked like last week.



    And now.






    I was some what shocked when I turned up and found the rear quarter on one side done as I was told he would not start on it till next week.

    It only took 2 days to do the rear, I did the front on Saturday but all parts will be taken off again for painting.

    That's looking really good David. He got a lot done for 2 days.

    Please let me know if he kept the rest of the rear wing.

    Re: RS4 body conversion update

    It will remain silver but another shade and make, I like the Yam R1 silver and some of the new silvers you see on the vans.

    I'm looking for somthing that sort of looks like metal/ally.

    David,

    Have you seen the House of Kolor range?
    http://www.houseofkolor.co.uk/
    Not cheap but it's the paints that you'll see on all the American custom car programmes on Sky e.g. Overhaulin', Pimp my Ride, Hot Rod build off, etc etc.

    Re: RS4 body conversion update

    Thanks for the link, like that lacquer.

    FA-01 is designed to reduce the gloss of our acrylic lacquer and polyurethane enamel topcoats and clears. FA-01 will not effect adhesion or hardness. You can vary the amount of gloss reduction (from 10% to 99%) depending on the amount of FLATTENING AGENT used. FA-01 is great for undercarriages, frames and engine parts where high gloss is not desired, but a tough, durable finish is.

    Well Dave, There is no reason why it shouldn't look as good. That car was the first S4 RS4 conversion i'd seen back in 2002 on audiworld and its stunning... great job. Yours will be great!

    David,

    Found out there is another RS4 saloon in the UK. It is Keith Murray's of Dialynx. He is racing and winning with it. Looks good in red.
