    Liking the centre console mate.
    I keep looking at mine and thinking of doing something like that.
    I'm shocked that no one made a complete replacement to save having them annoying little spacers.

    The lights do look a lot better as well.

    Hows the ICE coming along?

    Thanks lads.

    Geeman- As Scott said, screws/torx but im sure they were behind the stereo?

    Scott- Thats all the front end stuff finished now, so just to concentrate on my amp rack, then trim that and the box and install subs, 2nd amp etc. Not long now, promise! lol.

    Rob- Thanks mate.

    Following on with the audio install, this is for the amps, with template

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Had to countersink the mounting points

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Top side drilled through with 10mm holes

    [​IMG]

    Trial fit in the car....this is why the bolts were added before

    [​IMG]

    Longer bolts will be cut down, and countersinking so amps can be mounted over these fixings

    [​IMG]

    The rack obscured the boot light slightly so trimmed of a bit

    [​IMG]

    Drilled corners then jigsawed out

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Made up a template to trim some edge of the rack and so it flowed better with shape of boot

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Cuts done

    [​IMG]

    Back in for another trial fit, looking better now

    [​IMG]

    Then i had to configure the amp arrangement

    [​IMG]

    Decided to space them, ready for wiring

    [​IMG]

    All marked out and holes started

    [​IMG]

    All fixed wiring on top side

    [​IMG]

    And complete

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Used this to take back to metal for good earth

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Rack in final position with cables all routed thru

    [​IMG]

    Subs ready for fitting

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Banana plugs and cable for subs

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Finally all wired and in position

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Settings all accessible from inside the car

    [​IMG]

    Just some last pieces needed to cover the cable run, trim the rack and box and form some mounting design to solid mount the box, carry on with this soon, unless i decide to sell!:(

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    OUCH!!! Bumper has seen better days so decided to get it off anyway seeing as the cars back in the garage

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Kinda like the look without the bumper, if only it was legal!!! lol

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Thats a harsh drive.
    No wonder you keep catching the bumper.
    Shell out for some Air ride. :)

    What is it in the garage for now?

    Tell me bout it, plan is to move in a year or so, so will hopefully eliminate that problem soon!

    I took it back off the road when i lost my job mate, cashed in the tax aswell as its too thirsty for daily duties and cant run it on my "im a feckin scumbag not trying to find a job" allowance! Will use that time wisely to upgrade some bushes etc and vacum lines for when the mighty charger gets thrown into the mix!:busted_cop:

    Cant believe i havent seen this since Nov! Car has been locked away due to financial issues after job change, and getting ready to move home soon so no more stupid camber on the drive to ruin it anymore!!!!!!!

    Ready to start a few things on it in the next few weeks to get the ball rolling for this year, and a custom front bumper to be fitted for the time being till i can source and have an RS4 bumper done again at a later date.

    Ahoy!

    I posted on your thread at superchargedaudi but it appears that this is where you post more frequently.. just wanted to congratulate you on the work you've done on your car and i certainly will take lessons from your experiences and DIYs.

    I was just wondering whether your PES G2 install was successful?

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for kind comments.

    PelicanBlue- I havent been on SC for a bit mainly due to not having done anything with the charger install yet, have mostly everything needed now including equal length DP's, uprated injectors etc, the other bits are the expensive and harder to find stuff like somebody to do a full custom map on it as i believe the PES map is pretty ****. Im currently moving home also which is taking up a lot of time and money, but as soon as i have settled and saved a bit, i intend on pushing on with it again, will update here and on SC Audi when i do to let you know.

    Cheers!:beerchug:

    At last, an update, in between all the house move stuff aswell....

    Anyway, made a start on getting the seat mounts fabricated up. Started off with the Ford RS Recaro sliders, had to remove the mounts fitted for the Escort, quite easy, bit of grinding and they were off

    [​IMG]

    Got the auld man skivvying for me aswell! lol

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    All done and smooth, ready to mate

    [​IMG]

    And one perfectly good Audi Sport seat....

    [​IMG]

    Dismembered......

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And a quick mock up of both runners

    [​IMG]

    Now its a case of some measuring and get a tack weld to attach them, then a trial fit of the seat, if all is good with measurements and heights etc, the 2nd will be done, then sent in for seam welding and painting, ready to fit.

    Hopefully able to trial fit one seat tomorrow seeing as the weathers holding up!:happy:

    Just for you Scott^^^ (now seeing as weathers good, go fit those wheels ya whorebag!):whip:



    Unfortunately i didnt make it to welders today, more "home" things had to happen first!

    But i did manage a quick trial fit in the Audi to make sure all looks well

    [​IMG]

    At this point there are 2 means of slide adjustment, the Audi design that is on the B5 frames and the Recaro design that is on the Ford sliders. Decision made to cut up the rest of the Ford design to obtain only 2 rails i need that bolt onto the bottom of the Recaro seats, these will now be set out and welded onto the B5 base, tac at first with a test fit of the seat to check heights, position etc with any final adjustments done, they will then be fully seam welded at every contact point possible between the rails, to obtain a proper, single piece seat mount ready to fit.

    More pics from today

    [​IMG]

    And what im now left with from the Ford rails

    [​IMG]

    Some careful measuring of the seats

    [​IMG]

    And my Rolf Harris engineers drawing

    [​IMG]

    Looking like i might have tomorrow off maybe, so will defo get the welding started if thats the case!:arco:
