    Aww, come on Scotty boy, you have your flaws just like me, Trekkie!!! :jester:

    Sadly, i aint touched the Audi :sadlike: but there is a collection of parts gathered for when A- I have time to sort and arrange working on it, and B- when the love returns, just far to busy with other stuff nowadays :sob:

    90% finished on my Pi install.



    So far I've mounted it in the boot.

    Made a custom cable.

    I'm not waiting on a keyboard and mouse. extra short (10cm) USB cable and me to shift my ass and wiring in the 12v socket for the charger, the relay to keep power to the pi/tuner while the key is in the ignition and a short/stumpy SD card.

    Bit of a update.

    Got my new short USB Micro cable for the pi.
    I wanted short but I think this might be a bit to short.

    [​IMG]


    Luckily it was just the right size. Any smaller and it would be unusable
    I used a 12v USB photo charger for the Pi's power source, made a bracket for the socket, bolted it all together and fitted back in the car and this is what I ended up with.

    [​IMG]


    Almost there.
    Just waiting on a slim line USB stick and a wifi compact keyboard/mouse combo to turn up, then I'm done.
    I think.

    Be cause I can. lol

    I spend about 30-60 mins a day at on a ferry getting to work, I tend to use my phone and watch Youtube.
    I liked the idea of watching films or using the RNS unit and since it's not a DVD player, I thought I might as well make something else with more use/features.
    I can now surf the internet, watch films or TV.


    Bradders, Want me to Plasti dip the trims in glow in the dark dip?

    Well done Scott! I have been reading about people using tablets as head units, i'm getting very tempted. Stems from the old carputers, but they were gay as they were too big. A tablet would be sweet. I could get mrs crazy88 to laser cut me a surround easily enough too...very tempting.

    You seen this...http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/project-room/176683-ipad-install-b5-rs4.html

    I'm thinking Nexus 7 in my double din slot.

    gave car full service including changing fuel filter, fitted new front brake pads,
    topped up front diff as have a very small leak,

    fitted new rocker cover gaskets and replaced the bottom c links as one rubber had split on the one but thought may well do them both.

    then had a look a mates tt as it sounded like his exhaust manifold gone but turned out turbo was loose??? he said it started not long after a garage near him did some work on the car, so maybe they forgot to tighten it up. also found one the pipe connections on his n75 valve has broke but looks like some has tried to already glue it before. so have ordered new gasket for turbo and he sorting new valve.

    been busy day , but has helped I had free access to mates workshop.

    Autosol'd the **** out of the exhaust tips;

    Audi 2 001.jpg

    Looks 10 times better than before and the amount of hardened soot that fell out too... jesus!

    Retro fitted a Grey leather armrest;

    Audi 2 002.jpg

    Audi in their infinite wisdom had already laid the template on the under side of the tunnel trim so they could punch it out if you ticked it as a optional extra from new I guess? Using a hole drill piece I simply cut the shape required to allow the armrest to pass through the trim and mount onto the foot of the armrest, 3 bolts to secure it down and there you have it. The only minor snag now is I can't close the ashtray lid in the back as it fouls the armrest mounting plate, I think a bit of jiggery pokery and it should be fine, but can't be bothered to take it all apart again!

    Replaced the rear axle bushes with the gracious help of Byzan :salute:

    one down side is that I can now hear that one of the rear bearings is really noisy...

    :banghead: will it never end....
