Then after seeing the idea here i removed and covered the B pillars in carbon film
Picture272.jpg


Picture274.jpg


Also used the excess on sum parts in engine bay, not perfect but u get the idea

DSC00051.jpg


Bought sum clear side repeaters for the sides to clean them up, but didnt realise how much bigger these ones were compared to originals!!!:wtf:
Picture270.jpg

Picture275.jpg


Fitted them for time being anyway till i decide if they look too stoopid!!! Might get normal clears to replace them, wot u think???

Picture276.jpg

Picture277.jpg


Picked up a genuine Quattro badge cheapish as i thought the front needed something on the grille, too plain.

Picture271.jpg


And the gaffer checking everything is being done to a good standard to "the wee Audi" as she calls it! lol:)

Picture278.jpg


Still had some carbon film left so found sumthin else to do, covered the lower bumper grille uprights like the facelift bumpers style, all black.

Picture279.jpg


Thats it for time being, manged to track down sum facelift rear lights and changing the side badges on wings to sumthin different, hopefully clean the look up. Ordered a single wiper kit, but neighbour had to take delivery for me and now on holiday so will have that next time im back. Also got new interior trims for doors etc to replace wood, lookin to do a custom paint job but not sure what yet, ponder over that in meantime. Bigger mods to come soon, once i sell another car i have. Cheers.:rock:

Its always the simple things that make them look best. I too had the same dilema with the repeater, and in the end i went crystal clear, as the LED ones looked funny and the Clear ones looked like erect n*pples.

She looks good mate me likey

Cheers mate.

Wot kind of repeaters do you have then, standard clear oem look? Do you have a pic? The ones i fitted are crystal type with the filter, never liked the look of the led type, too over the top lookin.

Don't get ripped off for clear sides. My local car modding place wanted £18 for a set, Halfrauds wanted £16. A trip to Euro Car Parts had me with a pair for just about £5.

Nice mods.. looking good.

I had the same with a set of side repeaters and the profile was too bulky. I replaced them with a set from Awesome GTI but can't remember how much they were (couple of years ago).

Coming on nicely.

Like the grille...!

Right, after a bit of scouring i managed to find the more normal profile crystal clear side repeaters thanks to Byzan A4, cheers mate. Prefer these as they compliment the facelift front lights better than standard clear/whites. Set of excellent condition facelift rears due here tomorrow aswell, so all lights will be cleared up soon. Got the single wiper kit aswell now, but seeing as its pi$$ing down here today doubt i'll get it fitted soon. Also waiting on a set of S4 style sideskirts in post after ordering them at weekend, not genuine Audi but that doesnt matter as i dont plan on fitting them like standard S4 look. Off again tonight to work so prob wont have an update for a week or 2, but more parts will be ordered by then, keep u's posted!:kissmyrings:

Single wiper conversion for the A4 - I'd be interested to see how this looks (and works!)

I personally don't think a single wiper conversion suits the B5, or indeed any modern car with semi-concealed wipers.

Probablt works best on an older car, like a Golf I / II, or Escort III / IV where the wipers are mounted externally (non-recessed).

Well, another wkend home, and plenty of parts starting to gather now, excellent. Unfortunately, not a lot of time to work on car due to only being back a couple of days and having to spend sum time with family, so slow progress at this stage.

Started with removing the rest of the rear towbar that was fitted, as it was an audi specific fit unit, it uses a new rear bumper bar with the towing section as part of it, so now on the look out for a standard rear bumper bar if anybody has one??? So rear bumper is staying off for time being.

I also fitted the facelift rear lamps that i dug up, which were in great condition.

Before i found the facelifts, i had an idea for modding the original rear lights which i still completed although ive now fitted the new ones. But after seeing how they turned out, im really impressed with them, went for the all red look like newer Audi models.

After

Couple of coats of laquer to give a nice finish and really like them, not tried them on the car, but think they would suit a red or black car best. Not decided wot to do with them, might try them on at sum point, or could be swayed to sell them for a good offer, wot u think???

Away for another fortnight tomorrow, so by time im back i should have taken delivery of a nice new front bumper, and few more bits and pieces, more updated soon people!:racer:

Good job on the lights, give it a go on the car. Did you use normal red car paint 1st before the laquer?

No mate, was just a tin of red tint spray for lights, just like watered down paint really so they still emit light etc. Took a couple of slow build up coats to get the red to match the sides of the units, then all over, and 2 coats of lacquer to bring up a shiny finish and protect them. Really came up good, didnt expect to get the red a match all over!

Okay, started at dismantling my wiper system etc, to then transfer components over to single kit, but looks to be wrong type...:keule:So awaiting response on returning for correct part.
Weather isnt so good so not getting much done, but did try one of the red rear light lenses back in to see how they look, i like the look of it.

Custom rears

If weather holds up tomorrow i'll look at fitting the pair and wait till the bumper is back on till i decide which i prefer. Currently working on the side wing badges to give a new look instead of plain Audi badge, will get pics up when theyre done!

Well as i wont be changing wings etc at the moment, i decided on doing sumthing with the badges under the indicators, looking plain and dated now.

Picture315.jpg


Picked up sum very fine metal badges on the bay el cheapo!

Picture316.jpg


Started by using a grinder to get rid of lip on badges and take sum of the bevel out of them

Picture317.jpg


Once smoothed off with wet n dry, they were coated in primer

Picture318.jpg


Then painted in Satin Black for the new base

Picture319.jpg


Then the new badges applied ready for a lacquer coat to protect them

Picture320.jpg


After about 3-4 coats of lacquer, job done

Picture322.jpg

Picture323.jpg


Just need some backing foam to then put between badges and wing when re-installing. Not amazing, but should clean up the look and are a bit different to originals.

Back again. More stuff to clutter up house with since ive been away.

Was gonna do a custom paint job or sumthin on interior trims, but ended up finding this stuff, so now goin this route.

Its carbon fibre cloth, very nice looking and very easy to shape and work with. Will be doing sum bits n pieces with it soon.

Some S4 sideskirts patiently waiting, bodywork is on hold till i get the Audi in the garage, Cosworth is still there at the moment, so until i decide wot to do with it or sell it i'll just be gathereing parts ready to start it.

Picture329.jpg


Carbon fibre look gearknob and new leather gaitor, supposed to be red stitched, waiting on correct replacement coming

Picture330.jpg


Finally got the smaller side repeaters after long postage delay, and some white led bulbs for number plate lights

Picture331.jpg


Also, just managed to find a facelift bootlid so now waiting on that

Looking good - is there a way to delete that swage line / step on the bumper? That's the only aspect that'd I'd like to change, if it were going onto my car.
 

Foxmeister

Fired Up!
Cheers Siena!

Ive always thought this myself, think this was moulded on the later spec a4 bumper as this seems to have the same line. I have an idea of how to try delete it, but might be a lot of work in it, but seeing as im in no hurry, im definately going to attempt it. Will have a better idea when i recieve bumper, keep u's posted and will do a step by step if its possible to do.

Hows the V8 progress, you must be itching to get it out and about???

V8's going well, I'm waiting for a second 16" Kenlowe fan to be delivered - runs way too hot with just the single set-up.

Good stuff, look forward to more updates from Outlaw then!:icon_thumright:

Ok, been keeping things under wraps for a while, but seeing as this is a build thread i suppose i better start revealing some planned mods.

Well, being a Recaro lover i couldnt go with any other seats, and after seeing everybody choosing the Pole Positions which look great, i decided on going different and keeping a reclining seat for the car instead of fixed back. So im goin for Recaro Speed seats in Ambla black leather to match rest of interior.
Speed_KLS.gif

Sometime nearer end of the year i imagine i'll get these.

Also, decided on a set of wheels that probably havent been fitted to an A4 yet, that i know of, but still seeking information etc on them at the moment to see if this is going to be possible. Dare Drift RS wheels
dare_rs_black.jpg

I like the deeper centre look of the wheels, will find out soon hopefully if these are possible.

S4 sideskirts to be fitted, but will be removing the lower weather strips from doors, looks too cluttered and prefer skirts themselves.
Sorry, best pic i could find!
audia4progis4fl0.jpg


Theres going to be a mix of carbon fibre parts on outside and inside, going for an oem/track hybrid look. Firstly, ive went for a carbon spoiler for rear
AD-A4-002C_AB_Carbon_rear_Spoiler.jpg


I also have a carbon diffuser for rear in mind, but is meant for a B7 S4 so would have to go twin exit exhaust for this which i already had in mind, but now thinking maybe late S4 rear with single exit.....just means i wont have the diffuser to compliment the spoiler, still debating this one, opinions welcome aswell.

Also thinking of a carbon fibre bonnet vent from a Mitsibushi Evo, no the massive one, the smaller scoop to the side of it.
BTRzdQBmkKGrHgoOKj8EjlLmVnmBKHnQ68S.jpg


Other small bits n pieces in between but will update them as i go. Presently working on sum homemade carbon fibre door and dash trims, will get the progress up soon! Cheers.

Okay, still slow progress due to work and weather. Anyway, managed to finally get the single wiper grafted in, i say grafted as after waiting wks for help from manufacturer on paperwork that wasnt included i bit the bullet and altered a few bits to get it to fit, had i known it wouldve been such hassle id have left it, but seeing as i paid for it and can be quite determined i just got on with it. Have to re-drill the mounting point on the plastic scuttle so once its looking good i'll get a pic up.

Found a facelift bootlid described as good condition, but when arrived the usual bootlock plate was badly corroded and a nice big dent in the curve of the bootlid meant it was useless to me
Picture332.jpg


So i'll just hang onto my own and deal with the very small dent and maybe do something with the swage line on it.

Finally got my smaller side repeaters fitted with new wing badges i made up
Picture336.jpg

Will get some pics of these when i can as car hasnt moved in a bit. Also sourced a standard rear bumper bar and fitted bumper again with both of the red rear lenses, although may have a new rear bumper to replace it aswell, find out soon.

Ready to start work on deleting the swage line on the RS4 bumper next and also some custom carbon fibre parts, updates and pics to follow.
