Yep that's a broken cable from inside the seat. The one that lets the seat fold forward. I wonder sometimes if this car is actively fighting me.



I have a new one that you can have. PM me if you want it.

Hello Rob

I am a friend of Danny and Zac and admire your car everytime it turns up at the Kohls.

Your persistence will pay off and you certainly inspired me.

I am keen on quattros ever since meeting Walter Roerhl back in Germany in the 80's and watching the rally circuit in those days.

Its my dream car as well and I finally bit the bullet and now there is another car in your neighbourhood.

The detailing has begun!



Test fitting the rings and pinstripes. This is after one of three stages of polishing, and the phone pic really doesn't do it justice. Finer Details NZ are doing an amazing job.



Some from my real camera.
I am so excited about how good this looks, and there's three more stages of polish and coating still to go.
Finer Details NZ are detailing wizards

This just arrived (from Sheffield via my dad).
Hoping it will work! It's from a 1987 Nissan Bluebird so it has different wiring but I've found a pinout diagram. Good job because all the wires are black or red.

I went over to Finer Details NZ to add the Audi rings and pinstripes. I decided to just go with the double centre stripe on the sides.
