So far my shopping list, apart from all new fluids and stuff, is:

Boot gas struts
Sunroof seal
Wheel brace without hand-slicing peeling chrome
Rear brakes (haven't looked at fronts yet)

I have the boot stripped, all knackered speakers gone with associated wiring, back seat and rear cards removed, rear bumper and lights removed.
Mouse removed. :D

Seats and carpets out next then dash for a proper look at that wiring.

Just looking at this photo. Is the hole in the carpet on the transmission tunnel from an old car phone?

Haha I bet it is! Someone has taken serious liberties with the wiring in this car.

Thanks, have been browsing some of that one! Managed half an hour with the car this weekend before my 4 year-old daughter's helping stressed me out too much!

That's the best English language site I'm aware off. Sadly Phil passed away a few years ago but his family have allowed his site to stay up and it will probably be around for many years to come.

I've had a few opportunities to start stripping out the car this week.

Looks like both sides of the boot have had holes cut out and patched.

Holes from towbar!

The underside looks alright


Still can't believe I have a Quattro in my garage :D



I got the sunroof working. Very happy about that as it was jammed and I was worried.


Rusty bits


Started stripping the front
