Get someone to tow the Quattro using the A4. Then you can sit in the UR and pretend that all is well in the world  8)

Thanks to Wellington European for the loan of their smoke tester. It pointed me straight to the seal that I have totally left out. Not sure how that happened!











 It runs much better and will warm start. Got an exhaust leak at the waste gate and it's still dripping oil when warm, and there are a couple of heat shields rattling. So I have work to do.

With all these troubles.......at least you have a ur quattro, how many people can say that?.
Sure beats working on some nondescript japanese car.

Exactly! It is my dream car and I will drive it.
Though it was potentially getting sold recently as I've separated from my wife and we were splitting stuff.
Managed to sort it so I could hang onto the car.

That's never good news.  :(

Good thing she didn't get a grinder out and split the Audi down the middle.
When I was a kid, parent's of a mate of mine split up. She insisted that they get an even split....The dad was a tree feller.  He took a chainsaw to everything they owned and cut it all in half.

Oo that's a bit extreme. We have had a very amicable split, so nothing like that was happening.
But the split is part of the reason that things are moving so slowly with Rusty.
I fired it up this weekend and the metal shield between the block and the cam gear is rubbing on the gear. I tried to bend it a bit in place and made it worse, then my daughter lost a critical piece of Lego so I had to leave the car alone :D
Very tempted to just get it transported to Wellington European and get them to finish things off.

Maybe just time to let the dust settle so you can regain your mojo for the build.
