Coupe Quattro RestoMod
« on: May 18, 2017, 04:29:20 pm »
As a new member I thought I'd share my Coupe rebuild diary.
The target is a "restomod" tidy-up of the old girl.
Not too many external updates are planned, more turning her into a clean, reliable, and (hopefully) perky performer.
Most of the time is spent on running gear, electrics upgrade and interior revamp.

Not too far into it yet, but progressing well.

The patient:
1989 Audi Coupe Quattro - very poor condition when I got it.

The donor:
......  well this is not quite a bullet-point kinda target :)
Essentially the Coupe is accepting a new life from a B5 A4 1.8t quattro.
This includes:
The entire chassis wiring loom.
The Dash, dash frame, HVAC
The engine.
The engine harness.
The hubs and brakes.

Hi. Welcome
The best way to do images is to upload them to an external host like Photobucket or imgur. From there you can paste the links to here.
When you create a post you will see the Mona Lisa icon. Click on that and just paste your image URL between the image tags it creates
Should look a bit like this

I use Photobucket, but it's clunky and buggy on mobile devices. Gives impression no effort going in to development.

Couple Photos:

The Initial Strip-down of the Coupe:
Not unlike any other Coupe, she was FULL of water!!
No major rust unearthed, just normal around windscreen and rear quarter glass

Couple more photos:

Initial prep work round the engine bay.
Definitely not final!  Just a clean until I get all the new clips and brackets in place.

I'm deep into the wiring at the moment.

This (very important) part of the build is tooooooo boring to post photos off!

I'm converting the 4-door B5 loom to 2-door, but using the r/rear door circuit to drive the Coupe's sunroof.

Should have the loom trial fitted by the end of the month :|
