Nice,
I want to run (if I can find them) 15" 5 stud Ronals. Can I press out the 4 stud hub and press in the 5 stud hub?

If he's staying 4 stud he needs 4 x 108.Those are 4 x 100 unfortunately....

I would like to go to 5x112 but that depends on if I can press out the 4x108 hubs and press in the 5x112 hubs and if the 5 studs hubs are available.

You can use the rear hubs from a b5 quattro. The only thing is they have 8mm more offset on them so require the use of the correct rotors, you can also modify c3 front struts like what the ur used

What parts have people for a 86 Typ85 Audi Coupe quattro?, I need twin filament Cibie headlights (also fitted to Audi Coupe GT), smoked rear tail lights, rear boot wing, 4x108 14"  Ronal's or (preferably) 5x112 15" Ronal's. (maybe fitted to some Audi 80 20valves?).










I have fishnet Recaro seats from a Isuzu Bighorn (look remarkably similar to the seats that used to reside in the quattro) but need seat mounts to adapt to the Recaro seats.

I vaguely remember years ago that the bighorn seats weren't suitable for transplanting into cars. Something to do with the upright stance in the bighorn. May have simply been the mounts/runners rather than the seats themselves. Might want to check out fitment before you go too far

Classic Quattros have started making reproduction smoked tail lights if you can't find any here.

I still have the boot spoiler from the GT I stripped, somewhere in my garage!

and this guy has front folding seats for a mk1 and mk2 golf that would suit what you need to do until you source something better?

Cheers for the help.
I definatly need to find a donor, I fear being nickel and dimed to death otherwise.
I also need a sunroof and fittings.

Rob, I would be interested, does the spoiler take to being painted?, the spoiler on my car was body colour and I would like it to remain so.

It's plain rubber but the one on my urq was painted, so it can be done.
One of the cars at Smash Palace had a sunroof last time i went a year ago. The car was covered in lichen and stuff but looked solid.

Dad said he could take a fiberglass mold from the sunroof I have, he said either that or make one out of mdf or plywood.
