Shame I wont see it at Newbury this time round..

Keeping it silver, or changing colour?
Alps

Go on Carl, you might as well go the whole way and get it sprayed in white?
H8CAK

No no Just a reflick in silver down both sides. Colour change far too involved.
Alps

Just buy a shite load of tipex and get to work on it yourself!

+1 for 'No white'
IMHO i dont think white does a car any justice.

You could always do a car in white Cannonball Run 2 stylee (the Lambo at the start), then hose it off when you get bored!

Skip to 3:02 if you don't want to watch the bestest film intro to the bestest film in the whole wild world evaaaa!!!!

Quality stuff Carl. Do you know how much work needs doing to the  rear inner arches? Seeing this is making me want to take an angle grinder to my car!

Can't wait to see it. Did you say you were getting YET another set of alloys for it?
H8CAK

oooh sounds nice. was wondering about the clocks....you gonna get the rs4 one or keeping the s4 one? was toying with this on mine but only had a new one put in about 18months ago so will be keeping it for now....until the dis starts going on this one as well!

did you say it will be done soon?!? thats bloody quick!

 

Ash
H8CAK

Yeah, Aidan reconed that the rears take Aprox 7 days to do. Then i get the car back and it goes to my mate who is local and has sprayed all the front pannels. We will fit the front end in a couple of days and get the both sides blown in again. As for the RS4 clocks im not sure its possible as our cars are prefacelift. Im sure its only possible if you do the whole engine, ecu & wiring loom?
Could prob get some made tho as mine has the Analogue clock.
PaulyRS4

I am on the look fo the RS4 clocks but all i have found so far is just the clock faces on ebay for £70!
H8CAK




carpy

What!! The RS4 interior just slots straight in? How come I didn't know this before? Would be nice to update the centre console and clocks in mine.
H8CAK

Not clocks but everything else does, Apart from some of the wiring on the new buttons.
RS4Jules

Wow,its proper taking shape now,gonna be sweet
docurley

Liking the black roof docurley,i keep wondering what it would look like on my avus avant,Was it done in vinyl ?
H8CAK

Its going back to the body shop next week to be finnished but here she is for now........................











AdamS4

Nice

I can't get over how quick its taken !!
H8CAK

Its not as bigger job as some people make out!!! I went up to northampton yesterday @ 3pm with the doors and front wings, I was driving home before 9pm all fitted! Plus i sprayed the skirts in between
Aiden reconed that the rears could be done in about 3 days if working on them for all 3 days solid! Paint can take a little time to get right tho!
Adam

Awesome Carl Have you put spacers on the Kahns?
H8CAK

Yeah got 15mm on there now (knicked them off the S3) but want some 25mm in the end. Still got the old bumper on so once its all painted and fitted it will look much better
davs4

Quality result there mate

Will look better once everything is lined up right and painted  Aidan is a top fella. He stuck to his quote even tho it was a total pig of a job and even helped me fit the front end on his day off ( it got him out of shopping with his mrs ) I cant praise him enough. My car will defo be returning to him for the engine work
buzzard

Just out of interest (dont want to steel carls thread)

Who's was the Phat Imola yellow S4 at ADI last october???

2nd that.
H8CAK

Cant belive he sold his car tho
Jules

Guess he got bored after he'd finished it .... probably be doing a WB S8 next ...
H8CAK

I wouldnt put it past him
PaulyRS4

He is doing a another wide body B5 but this time it will be 700+ bhp the sale of the car was to fund the wild new engine and other odds and sods!!!!
bluebrakes

awesome h8cak. I shall be drooling at the next newbury meet.
Alps

No need to say how good it looks Carl Can't wait to see it in the flesh.

Love the aggressive look of the front with the total black grill.
James

Well done Carl. The car looks fantastic.
MarkB

Is it painted yet Carl???
H8CAK

Collecting it tonight i think? Cant get hold of my mate at the moment but sure it was tonight? Wont have bumper fitted but apart from that should be all painted.
H8CAK












This is where we are at close of play today. Left it in the spray booth ready for tomorrow morning  
frazered

looks really good with the RS6 alloys
H8CAK

Really? They are my track wheels with semi slick Yoko's. Just using them while bits are being done so i dont get my Kahn's knackered.

Exactly what I thought. I'd get them cleaned up and leave it the way it is. Job done.  
H8CAK

Cant live with 18's.............Way too small

I have to say I think it looks better with those wheels than the kahn's.

What offset, width and tyre sizes are they please??
loomx

I agree RS6 wheels look the mutts nutts... Get some in 19s
si_hill

Liking the RS6's, personally I reckon full red rear lenses would look better against the silver, like the look of Doug's Avus RS4.
H8CAK



Cant agree im afraid. Love my Kahn's. Plus the quality of the wheel is loads better than a replica wheel.

Red lenses.................Now there's a thought?
davs4

Prefer the Kahns too    

Red rear lights are tempting me also......did my Mk2 Golf years ago with Foliatec spray....might try the same on my RS  
Adam

Kahns look the dogs mate

Were Doug's lenses sprayed?
Paz

Yeah Gregg painted and lacquered the RS4 rear lenses

Get 'em in 19"s  then

Or what about putting on your old RS4's? Or are those sold?

Car looks lovely though Carl. Gotta give top credits for the amount of work you've put into it

Cool, thought they filled the arches well.

I take it they are an 8" rim? I plan to use 20mm spacers with my 8.5" rims @ 35mm offset.

The car also looks higher at the back than it used to?

Same ride height. 18's just look too small IMHO Dont fill the arches enough.
Ill be looking at 20's later in the year now i have the wider arches.
loomx

new RS6 wheels?
mikeyquattro

You know what he's like with his bling rims.......    
Jules

RS6 wheels look way better on your car IMO ... Kahns = too bling, just don't suit it, especially now it's been WB'd.

WB + RS6 wheels = proper 'ard!
loomx

agreed
H8CAK

Just cant see it myself. Dont like the Rs6's atall. Quite like the new Rs6 Wheels tho?
Jules

Wheels are a personal thing - each to their own I say. I f*cking love the Lambo wheels, but many others don't - do I care? NO, I like 'em, and haven't seen a better looking wheel for our cars IMO, and that's all that counts at the end of the day: personal choice.
loomx

I do really like the new RS6 wheels too, and you can get them in 20s... I think theres a pic somewhere with an RS wearing them...
