Brilliant! i think "bat shit crazy" is probably right enough!

ive been so close to Widebodying many times but i also have the "why hack up a good S4" fear

will watch with interest!


bat shit stupid i think. ive been looking around at all my "projects" that are normally in a million pieces and thinking im just an idiot having these motors i cant even jump in and drive... promised myself im changing all that tho!

i honestly love the widebodys but novelty serious ran out for me in a very quick fashion. if i hadnt bought an RS4 i was seriouslt contemplating reverting back to a normal bodied S4 and just really sorting it.

yeah stay tuned all happening soon!

Couple more hours progress today. Got all the bay and scuttle tray pretty much stripped...





Absolutely minging with dirt and soil and had to evict the moles and birds that were living in the soil and the nests.

i genuinely never understand what the appeal in a brand new car is but when you see the dirt and crud that has built up in an old car it fairly opens your eyes!

great project and progress

Wheeled it into the sunshine this evening and gave the dirty girl a good hose down. Pretty clean underneath all the years of gunk...

Haha it would if he had his way.

No unvery like me im going for a more "mature" theme with the colour, wheels, etc. More OEM+ than wild and custom look if you catch my drift. God knows why. Maybe im growing up lolhahaha (not likely).

I want this as a keeper so i want something that will age well and stay classic looking rather than something i decide i hate in a year or so time.

Been tied up past few weeks having to socialise has meant little progress on the RS4. I've now got two weeks only before my week in the bodyshop so best get my skates on.

New toy to make things easier. Going up....



Dropped the subframes and some other stuff off...



Almost ready to start working on its undercarriage...

Its no longer destined for my car but i spent today finishing my latest attempt at a widebody rs4 rear bumper. This is after 3 attempts, god knows how many hours, about 150 quid in adhesive and a few mental breakdowns.

However, i think ive finally cracked it. This is zero filler. Just ready for the bodyshop...





Hopefully its new owner gets some good use out of it.
