Prologue (Part No.1):

Over the Winter of 2007-08, while my friend Aaron was converting his Lago Blue Coupe (seen often at shows with the Borbet Type A's), I had desided, given I always wanted a Coupe, that I was going to start my own and of course build it bigger and badder! Searching the classifieds and Craigslist, I finally chose to buy an unmolested, running, driving, Tornado Red, 1990 CQ from my friend Brett whom bought the car from Emre aka 'Yummyjager' with the same intentions, but who wasn't ready for a project. So, in ~April 2008 I was the proud new owner, trailered her home from Kingston, New York and started to plan out my route of action.

Given my financial situation and history on how I have been able to afford those past projects, I thought it best to store the car, gather parts, and prepare for the long Winter months. I then bought an AAN from my good friend Eric aka 'Mange3586' (he had bought Emre's S4 for the 6-speed RS2 transmission and was recoving the cost, so I bought the motor, head, and a few accessories, but no ECU harness, turbo, or manifold), I also acquired an 01E 5-speed for towing a friend home, and gathered what I could in the way of parts and information.

In July, following my grandfather asking me to move the car from our barn for a few days while he got lumber out, a freak and severe thunderstorm rolled through. Not showing the car with leaves, breaking a branch, but uprooting a 12inch diameter Locus which then landed across the roof.
Image

Image

Fired up the ol' John Deere 80EV Chainsaw, romantically known as 'the butter knife' (my grandfather cleared many of building lots with it prior to passing it down), sawed up and off as much of the tree as I could, leaving a section small enough that I could lift (I am always stuck working alone), I tripped on the cut wood, put the 'just shut off' ol' brakeless chainsaw into my leg! Slowed me down for about an hour or so, since the damage squirted blood more than leaked it (and in the picture I had wiped well and slowed the bleeding down with pressure), but was able to walk back to the house, visit a few friends that drive the town's ambulance, borrow a suture kit, stitch up the wound, and get back to the back barn, and take a closer look at the coupe's roof.
Image

Image

Fact is, tree wasn't even mine, on my property but given the fact I tried to be nice to the neighbor, I opted to not go the nasty route and to ask. From asking them to look into their insurance, getting a body shop estimate of $5000 if I bought the roof section, and then getting turned down, another plan had to be devised. At this point, most would have definitely waved the white flag, given up, and parted the car, but I am far too stubborn for that.

You will all eventually come to realize the project name is quite suited. I actually started out with the car, pre-events, as it "Project FeO2" (Ferrous Oxide or Fool's Gold), then "Project Hard Luck", but...

Prologue (Part No.2):

I chose to find another shell. Through the same course of action, I was able to work a pretty sweet deal on a non-running (failed attempt to complete a timing belt), 1991 Pearlesant White CQ in Delaware. So, in ~November 2008 I saddled up the truck and trailer once again, called a close friend and fellow tow truck operator, "Camel Towing Jay", pulled an all nighter, and drove down to Delaware and back. Sure I became the proud new owner of a CQ filled with parts and cartons of cheap cigarettes we had bought, but this trip alone has a whole other hilarious story packed with ~clap~ "so this is how it's going to be" negociations, directions that included going "sKraight", hitch hiking hippies, and making it home in 4 hours, LOL.

In February 2009, after the smoke of the holidays and January birthdays had cleared, tear down into the pearl coupe, welding all the engine bay seams (for a shaved and smoothed bay. Weld, grind, weld, grind...), and looking things over only brought disappointment. One night the Toy Maker happened to stop over, look things I had been doing over, and discovered that this car had a pretty tweaked frame rail. SH1T! (*You can just about see the bulge and dent in the frame rails, near the motor mount brackets, in the pictures below... even around the grinding marks)

Image

Image

So, the story starts off on a simple question... Quit while you are ahead, put the roof of the red car onto the white car, or put the front frame rail and inner fenders from the red car into the white car? A night at the bar, determined not to quit, having a friend ("The Toy Maker") who's father had owned a body shop and just graduated from Wyotech, and having the title (in hand) for the red car, the decision was easy...

I'd love to see more, too, especially since it's a stroker with a 35r!

So, the project was about to really, really start...

I had the 1991' Pearl Coupe already in the barn, the engine bay was stripped down (don' let anyone tell you that removing the engine harness from the firewall is easy!), and I wasted plenty of time wasted in learning how 'shave the bay'.
Image

It was time to fire up the Tornado 90', drive her up to the barn, and get them both fully stripped and ready for body work.
Image

So, that weekend I climbed up to the high dive and dove in head first. The thing fired right up too! Drove her up to the barn, pulled it into another bay, and started with the standard fluid drain, motor pull (to have some 7A parts to sell), and followed that with an interior strip on both of the cars, as not to damage as much with the roof sectioning.
Image

(Yes, that's a cast on my hand. Around the same time, my father had closed a garage door on the B5 S4, it dragged down the trunk and rear bumper, and yeah... didn't apologize and blamed me for leaving the door open, all I needed was a 'sorry'. It was his face or the side of the barn, pole barn won, especially with the 8"x8" stud behind the board and batten)

I would like to know where you got the Siemens injectors from. 80# is a nice injector size. Ebay? Can you provide a link? Nice project, it will be one of the nicest coupes out there for sure. Stop punching walls! All that does is hold us up on seeing the rest of your project :D

No, no, no... we stopped at a gas station on the way home and pretty much filled the car. It was definitely an eventful ride back to New York; Meeting you all, negociations, stopping for cigarettes, trying to find a Checkers in the heart of the ghetto in Wilmington (got directions from a chick that was so ghetto'd out that she looked like a dude and said 'baby you's gots to go sKraight'), hitch hikers that needed a ride in Jersey, and blowing home in less than 5 hours!

So, now both the cars were stripped, or at least for the most part. I had the complete interior, glass, and whole shooting match pulled from the tornado Coupe, discovering that this was no 'hammer-out' dent in my roof.
Image

On the pearl Coupe I had the headliner, grab handles, trims, sunroof, and related pulled, but left the carpet and seats since this chassis wasn't going to be seeing the welding that the other was.

My next step, as directed from my friend the 'Toy Maker' and body work tutor, was to remove the seam sealer, paint, primer, and expose all of the factory welds (on both cars) so we could see how the Krauts glued these things together, then mark out where we planned to cut. They did a pretty damn good job building these things, if you ask me, there was a gagilion squeeze type resistance spot welds, panel adhesive on the roof stiffener bars, and brazed the corners of the front and rear windshield areas.

Of course there was some fun stuff too. He and I worked a few nights, and let me tell you... one, I have never seen a car cut apart so fast (neatly) and two, boy did I get well aquainted with the Blair/Spot-weld drill bit, but we are NOT best friends! It was necessary though, with my attention to detail, being a perfectionist, and wanting the car done correctly, so after making a pearl white speedster Coupe, I drilled my little heart out on both the tornado Coupe and the roof section. I had to think before drilling too (hard after a long day at the work and in the cold as barn), managing to only remove the skin and rear support from the tornado Coupe and vise versa on a the roof section.

I would like to know where you got the Siemens injectors from. 80# is a nice injector size. Ebay? Can you provide a link? Nice project, it will be one of the nicest coupes out there for sure. Stop punching walls! All that does is hold us up on seeing the rest of your project :D

After addressing the bent parts, drilling all the spot welds, and getting a pure roof skin/section with the necessary cross members, I was able to Cleko the new skin to the car (understand that I never intended on any of this and along with Cleko pins and pliers, have more autobody specific tools than I ever wanted to add to the inventory). So, pre-welding on the new skin I had an opportunity to address some other areas requiring attention and repair. These areas included a dime sized hole in the frame rail where the battery vent tube had spewed acid into an area of grease, dirt, and yuck where is was able to do some damage (Look... See the hole? Yeah, right through!). So, with the pearl Coupe a blaintant parts car and body panel donor, I went at it with the sawzall and got myself a nice section of rail, but would be using a 10th of it.

Another area was the front to the frame/radiator support that was a little bit bashed and twisted in a fender bender, didn't much affect anything, but why not fix it and make it look nice, nice? Once again, with the pearl Coupe a blaintant parts car and body panel donor, I went in search of what I needed, irony is the color... should have been a hint from the start that there were some body issues on the car.

Well past that at this point, but the thought did pass through my mind prior to realizing that making a driveshaft would be a b1tch.
