I must be crazy..........

Well after my 84 urq project I decided to build a sport quattro.

My good friend's Martin Pajak and Mike Hopton are planning on building
replica's , so not wanting to be left out, I decided that I was going to build one
also.

The basis for my build is my old 4000 quattro. This car has served me well for over
10 years, so I decided this is going to be the platform to build from.

I haven't seen anybody build a sport quattro from a 4000 quattro before, so I guess I may be
the first to use the complete 4000 floorpan for the build.

Pro's and con's of using the 4000 quattro floorpan.

Pro's:
The windshield angle is already correct

The car already has a 5 bolt conversion

Seeing as we don't get type 85 coupe quattro's over here, and I didn't have a urq to cut up, this would have to work.

Con's :

I still have to find a 2 door roof and doors.

The "b " pillar is going to have to be moved.

I have to find a coupe gt for the rear sheet metal.

I'm really pumped about this project, stay tuned for updates......

Cheers,

Craig Cook,
Tartan Motorsports and Fabrication.

The plan is to build 3 of them

Martin Pajak is bulding his, Mike Hopton is going to be building his.
and .....well I didn't want to be left out.

There's no competition amongst us Canucks.............much

Poor Sally, she's served you well, if she becomes an SQ it is a fitting end.

LOL, you need to go and drive that around the block!

Few years ago a friend of mine and I parted out B4 90. We took off hood, all 4 doors, trunk lid, bumpers and I think even front fenders...and went for a drive around his neighbourhood....the weirdest stares from people I've ever seen!

Need some Pillars? When I'm done with the CGT, I should have lots of leftovers body parts. I'd be glad to donate these parts to any of the sport quattro projects. Its for a good cause.
John,

We need to get together for a beer.

I know you need part of the roof for your cool urq project.

What I need is the whole car from about 6 inches in front off the
b pillar all the way back......so half the car really minus the floor pan.

I don't need the part you need....I think.

Beer would be a good idea......I'll bring my urq and you can take it
for a spin.

Cheers,

Craig

The only thing I really need from my Coupe GT is the front clip. I'm sure my URQ is rotten under the front fenders. As far as the roof goes, I don't need any of the inner bracing. I can straiten the bracing on my URQ. If I did need anything off the rear roof section, it would be the skin only. If you want the back half, consider it yours. I can't wait to see a sport quattro!

John,

That would be great.

I'll bring the beer.
