Got the whole car primed and blocked out, ready for color. Decided not to reshoot it in Tornado red (didn't want to jamb it or redo bay) but after all this work I said screw it and decided on Lamborghini grigio telesto grey pearl. I like Nardo, but its a tad too light for me, this is a good compromise.

It is not tri stage, a lot of lambo is, but I chose it because its not lol. it has a lot of flop, it gets pretty damn dark in low light, or it changes on body lines really nicely.

I was just gonna say that (about photo bucket being lamerz lol) but that engine shot looks real good. I like the color choice. Threads like this are making me want the 5 cyl symphony again!!

Thanks, just building doors now, got new moulding clips coming from the UK and new door handles. took some pics outside as the sun finally came out. Also sprayed the trunk black, even tho the inlay covers the red. I used a sound deadening kind of chip seal stuff. cant hurt.

Got the Spoiler re-taped and installed
Image

Got bumper and some lights in
Image

Got the trunk built out and all lights in and wired.
Image

Got all the rocker trim installed (pain in the ass)
Image

Refurbished my grill. This stuff is awesome, called trim black from SEM finishes so nice. scotch brited the grill and painted it. I will be removing the plasti dip from around the window frames and redoing them in this. I redid some allroad flares in this stuff two years ago and it still looks awesome.
Image

Starting on the front end during my lunch hour (work at the body shop) All new door handles will be here today, then I can finish building the doors.

got the doors built, and front put together. Man I wish I had some euro lights... I hate these ones.

Gonna pull the dash again to make installing the windshield a tad easier. My plastic trim in the windshield and back glass seal, are shrunken, and don't meet how they should. anyone know of anything universal that will lay in the seal and look good?

Grigio Telesto is such an awesome color, looks good man! I almost went with a color from the Lamborghini palate but I couldn't get away from damn Oceanic Blue.

Looks amazing. Loving it without the door/side moldings. Definitely needs a ride height tweak, but sounds like you're on it.

Been doing some small stuff, the cluster illumination went out, was down to last bulb si I did some SMD LEDs
Image
Image

much better at night, and still has a lot of dimmer function.

Then I wanted the rest of the controls to have that nice and vivid red back lighting like the newer audi's. so I ordered some 3mm and 5mm 12v leds. and did the hvac panel and awd panel

Image
Image
Image

Didn't get after pics of the awd panel. I also opened all the switches and soldered led in those too. once I have some nice night pics I will post em.

Pissed off as well, my dash started getting really shakey... so for the 4th or 5th time I pulled it all out, and found I tightened the two 10mm studs going though fire wall too much and they snapped off of the dashboard. so I removed them and used body panel epoxy to bond in two new studs. Cured that issue right up. Now im chasing a water issue. I had about half inch of water in my glove box. The new windshield seal is nice and tight, cant be sunroof drains. they are free flowing and not broken. guessing its coming around the heater box in the rain tray. those drains are clear, but I don't have the water deflector in yet.
