OK, I will get more pics of the steering setup when the front end comes off again.

Here are the side skirt brackets. The underside of the car is so dented and tweaked the the best solution in my mind to just glue them on :) If they ever come off, I will add some rivets, but this glue is not going anywhere!
Image

Image

Final resting spot, not I can build the fenders to mate up.

Image

The aftermath

Image

Now onto the rear control arms! The arm on the right is as they come from 034. The arm on the left has been spaced as far back as possible with spacers and rod end adjustment, and I added rubber boots to the rod ends. This is to re-center the wheel in the larger arch.

Image

Random event of the day, WTF??

Image

Ended the day here. Made blanks to cover the factory bumper mounting holes. Now I just have to mate these two together and the rear S2 bumper mounts will be taken care of.

Nice Jim. It looks like you moved the rocker in compared to your other pics...or is it just the picture angle. Doesn't look like you are gaining that much from this angle.

It is less than the previous pic, but I think it is just enough to make it work. It adds about 1" over the stock rocker.

I actually took another pic of spidey because they bunny was in this one, but now I think the bunny is the funniest part!

LOL. That picture tells a story!! I can see you under the car, gluing your rockers and have a bunny creep by. You get out from under the car to pet the bunny, and he trots off to expose SpiderMan getting out of his pre-Runner. Making no attempt to hide your Iphone, you extend you giant wingspan and take a shameless picture of the guy in the Spidey suit. He glances over and notices you, then scurries into the brush for a getaway....

Somebody's kid was having a birthday party. Spiderman was the main attraction and the dad was running late and having trouble putting the suit on...meanwhile, the magician was able to make the rabbit disappear, but couldn't make him reappear. The rabbit was simply making a run for it.

I really like that Dutter guy. He made his own control arms too.
Looks like he is a very good fabricator, talanted programer and a good driver.

Nice! Those look like my A6 4.2 flares, I wonder if that is what he based them off of. I like the bumper detail, gives me some simple ideas to match the fender.

So the Huntington Beach US Open of Surfing is this week and I can either spend tomorrow at the beach with the most unbelievable scenery on the planet, or hit the garage and fenders.... This pic is very motivating, but HB during the open, :drool:
