Well guys and girls

The G60 will be under going a full on restroration after the driver project has been completed early next year.

I have already started to collect a few bits for her so i have all the parts ready to fit, rather than waiting like i have the driver.

The plan is to strip the car to a bare shell and have the body restored professionally to standard, the engine will be sent away to be fiddled, the interior will be cleaned and hopefully retrimmed in the standard edition one cloth, but this is proving hard to find. The boot will be returned to standard and the ICE hidden.

work to be done

Engine:

1.9 re-bore
CNC big valve cylinder head
shrick cam
flowed manifolds
65mm pulley
live mapped
basically rebuilt to 1.9 spec pushing out 250 - 270 bhp
every seal, bearing and nut replaced

body:

Entire shell acid dipped to removed all paint, underseal etc
all damage and rust repaired
repainted in standard swartz metalic black

chassis:

all subframes, ARB's, driveshafts etc powder coated
new S/S brake lines

the car will be mint

aim to spend less than 10k

So far picked up genuine arch rivets and a stainless steel bolt kit so i can change most bolts on the car for non rusting versions

cheers

Have i told you guys about the change of plan

well everything will happen to the body and chassis bt i changed my mind about the engine.

16vG60 is now the order of the day.

collected a few bits and bats to start me off, some very hard and expensive to find.

rear brake pressure regulator


alternator relocting brackets


BBM crank pulley


adjustable cam pulley


Genuine Scirocco 16v inlet manfold


Fuel rail


and it fits the manifold a treat


got a KR engine i'm getting in 3 weeks and a magnex 16v 4 branch exhaust manifold

will keep you guys in the loop as i get more bits or strip her out.

well with the driver project having come to an end i thought it be a good idea to start on the G60.

The idea is to have a 16VG60 Edition One by the end of march next year.

I am really worried i will get things wrong so i have labeled every single electrical connection, and bagged and tagged every single nut, bolt and washer. All the nuts and bolts will be replaced with stainless steel ones or zinc plated were i cant get replacments.

engine has been pulled (my mate thought it would look good with a audi employee in the pic) Rolling Eyes



most of the interior is out along with the dash and the front suspension is in bits.

Currently colllecting all the bits that need cleaning, blasting and powdercoating to get the rolling front chassis put together so i can turn the car around and do the back end, when all thats done it will go off to be repaired and paint.

will keep you all updated
