Good to see this getting sorted.

It's a nice, clean & original looking car.

I'm 95% sure that it was in a lock-up garage next to one of mine last year.

Judging by the moss it looks like it’s been sitting outside for a while. Lock up in the Glenrothes area?

Persevered with this when time's allowed me to do so.

I've remembered another reason why I pay others for bodywork, it's bloody time consuming!

Mirror backs, front wing trims, front panel (above bumper) door handles (which are a giggle to get back in place in a Coupe) and wiper arms done so far.









Slight colour shift for the new paint under flash/artificial light but looks fine in daylight.

Pile of bits building up



Went for a full set of KYB Excel - G shocks. These are the 'go to' shock for Subaru's (I've got a set on my WRX) and they are excellent, they are gas filled rather than the oil ones on my 90, I'm looking forward to seeing if there's a noticeable difference (I'll be disappointed if there's not).

Door trims just about done, again time consuming with the worst of it being cleaning them to this stage



First one almost done, second one at the same stage minus the wood/pocket.



Went to do the cabin filter and realised that being a B3 it doesn't have one. However it did have a completely blocked drain on that side, there's so much crud you can't even see the drain......



Rotor arm, distributor cap, plugs and oil pressure sender all done. Rotor was very worn with at least 2mm being worn off of the top.

Good work.

.........regarding cabin filter, is it not because it has or has not got A.C. that will decide if it has/has not got a cabin filter?...........my B3 was spec'd with AC but as it doesn't work I've never gone looking for a filter ......I'll get round to it one day.

My understanding is that the cabin filter came in with the B4, which I should have remembered as I retrofitted the filter housing to mine.

D’oh!!

Audi Coupe, the car that just doesn't stop giving on the shopping opportunity front!

Idle valve seized rock solid, no movement whatsoever, however it does explain the low idle.

New one ordered.
