      That's pretty much what this is, I just haven't taken any new pictures to update the thread with.

      I'll take some tonight, but I have gotten all my interior put in, tore the Reiger skirts off in pieces and threw them away, I have swapped the front out to my ST coils and put my sawblades on the front so far.

      I have replaced the timing belt tensioner (it was all done 3k before it got wrecked, but the tensioner was acting funny from sitting a full year. I bought a new coolant res and cap, bought new coil packs, bought an ECU, new dipstick and tube, o rings for all the sensors, o ring for the coolant housing at the head and the hard pipe into the housing, bought all new C clips to hold the sensors in. I have bought all the missing engine pieces, EXCEPT for the engine harness, which I am waiting on making a deal with someone on these forums.

      Nic is bringing me up a few smaller items that I need as well, on Friday.

      Horns were kicked a tad bit, so instead of pulling them, which they'd be weak.. i have a set coming in the mail that i will fish-plate from the inside when I went them on. Waiting on my engine harness from Pat (pzp), which should be here Monday.



      I got the interior all cleaned up and reinstalled using various parts around the shop that I had laying around. I only needed a couple minor things from "blacky".



      Sorry the interior shot is dark. I had it lightened up and edited and everytime I saved it, even under a different name, it would still just save the original. Stupid PS.





      Gotta get this recoded to the 72k that is on the car. This is an 00 s4 cluster.



      A special little gift I bought for the car.... Now I have unlimited music!

      Good progress, I like the interior. I need to find somebody who wants a perfect black pleather interior and is willing to swap haha. Any plans for wheels other than the sawblades?

      I had a nasty wiring issue that caused some delays for the last 4 or so days. I got it fixed last night and now its back to getting it together. I just need to put the front end on it and swap out the rear suspension/wheels and start her up.
