My father 22 years ago in german bought a white Vw Santana 1982. My first look wtf? Audi 80? The car was really good shape, engine 1.6 Diesel. I dont have much pics with that car. The car was made almost 310 000 miles without problems.
After a lot of years I had accident.
I didnt have a car to drive so i found in 2004 vw passat trophy prod.1987.
Really clean, car had some places with rust. But not big deal. Engine 1,6 four cylinders. Gasoline.
The Passat trophy didnt have a equipment like Quantum has, and engine was to small for me.
One time i see announcement about VW Passat 2.3 5 cyl. 1987 y. After talking it turned out that car is Quantum
The car looked really bad, noises from the engine, everywhere was oil, problems with starting, whole equipments didnt worked. But i'm still interest
On 2006y i started project
I have to prepare mounts for the engine. I cut some from the front because 5cyl was to long..
I made a lot of holes for AC and cables but like in oryginal.
I sandblast engine, suspension parts, engine chamber and a few things.
Front suspension are KONI with hardness regulation and they are short and thick.
Rear supension are from mk2 golf H&R
I change almost everything in the engine: new bearings, rings, gaskets, hydraulics pushers and more...
October 2008 quantum to scrap.
In the meantime i had problems with water inside car after rain.
I made temporary.
I leave a roof from black Quantum so i started with that f... rust.
Later i made roof maintenance.
I checked with water, and i can say now its working
The paint was ok but didn't perfect so i started again with preapering and painting.
I had one week before my weeding and i put together whole parts in to my car
Will be more more. Bigger wheel something 16 9J with stretched tires. Maybe the car will go more down, i have to finish AC, i dont have one pipe from compresor, another exhaust and more chrome on the engine.
I would like to say thanks for JohnBarleyCorn and rest people who they help me to get parts.
