Last friday i took the car up to Seattle to a buddy, to have some custom work done

plans include:

*Custom Boser hood+shave washer nozzles+full respray of hood
*Spray Passenger side fender (roomate rolled into it)
*respray passenger sideskirt
*remove dings/respray drivers rear qtr panel (someone knicked it)
*Spray roof BMW Sparkling Gray Metallic
*Spray Grille surround and grille rings BMW Sparkling Gray Metallic


i cant wait to get the car back and see how it looks!

i'm ordering new tires within the week so when i get the car back i will get those mounted, as well as commence the trunk build! :D

here are some pics of the progress so far on the hood

this is how he had originally did it, but i wanted it to flow a little better

so he grinded down some of the metal to give it a more aggressive look, and here is where it stands now

the blue laminx will be coming off of the headlights. i put it on about a week ago, and absolutely hate the way it looks, but decided to leave it on while he is doing metal work, to protect the headlights.

Nice! I didn't catch that. My bad, but awesome choice. You've always been had of my favorite cars. I am split between you and Aliel. You're both such good role models.

Probably because they are ugly. He can just run a setup like a facelift audi and not have the washers on the hood. Pretty easy to do.


What grill are you going with Brian?

What grill are you going with Brian?

i'm stickin with the RS4 grille for now. i'm having him paint the rings and trim on the grille in the BMW Sparkling Graphite, which is the same color as the roof.

i have been debating going with the same badgeless grille that you will be running, but i'm gonna stick with what i have for now, and maybe change it up in a few months, we'll see.[up]


and yeah, he's using duraglass to fill the body lines

A4Rob

Duraglass is key. Looks good!

Beware, these body mods are more addicting than crack. I'll give yo ua few months til you start cutting up other things on your car

alright, so I'll admit it, you have created a Böser hood that I like on the B5, after looking at it for a bit, yes it has been done, the first one I've seen that I truly like

I can't wait to see it all finished.

But why don't you fill in the hole for the Audi logo on the front fenders while you're at it? :)

it belongs to the guy who is doing the bodywork. he is doing a custom widebody on it, and shaving a bunch of stuff, and throwing a 2.0l turbo into it as well. its gonna be one badass car[up]

This car is ugly and will remain so until there is a supercharger under the hood...[;)]












....Bring that thing home when you are done so i can see it[up]

04-24-2008, 08:58 AM
Don't say that having power has nothing to do with how it looks. Sometimes I wish I had a 2.8 then I hear my turbo spool and cant say no. BTW that trunk is just what I wanted to do but with a euro. How are you going to pop the trunk with that shaved so I can sort of do it the same way.
