i spent 250 for the trunk before all of the work. needs one more coat. and it is ready for prime/ paint. i bought a avant so i really don't need it anymore. just don't want to give it away that is all.
the inside was painted so there will be no rust and it was kept in min 55degrees for the last, holy shit, 2 yrs. i don't rush at all when i work on stuff. a little here a little there.

i did the bumper too but i am probably keeping that for the avant. i am not sure if they are the same measurement yet. i used the angles of the trunk line for the plate recess so i am not sure if i will like it for the avant yet either. have not fitted it up yet.

throw me some offers.

I'm curious to see what this would look like. I like the idea. Anyone want to try and photoshop a shaved trunk?

for some it might be to much metal. i have had two shaved hatches mk2,mk3 so i figured i would just follow my path. the amount of metal is very close to that of the mk3.

I think it looks good totally shaved.

Here is a pshop of it on my car. And Jarrod, sorry if my offer offended you. It was a lowball because you bumped twice and looked like you were not getting any other offers.

i just want to know how you would open it??? i had a shaved trunk on my Honda Civic like back in 99 but it had a latch on the inside...

You can get a popper that would just pull the stock latch open then you could lift it up.

For mounting the plate I was thinking a custom frame with magnets on the back. A few small led's with watch batterys and a light sensor.

The sadan rear bumper is not going to fit as you will have to cut the granny out of it to allow the tail gate to open.

Your better off selling it and starting a fresh with an Avant bumper.

None of the B5s open with the remote, you would have to retrofit a popper from a B6 or something into it.

I think it could look good, would like to see how it would look with the trunk and bumper all done.

Oh yes they do.

The face lift have the 3 buttom remote that if you hold down the trunk button it pops the boot/trunk

What MYs have this. My 01.5 was the last of the production of the B5 A4 and it has a two button remote and you have to pop the trunk yourself.

The B6 and on have the 3 button remotes with trunk pop.

i looked at a avant hatch close. its def. diff. well it looks like i am selling the bumper i made too. w/ support .

If you have the 3 button remote with the trunk image on it, it will pop. I can only think some one bought a key for yours with only the two button and only progamed them. You should be able to get a 3 buttom remote and program in the remote trunk button with VAG.

Granny is slang like
"I'm gonner beat the GRANNY out of you"
"Fcuk my old Granny that was a hard"
" You wait till you get home cos I'm goner Fcuk the granny out of you" Last one don't go down to well.

gotcha doc. the cutout for the liftgate is deeper into the bumper than the sedan.[up]

here are some of the bumper.
stock a4 bumper w/ s4 rear spaced down 1" for a deeper valance
and to fit the plate lines up perfect you can see the corners where i shortened the valence to line it up. also filled the holes at the bottom so it is completely smooth to sight from the rear but the holes are still there for mounting. the vertical lines of the plate recess are the same lines as the trunk. lights have to be cut in and it has to be sanded and then prepped for paint.
lots of time in this b!tch. it includes a partially trimed support.

sling some primer on it to give people a better idea what the final iteam would look like.

I take it your goner sell it now!

jrodmk2
01-25-2006, 10:16 AM
yes. i looked at the bumper. yes i would have to hack/granny it up pretty good. did not think the bumpers were that different.

oh well.

i guess i could put primer on it. i just did not want to paint over something that was ready for its last sand/prep layer but then again it is just primer.

its hack the granny out of it[:D]

This set-up would make a great custom mod for someone for sure and if I were you I would go with retro fitting in a set of B7 LED rear light in would enhance the Avant.
