Audi 4000 Quattro
Acquired a 3B Turbocharged 20v, waiting on wiring harness and finding time to strip the interior for roll cage.
Currently debating stripping the chassis and rhino-linering the underside and removing rust/sealing the subframes

UPDATE: Megasquirt installed, engine installed, it lives. Working on putting it back together. Stripped the interior.

Jetta TDI
Rungs great, needs the front wheel bearings replaced and the turbocharger seals are basically kaput, so the turbo needs replacement

Audi 90 Quattro 20v
There is very little to do to this car except for maintaining it.
Things already done:
- Replaced Radiator
- Replaced Thermostat
- Replaced Speakers
- Re-wired Radiator Fan due to shoddy PO repairs
- Repaired the rear tweeters, as the PO cut them out to install cheap subs
- Installed car seat anchor for child seat
- Flushed the Power Steering and Power Brake system with Pentosin, as PO was running standard power steering fluid in it. Solved the squeaky pump and stopped the leaks.
- New tires and swapped on the 4000s rims. New Brake pads
- Repaired the smashed passenger side headlight and turn signal from POs accident.


May eventually look at turbocharging and improving the 7A in the car, but for now it drives great and everything works. It needs front rotors in a bad way.
