I couldn’t pass up some local OZ Ultraleggeras. Had to test fit them. I think I’ll sell the TSW Revos. The rear brakes look so small.

Spent way too much time today looking through my unorganized piles and boxes of parts for the original ground strap. Never found it, but I know it’s around here somewhere. I did manage some time on the front suspension, as well.

Ultras are sexy as hell, nice score. Personally speaking, I like the wheel fitment to have the rim flush with the edge of the fender. Looks brawny that way and fills out the wheel arches nicely. How do the OZ wheels fit in that regard, what is the ET?

Super cool armrest, I never knew there was an aftermarket one available... where'd you manage to find that? I had thoughts of adapting one from a C4 but don't really like the idea of putting a hole in the TT seats I have. That mount is really tidy so my interest is piqued, to say the least.

I agree, one of my favorite wheels and I agree on the fitment. These are 17x7 et 42, made for Ford Fiestas (a downside of sticking with 4x108 I suppose). My 15mm spacers make them et27, effectively. So, these should be very similar to the Hockenheims, with regards to the rim lip to fender fit.

That Kamei armrest is actually made for B2s and C3s, but the mounting arms are bent to fit the wider B3 tunnel. And I made my own hardware to secure it to the seat rails. Braden was selling it on FB a few weeks ago, so I snatched it up.

Both sides of the front suspension are on now. Just need to torque everything down. Also built a new ground wire for the transmission. I may have to bend the lug on the transmission in order to get the bell housing bolts on.

I was surprised to find the 3B’s firewall bracket fit right in behind the coil. The holes lined up perfect. This is where I’ll put the timing, rpm, knock, and O2 sensor connectors.

Got the carbon canister relocated to the fender and hoses routed this morning.

Now, I’ve got a question. I bought an S2 AC line that goes between the drier and the evaporator from Audi Tradition. Problem is, the male fitting at the drier is M28 (bottom), but the stock fitting is M27 (top). Should I just tap the aluminum fitting on the drier? Anyone else run in to this issue?

I found a local refrigerated truck service company to just swap the smaller collar from the old line over to the new line. Should work just fine. I really wish I could weld, like some of you guys.
