Hugo, you can put a 12" up front in the passenger foot well. A small box is built just big enough for the woofer to sit in that seals against the top of the footwell. Then, a hole is cut above and is sealed to the box air volume box residing in the hood area. Helps with weight balance as well. A fiberglass box would work better because it would weigh less and keep the center of gravity lower, but I wanted to make sure it worked well first.

Thanks for the pics, it is and will be a beautiful AND mean car!

I forgot to ask you, how much wider are your fenders than stock? And are those Porsche pattern BBS wheels? What are the offsets and what car where they intended for?

Hi Hugo, Great job!
That's a really nice looking conversion you've started there and a good choice of engine and powertrain too!
I particularly like the substitution of the Corvette front suspension components (if a little heavy though IMHO) which really look the mutt's nuts.
I will be following your build closely, along with everyone else here! Good luck with it all and please keep us posted!

There is no news, because I have a lot of work, and I'm still waiting for some items for the rear suspension from North carolina (ebay).

Hugo, I am interested in your headlights. Did you make them or buy them??

thanks, mike

I make them.

coffinator August 7th 2005 15:49

What parts from what cars did you use or did you just find what you wanted and put it together. Do you have some pics of the project? I like them and I am looking to make some.

thanks,
mike

The car was beautiful to start with! Looks like it will be even more beautiful!

Hugo,
I might be wrong but isn't that v8 watercooled? I dont know much about AUDI. Where do you plan on putting your radiator? Thats the problem I kept running into when I thought about mid-mounting a v8. I thought about doing like Ferrari and putting them just under the back window infront of the rear fender. I dont like the idea of cutting louvers in my hood or deck lid.

thanks,
mike

I'm going to install the radiator in front in the spare tire compartment with a small air intake (like a corvette C4 or something like that).
