  1. Had a mishap on the first weather seal I tried to install. In my inexperience, I put a tear at the top corner of the OEM passenger door weather seal, nearly in two, but still together by a little bit. Tried to replace the seal but currently the supply of these are not to be had due to the COVID shipping issues. I would consider using one of the improved URO's but it appears these too are not to be found. Since I successfully got the driver's door installed, I am now an experienced weather seal installer! So, I thought I would install the damaged one for now and redo it once the supply chain opens up. What I need is an adhesive for the split seat that can help hold this together. Any suggestons?
  2. Colonel Mustard, in the conservatory with a butter knife.
  3. Round 1 with the door gaskets went to the Frustration. Did get a few pieces of trim on. I am losing out to the tracks on the a-pillar to the roof.
  4. Thanks, it's good to know these were meant to be there.
  5. I found blocks of foam wadded into the rear quarter between the wheel well and the c-pillar. I suspect that these were likely stuck in by a PO, Or, are these meant to be there?
  6. Put on some of the bright work, insulation on the quarter panel, Door Stops, good wheels and the badge. Headliner went in this week! Tomorrow, we do the Door gaskets, door mechanisms and windows, and opefully the quarter window gaskets
  7. I like most of the 2002 palette. Very bright and refreshing compared to most cars today! I am convinced that Audi has their colors chosen by funeral directors. Let me put in a vote for Atlantik! Headliner went in this week. Starting to re-assemble today!
  8. Picked up my 73 from the upholstery shop with the headliner installed. Now we can get to work on the trim, door mechanisms and side glass this weekend!
  9. Mike, I have not attached the frames to the doors yet. Just moving by hand. When I get the car back from the upholstery shop tomorrow with the headliner installed, we will begin reassembly with the door mirrors and trim, super-lite dynamat and then the door mechanisms! Have new OEM door seals to put on. Expect a little 'bounce back' from these. David
  10. Very fitting as in Cars 2, the 'camera car' was an 02! I think that our cars are attracting a younger audience!
  11. I put the vent windows together and have the gaskets well seated. They are still a bit stiff to easily hand-close the windows. Perhaps with the crank mechanism, it will shut more easily. Question I have is there something I can apply to soften up these or is it a matter of time?
  12. I forgot that one of the dissolving parts cars has the heated rear window. These enter the interior at the shelf and are tucked inside the rear window gasket. No messing with the headliner, which was my concern.
  13. I am planning to have the car into an upholstery shop on Tuesday to have the headliner fitted. Whether it works or not, I plan to plug in the two wires for the rear glass. Do they come out of the parcel shelf which is where they go into interior or do these come out of the headliner C-Pillar? Any photos?
  14. Brought it home * from the body shop today. We have a few things to do over the weekend and on Tuesday, we will tow it to an auto upholstery shop to have the headliner installed. This weekend's work will include the roof sound insulation and door mechanisms. On the doors, we should start with the outer skin elements, such as the trim and the mirror brackets. Then we can put some super thin Dynamat on the doors prior to installing the window mechanisms. * 'Home' is my mom's empty garage which gives me plenty of room to work!
  15. Vintage dashes is working on the 2nd Generation prototype which will have stamped steel frames as do the originals. Last contact with Ivan at Vintage Dashes (VD for short), they were still at the 2nd prototype phase.
