      Great to see the progress...
      I like the detail of your pics, as they show a lot of parts your car has....that mine is missing.
      If you have a 5 cylinder, you don't need a stereo.

      What is a Homologation car you ask?

      More tubes, more clamps, more money, more time. The four rings of (old) Audi ownership.

      Still, I think we are done with vacuum hoses

      Charcoal canister is back on/in the car and replaced most of this:

      The "S" shaped hose is NLA as is the little stubby that's actually a reducer, so I left those in place.

      This section is all done too:

      And I finally figured out the arrangement for the warm-up regulator after referring to and stealing some from my 83. Not sure why I didn't think of this before.

      What shall we do next; put the engine back in maybe?

      Decided to curb my enthusiasm and fix a few more things before impetuously throwing the engine back in. Someone had spliced in a new piece of wire at some point; quite poorly.

      Fixed that.

      This, however, can wait. It sits on top of the intake which makes it easier to repair in situ.

      Found we are missing the heat shield over the right engine mount; the one that had failed. Of course its No Longer Available.

      This is what it looks like in the flesh; OK on Google.

      The we had a great idea; let's steal the one off the 83 in the corner. It was impossible to see but we managed to removing the mounting hardware, surprisingly. Even more surprisingly we managed to extract it without having to remove anything else!

      Then, even, even more surprisingly it looked like this!

      Obviously a cobbled together facsimile. What is odd, beside the strange tube is the fact that what's left of the original is still encased within. Obviously not going to work on the 85. Off to Audi Tradition to get reamed again.

      Waiting for parts (drums fingers on desk)

      Decided to find some things we will need to do before the car is ready to fire up. Getting ahead so to speak. The hydraulic "bomb" mounts need replacing as the leaking oil has softened them up and they have started to split. Fortunately we bought some new ones a while back. A good time to replace them.

      Fortunately the nuts weren't too rusty and didn't put up a fight. Sometimes leaky hydraulics has benefits.

      Uh oh! this must have happened in storage DOH. Let's hope they bend back without breaking off. Perhaps we should order a new one anyway.

      image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


      Old vs. new. A couple are still serviceable. We'll keep them for spares.

      And back together.

      And on the engine. Yes, it surprised us too. Well, we had to put it somewhere and the dodgy spade terminals we bent back into place will be safer here than back in the parts box. It shouldn't hinder engine installation and one more thing done

      Another update in less than a week. You guys must be feeling rather special now eh?

      Just trying to find things to do while those damn heat shields arrive from Germany. Rummaged through the parts bins and found the old front brake lines that need replacing. Couldn't find any OE so decided to make these Centric ones look like OE by transferring the rubber rings over. What do they do anyway?

      image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


      We actually had some we pulled off the 83 car. That one's getting stainless lines so we just cut the old ones which made getting these off quite simple.

      image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


      However, getting them on the new lines was not so easy as they didn't want to expand over the fittings. Never mind, nothing a utility knife and some glue can't handle.

      Wheel leave them to cure for a while eh.

      image by Team Illuminata Motorsport, on Flickr


      We only need one holder ring so we cut one off. We decided to use the Centric one as our original ones are already falling apart.

      Oh, is that the DHL truck?
