Hi ZXRJohn,
The mod to the lift mechanism is really simple, no adapters required. The drive gear from the Peugeot lift motor is removed, it looks like two gears one on top of the other. Carefully grind down the teeth on a bench grinder the larger gear off the two. Although the spline count is different , the Peugeot is coarse, the Audi fine. Keep carefully grinding until the gear starts to engage in the Audi splines. Now come the the magic, the Audi housing has a 6mm hole in the back of the housing .Put a 6mm bolt in the vice that is long enough to pass through the Audi housing and the Peugeot drive gear and space for a nut. Then get the gear red hot, drop it on to the bolt quickly put on the nut and then tighten the nut with a fully charged powerful cordless drill. Once fully seated cool the gear with water.
I know it sounds long winded but it worked for me.

Shots of the door card, inner and outer. The inner shot shows the two additional towers made to locate the attachment pins. The location of the operating servo is shown on the shot of the inside of the metal door panel . The photo of the Audi window lift gear box shows the Peugeot gear drive modded and mounted .

The difficulty the glass people discussed was if the cut had to go through the green band at tne bottom of the screen and if so the problem of getting the inner and outer cut line to line up. The cut needs to go right on end of the green lower band so no problem. HOWEVER when the wipers are in the origional postion the entire wiper arm and blade are now fully visible, the body line between the back edge of the bonnet and the screen is broken up by the two wipers. This in my opinion spoils the style of the car so as a result I will not be going down this route.

I am on the case. Have spoken with a local specialist who does laminted glass cutting . |They advise that a possible complication is the green shading at the bottom of the screen. If the cut goes through this area then diffiuclty arises when they try to aline the two cuts either side of the screen since they have to be exactly inline. They can see the outer cut but cannot see where the inner cut needs to be.  However they say it is not impossible and have asked me to take the screen to them . I will keep you updated.

Sounds like a brilliant idea. Can you let us know how it went .

Further news on the drivers door. Photo's of the Ferrari door handle mounted on the Peugeot door skin on the mounting bracket I made. This was not without it's challenge since I had to work out the shape with the outer extreme skin in place. The handle and mount are fitted from the outside, I have done it this way so should the handle ever need replacing the outer fibre glass skin does not need to be removed. The door actuator extends into the Peugeot door so cable replacement would not require the skin to be removed either.

Update on the drivers door. Photos of the end cap in place. Couple of shots of the B post, I ended up cutting the fibre glass return off the quarter panel, it was so thick that the door rubber would not go over it.

Thought I would share a couple of photo's of the fuel system. I have isolated the ferrari intank high pressure fuel pump and pressure regulator. They run @ 65 PSI far to high when feeding the holley carb I will be running when the car is first running. I have installed in the tanks fuel pumps from a 7 litre Buick Riviera feeding a Holley fuel pressure regulator set @ 4 PSI.

I got around to organising the gear lever gate to go on the centre console only to realise the gear lever I made years ago was the wrong diameter 12mm should have been 10mm and was also too short. So had to make another this time 10mm 304 stainless steel along with an o/e knob. It's all part of the learning curve.
