The two new guides for the door rubber are now in place, this allows the Audi window to seal to Peugeot body shell.

Back to the project at last. The nearside B post is now in position. Just the edge for the door rubber to trim and then onto extending the roof drip rail to allow the drop glass to seal against the repositioned rubber.

That was not the end of it, my daily driver BMW decided that it would throw up an rear door thorax yellow airbag light. It's never the airbag, oh no it's " resistance too high ". More hours of my life I will never get back. Two days later it throws up a red drivers airbag light, this was resolved by replacing the ZSL module in the steering column ,did that fix it ,no because it has to be coded to the car. So once that's resolved it throws up an engine management light, "adaptive mixture control bank one and bank two limit reached" this was a ruptured crankcase diaphragms. Did replacing them fix it, no the engine ECM has to have an adaptive control reset. Still have not fixed grand sons quad, I have the parts just not got round to it.

Sorry for no updates, I have been plagued by jobs on my "other" vehicles. My daughter is into the VW camper van scene. Her recent trip to Santa Pod did not go well with reports of down on power from the 1.9 TD engine. So many hours of investigation revealed a partially blocked exhaust. Had to buy a special tool to get the down pipe off !!!!. Once that was resolved it was agreed we would fit an intercooler, this resulted in many more hours of fabrication and parts buying along with fuel pump and turbo mods. All went well until we tried to start the engine, what was once an easy engine to start was not having any of it. So undid all the fuel pump mods but still it would not start. More investigation revealed the cold start was inop. So had to rewire and and replace the cold start relay. Job done, three PSI boost is now twelve pounds of boost.

Yes you right, a lot better than a bit of fibreglass bonded to a kitchen door hinge.

Been busy looking after my grandson ,it's school holidays .Mrs Chevy and I took him yesterday to East Kirby to see "Just Jane" this is an up and running world war two Avro Lancaster. The roar of four Rolls Royce Merlin V 12 engines screaming at full chat literally takes you breath away .The smell of 100 + octane avgas is enough to make you go funny.
In the time I had on the project I made the bracket that hold the outer door handle to the door skin. Next is to make the two brackets that secure the inner door cable.

I have been busy with family MOT's so progress has been slow on the passenger door. But I did have chance to sort out the steering wheel.

Door mechanism now fitted in the nearside door. photo's show the misalignment of the back edge of the drop glass to the rear quarter panel. This is fixed by putting in a new B post. This corrects the misalignment and also becomes hidden under the rear Ferrari quarter light glass. The roof rails are next to be modded and then to work on the outside handle and stiffen up the back of the door behind the fibreglass door cap.

Sorry for the poor photos in the previous post. I have now completed the refabricating of the Audi A3 door window mechanism for the passenger side. Shown are the handed pair of mechanisms. The door bar is fitted to the door, so now it's time for all the hard work of fitting the frame into the door shell and doing the internal linkage and outer door handle. Just out of interest it was me who identified the Audi A3 two door as a candidate for the Extreme 360 kit .During my day job I drove around the country visiting customers and dealerships, so took the plastic window that came with the kit and used to walk around the company car parks offering up the window to see if any were suitable. When I had identified the Audi as suitable I shared the info with the team at Extreme. The engine support frame is back from powder coating. It's coming along now, next is repositioning the B post and then the steel roof.
