Purchased January 8th,

First thing noise deadner.



Then off time to start painting.

Switches


Window post


Rear Wiper


Grills (rs3 grill on a rs4 and honey comb painted)


Blue LED's


Dash enhancements


Engine compartment (engine cover, fuse covers ect)


Engine cowling

Cowling removed, including wiper motor and wipers, this is normally semi gloss black


Cowling painted 3R2 Torched Penny


And the latest thing, 31 LED's in the rear wing. To install them well you dont want to know, but I had to cut a sizable home in the back of the wing and then fill it back in or cover it. Still in the works!!!

31 holes


LED's with resistors


31 LEDs wired up


All lit up




The wing isnt done yet, I have to paint it.

Where did you get it all painted, do it all yourself again? Hows the 3rd brake light look finished from inside? Looks good!

‘Congrats Skeeter, first post of the day to make me swear out loud :D

So nice. . . It would be killer to see your entire fleet in person.

The only thing I would suggest is painting the white housing on the headlights (assuming you’re staying stock for awhile).

Liesjemt, that is on my agenda, I was going to do why I had the grills out but I was ready to be done.

Padanky, I sprayed them in my garage, I had a paint shop mix the paint but its not exactly the same. Its not gold/green enough.

sdsnybny that could be done but requires a counter of sorts, not that hard to do. I may make some of the LEDs flash with my turning signals.

Wow! that's a lot of brown!! Dash and engine I mean. looks a bit under blinged.you almost need the chrome accents to break the monotony of the gray and brown on that dash. How abouts a tan interior?

Your RS4 looks awesome. I like the interior and the engine bay. The thrid brake light mod looks good too.

Shoberg, you might not think that way is you saw me cutting the back of the wing out to gain access to the inside. But i like it.

nope, i still like it!
Well me the trusty dremel cut a 2in by 18 in hole inthe back, so I could install everything and seal around the LEDs, then I cut a peice of lexan to cover the hole and attatched that to the wing after I painted it to match.

I had to drill one hole in the hatch to run the wires and one in the wing to run the wires.
