Extra brake light up and running

Written by NEO August 21 2007 at 15:40.

I completed the wiring to the extra brake light today. The first ABT C5 hatch I got had the windscreen with the extra brake light and since that glass was used on the hatch I decided to mount the light, despite that some people will call me "raggare". =) I don't think it looks that bad. So I'll stick with it for a while and see what people say. One strong argument for keeping it is the fact that the RS2 has a high mounted brake light.

The glass is in the hatch!

Written by NEO August 19 2007 at 15:34.

Today the glazier was over in the garage and we installed the glass in the hatch! Was not all to easy. The rubber trim under the glass was one stubborn bastard. I also got a small damage to the paintwork on the hatch. =(((( Overall it went good though. I also used one of my monster brake discs as a weight to force the hatch into the proper position. I doubt it will help though but worth a try.

One small problem that I had missed... The first thing the glazier said once the glass was in position was "this was one scratched glass!". Uuuhoooh! I had not seen that the glass was full of small (and big) scratches. =( I hope it is fixable. Otherwise I'll have it like this until the other hatch is reproduced in carbon fiber. Then I take the best of my three glasses and use on that one. Big thanks to Janne at “Tages Glas” for helping out!

Yet another ABT hatch in my possession! =)

I have not said anything about this here. But as some of you know I actually found another ABT C5 hatch down in Germany. Once the deal was settled with Ingo and that hatch was delivered I got an e-mail from Bernd who said he found a hatch for me! At this stage I knew the first hatch had some quality issues so I didn't hesitate for even a millisecond. I told Bernd that I'll buy it! It took a while to get it to Sweden but once here I can only state that it is in twice as good condition as the first one! And it was packed extremely well. I can never thank Bernd enough. Thanks a million Bernd! You rule! =)

The guy that delivered it was from Germany and did not speak one word English. Or hey... Now I exaggerate. I think he actually knew two or three words English. =) But it all worked out fine and it was a funny experience.

Lambda sensor fell off and ABT hatch mounted on car!

Written by NEO August 17 2007 at 15:15.

PICT0511_1024PICT0530_1024PICT0533_1024PICT0535_1024PICT0538_1024PICT0541_1024PICT0542_1024PICT0544_1024PICT0545_1024PICT0548_1024PICT0549_1024PICT0550_1024PICT0552_1024PICT0554_1024PICT0555_1024PICT0556_1024PICT0567_1024PICT0568_1024PICT0573_1024PICT0575_1024PICT0580_1024PICT0582_1024

The new tires and the wheel alignment in combination with the Whiteline RARB is just super! The car is so much funnier to drive now. So fun that I pushed it a bit to hard on a bad road. There was a huge bump in the road that made me and the car air born for a while. When we landed the lambda sensor nut came loose from the downpipe. =( I had no other choice then continue my trip home for another 100km. I did not really know how to fix this. But... I asked "Dr Ernie" who my parents happen to be, almost, neighbors to. "No problems!" he said. =) So big thanks to DTE Racing that fixed my downpipe. He also mounted an extra nut for wide band lambda. The problem there is that I measured it's position when the front of the car was in the air so the shock absorbers in the front was in their end position... And, I never thought of that the steering bars also change their position then. Soooo... To sum it up, the wide band lambda will most probably not fit now. =( But I can not blame anyone else then myself for this fatal mistake.

Anyway, to remove the downpipe might sound like a simple task. But since it's not an original downpipe I have to remove right drive shaft from gearbox, cover around drive shaft, right wishbone, middle section of exhaust pipe and of course everything around the turbo. A painful operation.

I also found a set of PFC brake pads for my front Porsche calipers. There was nothing left on the old ones and the RS6-calipers will not be mounted this season.

I also replaced the cap over the fuel pump. The frequent reader might remember that it was leaking. I never had the time to look for cracks in the lid so I just bought a new one, sigh. But when it was time to replace it it had not leaked. DAMN! So must have been the gasket after all. But in pure frustration I replaced the old one with the new lid.

And... Oooh... Yeaaah! The ABT C5 hatch is back from the painter. At a first glance it looks ok. But when looking a bit closer there 's a couple of drips and on at least one place the underlying repair is visible since the filler have raised up a bit. That they did warn me for though. And after mounting the hatch I noticed that it does not have best fit. Under the wing where the hatch should align to the body the hatch actually stands out a bit. The problem is that this can not be adjusted so this hatch has probably been involved in some kind of accident or something. Things like this makes me sad. Though we will try to force the hatch down when we glue the glass back. Se if that helps.

Other then that it looks pretty good. It's a bit strange to see it on the car without the glass in it. And it takes a while to get used to not have the wing stretching out over the C-pillar. Hopefully I will love it once it's all completed.

More pictures from the hatch repair

Written by NEO June 28 2007 at 14:47.

Ooooooo my back hurts! The sanding and repair of the ABT-hatch took a while! I used the "Dremmel" to carefully grind all the cracks that I found, quite a few actually. Then I used plastic fiber filler to add some strength to it. Plastic fiber filler is really a pain to work with but good for repairs like this.

I also managed to remove the glass out of the hatch! It was actually pretty simple. "Tages Glas" in my hometown provided me with the wire that's used to saw through the glue that holds the glass in place. It was a bit tricky on some places but it only took a couple of nervous hours to remove the glass. And I didn't use any special tools other then the wire. Now I have to find someone that can put some tinted film on the glass. I guess I could do it my self, I have done it on other cars. But I don't think I can do it as perfect as I want it. One of those things I rather leave to the pros. =)

Today I delivered the hatch to the painter. Could barley get the hatch into my parents Mazda. I really don't know how I will get the hatch from the painter once it's painted. Maybe rent a minivan or something. First I thought of mounting it over at the painter but that feels a bit unsecure and the risk of stressing it and breaking something in the process is imminent. But anyways, now it's up to the painter to fine tune the hatch. I only fixed the big issues. And let's hope that the filler I used on the repairs doesn't sink in to much once the paint work is done.

I also had the car over at "Bilteknik" today for a new wheel alignment and I do not now how it's possible since I barley haven't driven the car since the last wheel alignment but a lot of the values were messed up. Now they are all good again!

Oh, and a sad day the other day. The car passed 150000km. =( I missed it with 6 kilometers. Pretty annoying, I wanted to photograph it exactly on the 15000 mark.

Hatch ready for paint!

Written by NEO June 27 2007 at 14:29.

The hatch is packed and ready for delivery to the painter. Will deliver it tomorrow. Will also take the car to the workshop that will align the wheels for me. More pictures of the hatch will be added tomorrow.

Even more work on the hatch, some cracks

Written by NEO June 23 2007 at 14:26.

PICT0481_1024PICT0482_1024PICT0483_1024

I continued with the inside today and finished it late this evening. We turned the hatch over and I continued to sand the outside. The outside was actually pretty easy and done in 1-2 hours or so. The inside was far worse. Sloppy paint job and many corners that was hard to sand. But I want it to be as good as possible so the paint job turns out good both on the inside and the outside. That will make the process of building mould of it a lot easier. Yes, this baby will be replicated in a very limited amount. =)

Two cracks surfaced on the wing, one big and one smaller. It looks like it's not just in the filler. =(

Working on the ABT hatch

We moved the hatch home to my parents garage so I can work on it night and day. Need to fix all the big issues until Monday and then leave it to the painter. The old, blue, paint job is pretty sloppy and under it are a couple of repairs. Some minor ones and some major ones. Will write some more tomorrow or the day after when I have sanded it a bit more.

ABT C5 rear hatch and new tires! =)

Mmmmm! Vacation! Finally some time to work at the car! I got my package from Ingo in Hanover this Monday! After 7 years search I finally own an ABT C5 rear hatch! WEEEEOOOO! Schenker that transported it from Germany to Sweden did abuse it a bit. But it will not be all to hard to fix. Will probably start working on it tomorrow. I will for sure post more pictures of my new lil baby. =)

Today I also got new tires mounted. A friend that works at "Däckia" here in my hometown hooked me up with a set of Nokian Z 225x40x18. I was really really worried that it would look odd with 225 instead of 235 on my wheels. But it looks way way waaaaaay better then I had expected. So I'm really satisfied. I picked 225 instead of 235 since my old 235s tended to hit the front fenders when driving a bit inspired. =) And it actually seems like 225s did the trick! Tried some inspired driving and so far they have not touched the fenders. =))))

Secret package from Germany lost! Maybe damaged!?

Written by NEO June 13 2007 at 13:55.

Have been on phone with Schenker today because I wondered where my secret package from Germany was. The guy I talked to sounded a bit troubled and he said that the package had been stopped in some town here in Sweden and marked as "damaged goods". MOTHERF**KER! He said he had to find out more about it and will call me tomorrow or something.
