Brief Description

Against better knowing I bought the car back in May 2000. Shortly after that the RS2-insanity begun. I bought RS2ish brakes (Porsche 944 Turbo S with Audi A8 discs). And after that it just went on and on and on. The goal was set to build the RS2 Coupé that Audi forgot. That is pretty much still the goal but with a touch of NEO and some performance parts from the current line of Audis. So there are parts that has to be manufactured that will cost me huge sacks of money so I don't really know how realistic the goal is. But aim really really high and you might get pretty far as they say. =) My biggest problem is that I'm really really picky. And that kinda holds me back since I know from the beginning that I won't really be satisfied with the result, like for instance with a paint job.
What has to be done now is to complete the rear RS2-bumper fabrication, manufacture the plastic between the rear lights (not just plastic fiber or carbon fiber...), a total respray and general touch up.
The name "the Bathmobile" has it's origin in all the water leaks I have had over the years. The Bathmobile has taken in water in every possible, and impossible, place so my "friends" ;) started to call it "the bathtub" which I tweaked to "the Bathmobile.

Money spent on the Bathmobile, updated 18th of July 2011

I have saved every receipt for spareparts and expenses. So I have a pretty good knowledge of how much the Bathmobile have costed me so far. So why not share that with you guys?
