In restoring my 20v urq, I've wound up making molds and producing a bunch of
fiberglass parts for the urq.
The parts I've produced are:
Rear quarter panels
Sport Quattro Hood & Grill -- the factory replica sport grill is a difficult
piece to fit to a ur. The fender contours are different, and the large bow
in it makes it difficult to fit to the stock ur hood line. I've produced
several of these factory replica grills, but for the above reasons, have not
been happy with the fitment with the stock hood (or sgi style/fiber images
sport q replica hood). I tried to solve this problem two ways: I produced
a sport quattro hood that had an extended leading edge, in order to match
the curvature of the sport q grill. I still wasn't happy with the fit and
the look, so instead I made a new sport q replica grill that lies much
flatter than the factory original, and matches the oem hood and fender
lines. It's almost complete, and it looks really great, but being less
bowed, the look is a litle less aggressive that the original sport q's. The
Sport Q headlights were also used on a Euro Passat, and should be common,
but they are becoming somewhat difficult to find. Still to complete on this
project are the OEM clip-on mounts. Once I'm done, I can take a mold of
the finished piece and reproduce it if there is enough interest.
Door pockets -- I've done replica late-door pockets. They look great, and
are really heavy-duty compared to the original plastic crap. My intention
now is to build an extension to a set I've produced and make a set of door
pockets with integral speaker enclosures.
Rear parcel shelf. -- My parcel shelf was pretty torn up from prior stereo
installs. I reproduced the parcel shelf in fiberglass, and my intention is
to customize one similiarly to the door pockets. I know it's a bit "pimp
my ride", but I think I can pull it off tastefully, and this car is already
20v, coilovers, big brakes, etc....and my intention is to bring it back from
being a track car to being somewhere between a car show hot rod, a pristine
urq 20v, and a daily driver.
Anyway, if there is any interest in urq fiberglass, please let me know.
I've can send photos of any/all of the parts.
