Hey thanks! Yeah the lip is fine...I haven't done anything with it yet but it's barely noticeable anyways. I think a little fiberglass in the future will be all it would need.

There were probably multiple reasons why it wasn't running but I think the biggest reasons were the intake leaks. Most of the vac lines were rotted and the main intake boot was cracked and not even fully seated. I don't think the CIS had enough vacuum to lift the fuel plate up causing the temporary running. Of course new grounds, starting cables, repaired wiring, along with tightened belts go a long ways too. Wish me luck, I'm driving it to work in the mornin!

Damn alternator belt flipped on my twice on my way home. Nothing like tightening belts in the snow when it's -10 outside. I think I should invest another 6 dollars into this car for a ContiTech...

New radiator (manual style) coming because I have a leaky end tank. Also going to pick up a set of the SPC adjustable upper control arms. Timing belt job is also on the list at the same time - I picked up the Ultimate kit from Europa Parts last year.

Will be in need of a knowledgeable alignment tech. I'm almost considering taking it up to Bozeman Audi...unless anyone has recommendations closer to Billings...(?)

I say give Chris at Rapid Tire a try. He's always done good work for me.

Yeah we talked a bit about that so I will give them a shot. Maybe I'll drop in one morning and get a feel for what they will be able to do.

Had Audi do the a4. It's still all over the road.
