Quattro Squad Field Trip #1Posted on Oct 09, 2016
Not much action to report this week as we took the Quattro Squad on a field trip. We managed to get our 85 quattro running again for the first time in 2.5 years so to celebrate we took three of the students in it to visit a friend's shop and quattro heaven.
Werner owns a 85 from Switzerland and an 83 that he rescued. His 85 is for all intents and purpose a restored example but, because he is a perfectionist, will undergo a full engine rebuild this winter.His 83 is a rescued project that for now is just sitting. We believe the squad were suitably impressed.
Perhaps inspired by their experience the guys removed the rear bumper when they returned to the shop. Though it put up some resistance.
Now the hoist is free perhaps we can take the engine and transmission out.
