Funny how we spend hours and even weeks working to shed race cars of every unneeded ounce. Meanwhile, a resto-mod tribute race-car gets full sound deadening and civilized interior treatment, so the driver can a) enjoy the noises the improved engine makes, and b) not have to wear earplugs inside the helmet while traveling between tour-stop appearances.

Nice job on the sound damping application. Folks who have yet to do this may not know how much "fun" it is to template, cut and fit every little piece of mat so it fits perfectly. I fondly remember having a bucket of Harbor Freight 99-cent "multi-purpose scissors" (what other purpose is there besides cutting things?) and a big cup of thinner to drop them in as the edges were fouled with the glue. Too-Late Hint: Car wax/paint sealant on the blades more than doubles the amount of cutting available between cleanings. Similar deal on the razor knife -- I found one that holds cheap single-edge blades, always a toss-up between cleaning them or just putting another one in.

Keep up the great work, and thanks for documenting and sharing the experience with us!

Installed the Cascade VB-2 on the doors. There is a little learning curve, but really nice to work with. The material doesn’t have much flexibility until you add a little heat with heat gun. I used welding gloves when contouring the material. The trick is to get the material warm but not to hot where it becomes rubber like.

Made aluminum lid for where the spare tire goes. I covered with the VB-2. I also did the battery box lid and started doing the spare tire compartment.

Update on my headliner. I accomplished my goal by pissing off William enough that he called and said he was delivering my headliner on Sunday. I got it back and he did not fix any of the issues and it actually looks worse than when he picked it up. Happy to have it back and will only used recommended people going forward.

^ Not being rude but while you're doing the trans put the original rear spoiler back on. I just don't think the S4 looks right on the older bodied cars. Just my opinion and like I said, not being rude, just in conversation.

Hey If you like it that's cool. Like I said, not being rude. It's still a nice car, I just think the S4 wing looks odd an an S that's all. Not having a go at you / your car. That's the thing I hate about writing stuff. It's hard to convey something without facial expressions, tone of voice etc.

I do not agree with your assessment as I've always disliked the pre-S4 ’spoilers’ - if that's what you'd want to call them.
