BRILLIANT

I'm loving the home made blast furnace

I'd like to see some more pics of what you used to fuel it and what you used as the crucible for melting the metal in.

I'm inspired!

First I tried with wood, but it is pain in the *** to saw small bits and constanlty feed them into the furnace. Now I have used coal. Found some lying on the ground around an abandoned boilerhouse, nobody uses coal anymore and my "mine" is almost depleted
Crucible is made from 6mm pipe and 6mm plate welded on one end.



First crucible was made from old fire extinguisher and it burnt through on first melt.



Don't forget to clean out the ash every time, or it will resrtict the airflow and overheat the grate and it will melt.

so, it is a pile of bricks, some coal, an iron drain cover/grate and some old tube and an Audi 80 interior fan.

BRILLIANT

Went to the store one day and saw a original Nardi steering wheel in a rusty and dirty Audi 80.
Offered my steering wheel to the owner and he agreed, he was happy for a steering wheel that was intact and not taped and I was even happier. So win win.
Needs some repair and new leather. Someone has put an audi logo in the middle, and it is not even glued, but pressed on, has some spikes on the back



Bought some old school wheels for summer tyres, unfortunately all center caps are missing.
Ignore tyres that look like balloons and pollen



Had some leftover paint and friend painted door handles, mirrors and gas tank flap.
Electric heated mirrors are from the same B4 donor car.
Car needs some polishing.



One plastic gear was broken inside the drivers mirror, C4 electric mirror element was used for repair. 3 metal sleeves for screws have different length and must be taken from B4, othwerwise identical.




Some interior pics from previous owner. I don't like the blue seats, as soon as I can find light/beige back seat, they will be thrown out.

It started snowing yesterday and interior is still not assembled.



I've been hoarding together Audi 90 parts from all over the country, maybe I can combine one decent set of lights & grill. And just found out that the bumper mounts are different on 80 & 90, begging to think that I should have bought an entire 90 for donor.



Bought Comfort blinker module, flashes turn signal 3 times, like on newer cars.
Photo is from the internet and has old part number, new one is 000953227A



Found pair of Girling 60 supports from the scrapyard. After electrolysis the supports are starting to like brakes again. Unfortunately they don't fit with 14" wheels, guess I'm gonna use them on the Competition.

Bought an entire Audi 100 because of heated front seats
Seats are little bit dirty and drivers seat has broken or bent frame. Already found donor seat frame form the scarp yard.
