Welcome Aboard SayHey,

WOW!!!, That's a lot of parts. Boy you jumped in with both feet. I feel like a kid in a candy store looking at all of those parts.

Are you going the work your self or paying a Resto-Guy to do it. I'm sure everybody on this board will be checking in on your progress.
It looks like you have the photos covered, keep them coming.

There are lots of knowledgeable members here that are willing to help when and if you need it.

Good Luck with the project.

Take Care

I'm from St/ Petersburg, Russia

All wrenching i am doing by myself with some help from friends.

Bodywork, exhaust, some work with leather interior will be done in another place by qualified masters.

Now I am waiting for my turn to go to bodywork and after that i will start assembling.

There are a lot of parts to buy but i plan to finish for the next summer)

Hey sayhey! Ive been following you on Instagram for some time now, glad to see you here! Man, that is some collection of parts, thanks for posting the pics. I would also like to know the part number for the injector rebuild.

I'm sure members here would also love if you'd post up info on the RS6 brake setup you have up front. Those brakes look fantastic!

Also, do you still have those T-Shirts for sale? I think we could get a group buy together to ship a box over from russia to the US, they look great.

Cheers!

There is no problem to fit RS6 brakes on the front.
PCD is the same, the inly problem is a dust shield and you need to make a custom caliper mount.
As for the photo - I have just put them on without mounting while changing brake lines on my RS6.

I am planning to find good set of Alcon Brabus brakes or new set of Bembo GT.
This will be cheaper.

Beatiuful work! Just FYI... you have the wrong thermostat. The one in your photo is for later (1995-up) models of the M119.

Your engine will use the early type thermostat. Photo below:

There are not so many updates, as i am trying to save money for brembo brakes and looking for a good place to make body work.

I have foun a pair of recaro cse seats and ordered adaptors for them to fit in the car.

The next thing I am planning to do is to strip the body and to take it to bodyshop.
