HMT's '94 BA (Project L)

Hi all,

just thought i'd post up pictures and history of my dear BA...right, here we go:

Bought in Jan 2001 with 33.000km on the clock


(actually taken at my school yard )

Fittet a new xhaust and fog lamps - as for the wheels, well, umm, was winter at the time...



2002
Got huge 15" alloys (as opposed to 13")


also some minor modifications


...aand got it lowered



2003
Again small mods


side skirts and tinted windows



2004
new alloys and interiour stuff


some color coding


and bought a 2nd BA



2005

changed the exhaust


didnt like the exhaust and changed it back, got new suspension and front lip



new alloys and modified bumpers:


@the club meeting 2005


getting a paintjob


and finished for the time (with custom mirrors)

2006
tested 17" alloys for some time


taillight experiment


didnt like either - got different alloys though: my current MOMO GT2 7.5x17"


Hmm, and some pictures of fitting the aircon:





The car was sleeping throughout 2008 and I didnt do much in 2009 except getting a BP05


...and some goodies


Didnt really have time but started deconstruction


Also started cleaning up axles and new brakes



My car family:


Leather experiments

And some pics of the car as it is now












Unfortunately i havent got as much time as i used to have, so we'll see what i can get done in 2010...

Currently playing around with the speedo (see here http://www.project-l.com/images/bast...cho/thumb.html).

Cheers,
Chris

PS: Still a lot missing in the story - should be enough for now though!

Well, i didnt test it, if that's what you mean...however it's wired to the airbag ECU and there's no error code.

Almost right - that was at the german side of the alps near lake constance, a region called "Allgäu" - black forest is a bit to the northwest from there (and one of the most lovely regions on the world imo - highly recommended ).

More pictures from that day:

I agree.....its one of the most beautiful places I've been to and the best scenic drive I've ever done. Thoroughly enjoyed the drive.....nice windy road with pictures scenery (all roads I driven in Europe are far ...far ...better than Australian roads!!!) . I was there last summer in the black forest region when I went from France to Switzerland crossing borders during my annual European tour. Those pine trees are very unique for that region....I even visited the cuckoo clock factory and bought one! remember those cows with big bells!!
