The 83 quattro squad rally build keeps inching forward. A few days ago we received these beautiful G60 brake caliper brackets from a very generous chap on the Motorgeek forum. Thanks Dave, they will be put to good use.

We offered them up to our struts and calipers and they fit perfectly.

Only question now is how to finish these and the calipers for best effect. Options are:

1. Red powder coat
2. Black powder coat
3. Yellow dichromate like OE (gold)

Feel free to weigh in.

Here's an interesting aspect to the project. We found this 1:18 die-cast model on eBay. Quite cheap; probably because it is quite plain.

We thought it would be a good idea to refinish it in the same livery we are planning to finish the car in. That is, our version of Rothmans with BRAID and TIM logos.

So first we had to strip it:

We are not sure how to proceed from here however. Damn, another bloody Quattro project! Stay tuned.
