Art of Diesel Store Open & Working on Audi

Sorry, all, as things have been awfully quiet around here. I’m slowly working things behind the scenes at Ethical Developer Group, but that site will probably be quiet for a little while, too. My biggest project at the moment is setting up an eCommerce store: The Art of Diesel Shop!

Fun

Here’s the transmission, that I finally removed from my son’s Audi Quattro tonight.

There are only a few products in there, right now, but we are working to find the very best products at the very best values in the realm of automotive tools, accessories, and emergency equipment. We aren’t selling air fresheners or stick figure family stickers. Everything in this store will be functional and helpful in real-life use. Because we are being selective, the selection is currently small, but it will be growing. Be sure to go there and check it out!

Meanwhile, I know this car isn’t a diesel, but I’m working with my son on his 2002 Audi A4 Avant Quattro. It has 190,000 miles on it and the clutch started slipping. He’s spending his time in Indianapolis with Apprentice University, these days, but he’ll come down to work with me in the shop tomorrow. We’ll get his new clutch

Here’s the clutch we’ll be replacing tomorrow.

and a new rear main seal installed and start bolting everything back together again. It might not be a diesel, but at least it has a turbo. Fun!
