I just bought my first project car and real Volvo its a 81 242 I Paid 300 bucks for it and it runs and very little rust. There is just a little rust on the but cheeks and thats it, not a single ding on the car the straightest 242 I have seen (but i am a newb so thats not many). I have already bought a b21ft from an 84 240 turbo.

Cool car. 1981 is a good year. That paint color will shine up *really* well if you get a power buffer and do a 3-stage buffing job on it.

Fix that rust asap.

Also: why is there rust there in the first place? NO MUDFLAPS. get some at a junkyard or something. Also, check inside your trunk and make sure that the pockets are draining ok.

Yeah, try getting the later model ones, they go actually behind the rear wells instead of halfway down the body. Look a little nicer.
