Hi all

I debadged the boot lid on my car last weekend to give it a sleeper look below is a pic

I fitted a towbar and had to refit the plastic trim panel under the bumper. I removed the rear bar to do this. I thought I would attach a photo of my car with no rear bar(it looks naked)

In the next few days I will receive my Go fast bits Dual stage boost controller.(See the link It's a new product for this Aussie company)

i got bright reflective tape for the trim line between the taillights on the 740, to match the reflective tape on the decor panel i have...im gonna go to West Marine to see what theyve got for bumper tape....the theme im going with is like Aussie's car above, or Ravennexus' green 244

George, the paint on your 740 looks much better in the debadged pics than it does in your signature.

Hi All

The sig pic was taken not long after I bought the car(Will update soon more visual mod to come). The car has been fully polished once in the time I have owned it and will be done again soon. The section of the boot lid where the badges where was hand polished just before the photos where taken

Bumper tape I have a NOS volvo bumper tape kit to suit 240 and maybe 700series. My friend has a kit as well. If you are intrested PM me
