That looks sweet man, I was thinking about ordering that kit myself. I have an 80 242. How difficult was it to put on?

You mean all impacts weren't thwarted by the commando bumpers? Geez, thats the only reason I still have mine! :lol:
Looks good, much more work there to start w/ than mine!
::edit:: Ok, those are different cars, I get it now

Nice car. The dual exhaust looks nice too.

I'm digging the dual exhaust, I'd like some on my 740 so its off to the autoyard this weekend :lol: And where'd you get the kit from, I think I might be needing one for mi wagon.

Thanks for the great comments guys!
Amazingly enough i got that exhaust tip off ebay for $5.50.. it's stainless steel and shines up great everytime i do it! It fit perfect in the body kit hole as well.. Except i must find a better way to secure it because it will hit the the body kit sometimes when running (i can hear it rattle just enough to annoy me.)
The body kit i bought from a place called "Brick Stylz" A great guy named Randy sells them out of Regina Sask Canada. the web address to order is
I was lucky enough to find the web page.. thinking it'd be a million hours away from me, then i find out randy lives 2 hours away, so i drove up there and picked up my kit! Checked out his 240 as well..
Anyways thanks or the nice comments once again.

Just as a quick question, does anybody know what type of 10 spokes are on the 740 on the main page of brickstylz? I'm thinking they're volvo but what model, one of the new s-series?

have you dropped the car any?
i love that kit, i just have qualms with the rear valence. i dont like the hole in the back for the exhaust to poke out. i'd rather it just have a cut out section. i think the rear comes in three pieces, right? i may just leave out the back flat piece and keep the curvies at the side.

Nice car, but I think that "Volvo" windsheild sticker should take a hike. It gives off ricey vibes. Just my opinion, keep it if you must.
