The E-fan from my 242 decided to quit. Glad I had some spare 960 fans in the shed

Funny, I was painting stuff last night on mine as well. Had some Krylon but for some reason it didn't want to dry this time around, so there's a couple finger prints on it, despite sitting overnight.

Wagon is almost done, 140 just needs a bath. Found the radiator is leaking, not the water pump on it. Nothing like last minute show prep. lol

Volvos know when a show is coming...they toy with our emotions

I'm sure you've all done it, but I ran the car open downpipe for yuks. Sounds awesome but I'm SO glad I have a full exhaust

I do it whenever I've got the exhaust unhooked for something. Yup, absolutely mandatory! lol

All buttoned up! Didn't have time to do the center caps and a few odds and ends, but no worries. See you guys in a few hours!

Definitely. Congrats on the placements btw!

The 740 has a few more things coming this summer, but then it will be time to jump into the 242...

My dad brought his LT1 265 and his friend brought his minty 242 turbo so YES, I want to park with them next year. My roomie can bring up my 7 if he doesn't find his own by then. He really wants a pre-90 744

Is there a Davis photo thread yet? I'll drop mine in there.

In local news, there is a Volvo meet at my parent's house every day




Edit: I have to say THANK YOU again to Janspeed for pointing out my strut mount! Between that fix and a new lower control arm the car rides excellent on the freeway now with no pull in the steering

Normally I'd agree but I think they would look nice painted to match the color surrounding the lugs...

No contrast then so no pop.

The trunk hasn't changed much. New wiring on my 4 channel and new door speakers are in the works this summer though

Stock downpipe and o2 sensor setup. the conical 15G goes in with no modifications as long as you clock it properly and can make a bracket for the wastegate

These are going on the 740 later this year. S40 R-design wheels. AZEVs need to go on my 242
