After many hours of prep (filler/sanding) she got the sealer coat applied today. Next is hi-build and more sanding!

Looking good. What color are you painting it?

You going to remove the clips and straighten the filler panel?

Straightened the filler/pulled the clips/sanded/filler/sanded/hi build primered the whole car and the parts;







Today I'm letting the primer dry (raining and high humidity) so I'm turning my attention to prepping the b210ft and m46...






This Trans will be set aside and stored



As will the intake and exhaust/turbo

So I tore into the engine so I could get a break from painting!

First split off the aw71- going to use the
M46



Original engine



In amazing condition!







New rms is in!



The pan comes off tomorrow; what seals should I put on in there? I have seals for the balance shaft and the front camshaft. Thanks!

Oil pump tube seals. Genuine Volvo ones.

Be careful using any aerosols around a primered car. That's a big no no.

Gotcha. Thanks for the tips. I've been diverted temporarily to pick up a new wagon!
800+ miles later...

Thanks! It was a two owner car (first being Volvo of N America). Second owner purchased in 1999 and had it since. It needs typical p80 love (pcv, ac evaporator, heater core...) but it's clean save for the bumpers (Boston city car). Interior is really nice, tires fresh, brakes good so it's a good start!

As for the 242, I'll be putting down color this week! Been block sanding and hi build primering for the past two weeks! It should look good when I'm done!

Thanks! There are many inspiring builds that have helped me figure out what I want to do. I enjoy reading and learning about the enhancements!

Finally some color! Part 1 is the door jams and loose stuff (spoiler, hood hinges, hood and both trunk lids, etc). Had some base left over so I shot the engine bay too. I really like the color!













The color on the phone camera looks darker grey, but it is definitely blue. My shop lighting is not the greatest! Tomorrow I'll shoot the body; almost there!

I was hoping it was grey.
Looks great though!
Underside of the hood is fun isn't it?

Thanks guys. I have more time on the hood than the rest of the car! This one was rough... next time I'm going for a better condition hood, lol!

Prepping for the body paint. First time I've used this 3m foam tape. It is a time saver!

And the final clear coat is complete!















This is my last post for a couple of weeks as we head to Rome. The paint will be well cured and I'll be anxious to reassemble!

I could resist pulling the upper tape; feel like a kid with a Christmas present!

Thanks! It's a lot of work but cars are my art! I find it relaxing to do this work and gives me time to think. The 242 is an amazing platform and this one was an excellent example to begin with. The biggest issue was the paint and that is almost done (the paint part).
