Ah, I see. I did not want to assume as it did look close enough to be in the water jacket.

A short time ago I was helping some friends move something that was near Gullhella(sp?) with a V70 and we were also slightly ;) overload, of course I happen to be driving and we end up getting stopped. After some... maneuvering, no fines but we did get a very, very stern talking to, and made a few small changes to the car(go). If you do that regularly, you're much braver than I. haha.

Pre/Post wash look great, I'll always welcome more shots of your car.

Shame you can't take the rear seat out without triggering an air bag code. Between the spare tire and rear seat you could shed 30 kgs. I'm a little OCD.

Great build, I can't believe how clean the engine bay paint has remained.

Yes, that would be easy

Thanks, Enginebay is in good condition. Just had to wash and polish good

Nice to see you here. Good to see the progress on your car

I do like like the colour, not one I would have chosen but it does look spot on with good wheels.

I'm so glad in the UK you can tow pretty much what you want with a 240 and they do tow heavy loads with ease

Thank you I was very skeptical about the color, but since the bodywork was so good, I bought the car. Now the color has grown on me and I like it very much..

I bought the Link from a Friend's company. JE-Engineering. He sell's LINK and VIPEC

Such a clean car and thoughtful build! Keep it coming please. I think that color was called "Rose Beige" here. I've only seen a few 242s with that color. It's warmer than the more common tan & Artesia Beige (137) which has a lot more gray in it. Your color works well with the cleaner styling of the home-market 1981 model.

Don’t think that’s Rose Duder - mine’s Rose and is much lighter than that. ‘Course - camera, lighting, internet, phone/pad/laptop - who knows. Nonetheless - if take a few of the pics of his car in the sun and compare to Volvo online color charts, to my eye it comes closest to 137 Artesia Beige/Mist Gray.

The local Volvo dealer invited old Volvo cars for spring meet and free barbecue food. Of course, I had to go with both cars. My little brother was a driver on my blue car, here is a picture from when he entered the area
