Thinking about but I need to try out the m46 for a little while and verify the rear end ratio.

under the car last night addressing the Overdrive wiring. Three bare wire on top of the transmission. Had to drop the transmission down to put two back on the switch. could not see them and could only get two finger on them. Got it back together and does not work! don't know it if mixed up the switch wire but will trace down the relay before Licking that dog again. Also noticed small oil leak on the filter and the banjo bolt. will keep check and may wait for oil change before fixing that.

Finally looked into it deeper today and the relay was not seated proper in the socket, also not in the proper location. Works great now.

No progress and I have need driving it for the most part like I got it. Changed some small thing that make me sick. Exhaust came apart the other night so I parked it. Still have not had time to pull and ship the sway but warmer next week so I will get started. Looking at other projects got me wanting to go deep so next week I pull sway seats and carpet and get back on it.

Did pull the seats and need to clean it out and pull the carpet check the floor and
Put down some insulation. Decided to give a Texas ten to get seat covers installed since I don't have time. He informed me the cover I purchased for leather is not leather and after looking close I agree. Got one more trip this week and got to get that Honda done and gone next week. After that going to be all over it for a week or so. Still have not had time to pull the sway but will Wednesday.before leaving

Picked up the seats and wish I had done it my self. A button was missing and the guy did not have the good sense to take one of the old ones and stick in the hole. Although not leather the look a good deal better than the dried out busted up leather ones.

Trying to figure out how.

Finally looked and photo bucked want me to upgrade to the tune of $399 per year for third party posting. Guess I will be looking for something new and free.

Grown a little jealous of everyone else's nice flat hood and all the cheap ones out west, I have decided to work with what I have. Spend all day striping one and still got another 2-3 hours to go just stripping. Doing all the work myself and may have someone else paint it. Paint just the hood and buffing the rest of the thinning paint and no way it's going to match. At first considered flat black but might have to live with that way too long. Got other projects but this is getting my feet wet and I can't afford the 5k for the work I like. Will post pictures to keep up with progress (when I figure out how to). Looks like I will have 3 Volvo project going at the same time.

I pulled everything off Photosuckit and started using Imgur for any site that won’t host photos on the site. If I can figure it out, anyone can.

Been playing with that and flicker but if I finished stripping the hood today. It’s cold here and a lot of snow south of me in B’ham but none in the Shoals. :-) so I will be working on the red wagon Saturday in the cold.
