Default Mr.Borrie’s 965

Ever since my son was born I was looking for a new daily estate.
It's been difficult to find a good replacement for my S90 with the budget i had in mind.
We talked about it here http://forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=335670

During my search and trying to sell off the empty shell of the 780 Donor i ran into a guy that had a project 965 for sale. Long story short we traded the cars with pockets closed.

Not really what i was looking for lookers wise, but considering the trade i have no complaints.











And offcourse the empty 780 shell as the trade in

Sweet ride man. Thinking of a 960/V90 myself. How is the gas mileage? 1:7,5 is what I get in my 940 on G3. Guess you're looking for a drivers seat as well?

I have had de S90 with the 3.0 for a while and it more thirsty for sure. Always go for G3 its worth it. This is the 2.5 so maybe a little better mileage wise. I think it can come do 1:7,5 on LPG for sure.

yeah looking for both front seats, bumper and hood, but i'll get the APK first before i pour more money into it.

The passengerside door had a broken cable, replaced it yesterday. No photo's.
Getting close on being ready for the APK check. Things i think that need to be done before that:


1. Check the Exhaust again for leaks
2. Replace the alternator
3. "new" battery
4. Get "new" headlight indicators

Drove around 1000KM with the car now and it seems to get a bit more alive and more agile. Looks like its going to do allright. Going to look into fixing the looks of the car now.
