I wouldn't jumped into this project if i don't have access to MIG and all the body working tools, and a place where i can do it. But in this way, it just seems to be a great idea, i just have to work on it.

Audi 20v N/A is a little happier in higher revs as i noticed, but its somewhat the same sound as the Volvo 20v. awesome
I'm planning to put a B5254S in it, the biggest 5 cyl Volvo N/A engine. I don't want to mess around with a turbo for a while, as i don't have that much money. 170hp is enough, the sound is what i want so bad.
Talking about originality, i don't really care. But the overall look of the car will be original for sure. When i'll get to the engine swap, i'll conserve this B21A+BW55 combo with all its stuff for the future, police here is really tight on stuff like engine change, suspension mods, etc.
Even if you change the engine to a totally same type, you have to pay a little money just to change the engine number in the cars registration papers... Bureaucracy.

In my town the police jumped on all the lowered cars. They just take your cars reg papers if something is wrong (in the officers mind, maybe) and you have to take the car to a stricter inspection, where the car have to be in 100% stock condition.
Its funny how a lot of guys here cruised with badly lowered cars for years, and no one was against them, but now its just ridiculous.

B5254S into a 244? well i think its time to start saving some money.. do you have any idea how to put that engine into your car? because its a fwd engine and its mounted horizontally.. soo.. V6 from 960 would be easier imo..or some 2,3 16v redblock

There are some guys who already did that, its not that hard this way.

First patch finally welded on, zinc primer applied on the inside. Things start to get serious now.

Made a cute drain hole into the floorpan, a little plastic tube will be added to reduce the diameter.

Not too fast progress, as i'm doing it alone, and i think a lot about how to do this one and that one... But hell yeah, it will be damn good to cruise with it again.

Awesome job on the rust repair! You have more patience then I do, as I wouldn't be able to handle all of that, but I admire your bravery in conquering such a task.

Cant wait to see the end result of all your work. Keep it up.

Its in kilometres only, but i can't wait to show it at car festivals. It will be hella confusing to the others when they look at that odometer.

Sadly I'm often in dilemma about how to cut this and weld that, and thats what really holds back the whole process. When i finally make a patch from fresh sheetmetal, its fortunately fast from that pont.

And what makes me feel better about owning a Volvo and doing this job:

Just a ~20 year old Mazda:


~20 year old Suzuki Swift:

~20 year old mk3 Golf:


And this 34 year old Volvo wasn't garage kept either, and has waaay more kms than these...
It really deserves the love, as it was loved by the previous 2 owners.

Nice work man, seeing this makes me happy about the small amount of rust fix it needs compared to this

Good for you, hope I can make you feel better. And this is just a 244...

Anyway, I was on a holiday, but a little progress was made yesterday. Finally welded on the missing part of the inner sill, grinded it and painted. Now the inner sill is 100% complete.




And created this piece, little welding and grinding still required, but came out great.




And was also busy trying to make normal spotwelds with this little machine, because my brothers '86 Audi Coupe is waiting to get its roof welded on.



And here is my buddys Cabrio with the 20v N/A awesomeness.


Pretty damn cool to ride in this one.

I'm doing it all alone
Btw I'm located in Győr, near the border.

This was also welded on, and a patch was made to the rear section:

Nagyon szépen haladsz. Szerintem a veterán Volvon is sokan kíváncsiak lennének de az igaz hogy itt nagyobb a pörgés.
Good work!

Ok, észben tartom.

Anyway, todays progress:
Got this patch welded on:



And finally i removed the centre console sheetmetal to repair all the rust underneath.


It was a pain in the ass to remove this, but its finally out.

I even had to cut the right sill to drill out the spotwelds, because the inner sill is damaged and i did not have access from the inside...
