Just been for a look, nice build,

I like your idea on the fuel filler neck, i have the same problem where to put mine, as same as yours it is opposite

Im jealous of your solid body, we need to do loads of bodywork yet, as uk climate is not friendly on classic cars

Some pics of my amazon on the floor for the first time, its very easy to push around now

Mine was rusted up pretty good too. The rail and floor going down under the car under the right side was cracked and separated. I just fixed my rust a few years back before I started all these shenanigans.

Mine was definitely beyond repair as a standard volvo, all main seams were swelled and just dropped to bits in your hands, ive saved it from certain death

Some pics of us lining the doors up, the bmw rear suspension arm mounts, are in our way



You can see it in our way !




Front door fitted and lined up, so no movement in body, braces worked, as expected




We were stumped on a way to sort our small problem of, not been able to close the rear door, due to the bmw rear arm mount,
So after a bit of brain storming, i remembered some slammed vw buses on air ride, and after tubbing out their front arches, they modified the inside of the door so it closed ?
So thats exactly what we did


Blue line is where we are at


PERFECTO !

We ll make a piece to fit back in and modify its door panel.

Door now closes


Its off for a sand blast on rear end to remove rusty crud and bondo/ filler

Will put some pics, up watch this space....

Rear end after a quick sand blast, not pretty









Can you see all the screws to keep the arch in place



Next we made a start on the bulkhead, some of the bmw was removed to neaten it up.

Thanks a lot, we try to crack on so keeps us positive, A small obstacle is round the corner and will slow us down, it is the rear corners, i need my friend to make me some repair panels for said area, you cant buy repair panels for what i need as it s literally dissolved away on the seams, will post pics of it, as and when,

For today a little more on the bulkhead was done, we warmed it up and shaped it just as we wanted it, more than happy with the results so far, once painted you would never even know what we ve been up to ?





















Section of Amazon rear floor, we will use it later and incorporate it to keep it original



More to come soon...

Been busy last few weeks, but a bit more s been done on the amazon.

Rear end now well under construction,

We made some of our own repair panels as they dont exist

Panel behind rear bumper was bad, so we made one





This is for left side and bends round to meet panel under rear reflector, which was made as well.













Other side is same, (turd)









We will do the other side, exactly the same process

Thanks, we feel like we are making some progress, now we can see what we re up against,

Panels weren t to bad to make, we needed to fold a side, and use a shrinker to form it, so it followed same curve as rear wing.

More pics soon

watch this space........

Geez! This is awesome work!

Are you retired from work to have the time to tackle a project like this one?

Now you're going to need this:

1999 Volvo S80. B6284t. Cause is has these thicker 81mm walled bores. This one got its deck closed and shimed by DeeWorks so it'll take some boost without complaining.

How are you going to build your 960 engine to withstand 800 HP and stay somehow reliable? What 960 engine number do you have at hand? A B6304? These engines are not the best choice for a high output turbo T6 build imo...

Motor will be built very soon, it is just been mated to an M3 EVO six speed manual, and we can start to build it,

New rods, pistons, cams, valve guides, head work, crank work, big turbo, big injectors, usual stuff,

Im looking to hopefully twin turbo it, and use a smaller turbo to make it spin up quicker and reduce lag,

Same as a 2004 to 09 bmw 535d

Ok. By new rods I hope you meant forged H beam rods and forged pistons? Are you having anything done to the block itself?
