You will really have to address the bore thickness issue if you have a 2.9L motor at hand and have high boost figures in mind.

But looking at the metal work you've so far I'm sure you will do your homework right!

Can't wait to see the updates on that build!

Update..........

We started to join our rear inner arches to the bmw chassis.









From inside.













Boot floor saved from earlier, we want to use it, so it looks like its from sweden still.


Nice fit, perfecto.




All cut away now




We are about to construct our spare wheel well, so will put some pics up ASAP

Rear end is now a lot more sturdy, you can see the bars to keep it all lined up are now removed .

We cut all boot floor out, as we decided it would be easier, and look better if we made our own



We folded some steel, to use for our floor support


X2


All cut back to near rear diff








We folded some more steel, we will use it later...




More to come, today we are about to bead roll some steel sections of our boot well,

We plan for it to look as cool as we can

Incredibly awesome what you are doing. How many would have even saved that car as stock?

Thanks for your positive comments

I know, it was a turd, next stop was definitely a scrap yard,

But ive saved it, and it will be more awesome than ever.

I look forward to when all this bodywork is done,

We should be able to fit the motor soon

We ve been busy on other projects, so not done a lot recently,

But now our new panels have arrived, we re back on with it.





Also our motor is back, a clutch and conversion plate was made to take our 6 speed e36 M3 EVO transmission







Transmission we will use, m3 evo



Back corner is almost restored, it looks really nice !





Will put some more pics up soon

The rear of this thing turned out to look pretty incredible. Kudos on solid ideas and execution! Pretty brilliant to use the Volvo load floor and VW engine lid in the way that you did.

Hows the fit of those new front panels? Typical reproduction fit issues or worse? I'm considering getting a new nose for my car since mine is so bent, but I'm always skeptical of aftermarket panels.

Panels fit perfect as in, they are genuine OEM VOLVO panels

We ve been sat since September, waiting for Volvo to send their presses back from Poland to Sweden, and re start production,

Its totally delayed our amazon project, so now we need to act fast

Now we can line our front end up and proceed with our project,

Amazing you can order new panels, as mine were terrible and to find replacements is near impossible, you can order fibreglass ones, but to me dont look right
