That should be pretty straightforward, I believe headliner can stay the same and you get +5 cool points

Yes, but the 780 moonroof is not interchangeable with the rest of the 7/9 cars

Swapped out an M46 with a broken overdrive for an M47 today. Thought I'd share some fun pictures.

Bought the car with a broken OD, and its always been hard to shift. Finally figured out why.



Bellhousing bolt shook itself free. Didn't get far.


I don't think the clutch fork pivot ball is supposed to be worn down this far


started wearing into the clutch fork


The M46 that came out next to a slightly cleaner one

Very sweet, spotted an original 242gt in my area in upstate ny... Minimal rust at the rear mudflap mount but otherwise great condition.. Always loved their unique styling... Would still love to have one...

Beautiful! I have a question -- on the bumper trim, do you:
* Source used turbo trim from the junkyard / another car
* Buy new trim from Volvo NOS or GCP, etc?
* Take non-turbo trim and paint / modify?

Thank you We need to source used trims. The black bumpertrim is not the hardest to find. I think GPC have new trims but not black, just chrome.

Sharp looking car. It almost makes me want another 945 T. Almost.

Your paint makes me sad about my 93 (with clear going bad!)

Looks great!

It's been a little while. Here's a slightly dated photo before a few things were tidied up (including center caps).

245, after about an inch of graupel fell earlier today. Reinstalled the Yakima rack, due to damaged roof bracing, causing the panel to buckle if heavy weight is on it over the front dome light area.
