Default JensAs 242 Turbo "Veemer"

Hi,

I don´t know if everyone is familiar with the term Veemer, but thats what we in Sweden call a Volvo with a Bmw engine and in my case with turbo .

I have been building this car for about 4 years give or take. I bought the car from a guy that lives halfway up in Sweden like a 620 miles from were I was living when I bought it and were I live now.

But we met up in Stockholm that is halfway for both of us and finished the deal. Then I drove it ALL the way home (no trailer) without insurance, MOT and wrong plates for the car (highly illegal here and I don't recommend it, but I was young and stupid ).

This is how it looked like when I brought it home:


Some miscellaneous pictures from some years ago:

More coming another day, I hope you find it interesting

If so leave a comment

Sometimes I even suprises myself

Anyone got any suggestions on how to get rid of the old bushings? :hihi: 8)

Struts welded 8)


And some paint on them to, maybe they will need another coat :thumbright:


Front support arms.


Rear support arms.


Mounted my alu-doorsides in the front, the back ones will take some more persuasion :hihi:


Hood with hoodpins. I will probably buy a plastic hood in the future and install Aerocatch locks instead

I love my Aerocatch latches. Paint a bright dot on the underside of the lever and you can easily see that they’re open.

Some stuff has happened, I will go with 305mm brakes on my 940 struts. Then I have made a stainless holder for my tablet. Then hopefully the support arms will go of to paint in the beginning of this week

Great. Thanks.

What do you think about the fitment? Do they allow for the inner window scraper to be installed?

I've got those 305mm rotors on my 940. Skandix abutments for mounting the 850 calipers..... or will you fit others?

I understand the "young and stupid" comments early in this thread.....when I was 20 a friend and I put his license tags on my newly purchased sedan; the next morning (after a long night of alcohol and girls) I looked at the tags closely and noted they were TRUCK tags! Young and stupid, the same world wide.......

I did follow this tutorial: https://www.volvoforums.org.uk/showthread.php?t=156900
So I think I'll go with 850 calipers

And I ordered the abutsments from a Volvo dealer, and it's the same as those Skandix sells.

I think it's funny that it's the same world wide, now I don't feel so alone anymore
