This was a perfect opportunity to get rid of the leak-prone oil drain hard line by incorporating a flex section (and would have required no welding) oh well.

Curious what it sounded like open downpipe. I was concerned about my exhaust being too loud (940 dp --> 2.25" straight piping over axle) and I was amazed by how quiet it is, mufflers on turbo Volvo's almost seem like a waste of time (on stock diameter piping at least)

Also curious about this washer resevoir install, as I have not yet found a suitable replacement for mine yet.

- leak prone oil drain - The set up that I replaced had a flex section that was leaking.
I didnt know these are prone to leaking - My 850 leaked everywhere but from that line

- sound - If you ever seen the b21ft tractor video it sounded just like that. I drove around like that and to my surprise no one even glanced at the car

- muffler - said muffler but I cut it at the base - I get what you're saying but I installed it because on rare occasions I want to hear my kids in the 3rd seat


- washer reservoir will wait a week or eight - Its small, maybe a quart and it came on pre 1980 245 (i think)

Not gonna lie, I think my favorite part is the burbble, crackle and mini-backfires on decel, combined with the fact that sitting right next to a cop they will look everywhere else for where the sound is coming from

That muffler install looks super cool. How's it sound?

I also love that BUT I already have an 850 with 3 inch full exhaust that does that
and a supercharged t100 with headers and very short exhaust that also does that

Kids still sit there for that reason, Now, they just don't have to yell to let me hear them.

Thank you, I also like it
Inside the car it's very quiet - I hear the intake suction to about 4k then exhaust comes in

REPASTA From here

had a better headliner around so I decided to paint it using SEM interior paint
half way though I ran out and used Sem bumper coater (turns out they are the same)

2-3 tiny spots need to be touched up because I didn't wait for the paint to dry enough
I also need to adjust one or two center bars






flash just brings out all the fuzz on it but you can see that the color is sold and not spotty

Looks good, I just picked up a can of SEM for some map pockets, so I might have to grab a few more and tackle the headliner too.

Did you use satin or landau black?

satin. Its the same color as bumper coater - which is cheaper also
It matched the black part of the visor so well that I didn't even spray both sides.

two cans will do headliner and visors and you will have about a 1/3 of a can left over.

I also used simple green and grease lightning to clean the headliner prior to paint.

Looks great. Does SEM have a color that matches the stock off-white headliner color?

Got around to paining my faded headrest covers.
after doing the job the fabric is really stiff. See how it holds up but I wouldn't recommend it.





they do look better but meh



I also found some all black door panels. They are mint. I painted the backsides with Rustolum Appliance Paint to keep the mold out in the future.

Another great idea, that I will have to steal , and timely too, as my entire interior is currently removed.

much too lazy for that. Chromelicous yo!

I saved them roached out 7/9xx. Guy was selling the whole car for $800 I told him I would put some 14s on it and buy the wheels with good tires for $300. Probably could have bought them for less but I'm still happy.
I didn't like the chrome at first but it grew on me. Since purchase I applied Dave Barton center cap stickers

Thanks.
I used one of those cheap paint rollers. Some panels took 6-8 coats - the cardboard was really absorbent. Put one coat down on each panel and make your way around the lot, by the time you finish with 4th your first panel should be ready for coat #2 and so on... I also recommend you let them dry for 2-3 days before installing. Fumes form this paint will stink up your car (unless you like that)

The other day I installed IPD Turbo Cam with "old" (dont have to remove to adjust) adjustable camshaft sprocket
- all shimmed and ready to go


while there I went on and replaced the alternator bracket bushings.
the poly accessory bushings for some reason only last about 6months on my alternator bracket.... the back one always gets loose and then disintegrates, leaving me with squeaky belt etc...
I finally bought Yoshifab solid bushings - great product

maybe thats why IPD switched compounds


one of them was a tight fit, I just put it in the freezer overnight and it fit fine in the morning.


moved a bunch of stuff last weekend too

Just finished reading all your threads. Lol. I noticed the plate frames on the green '75 245 were from Sacramento, so you're in California? There are a lot of cool Volvo guys that are close-ish, and I think a meet up would be appropriate. Once I get my car up to some better standards I think I'll try to organize something.

Thanks for reading all my suff. There's a few of us in Norcal.
Im in Oroville. Go to Davis or Ikea meet or Cj bbq


I finally got around to installing Willwood calipers on c70 12inch rotors



ended up with brackets made by this guy
http://forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=266037

line kit from honda S2000 Wilwood Brake Flexline Kit 220-10841

wilwood brake pads Wilwood Smart Pad BP-10 Brake Pads 150-8946K

Only modification I had to do was to convert the standard hardlines(brake junction to flex line) to inverted flare
my local mcparts store was out of the correct hardware so I "machined" the standard oem brass one using my drill



They clear 16s but dont fit Gemini wheels - wheels rotate but scraped the willwood logo.
while waiting for 3mm spacer http://www.ezaccessory.com/4_5_Lug_3...acer_p/600.htm Thanks Ken
Im running Hydras up front


not much difference between the two - wonder why all the hate

went back to my old flathood since I picked up another one for my 242 and got a original group A grille



I got my 3mm spacer in but it's too damn hot right now to put it on for the Gemini's to go back on in front


also someone stole my front plate.
It's only $20-25 to replace it but I haven't made time to go to the dmv
