Well yeah, im not very good at "updating" thread.

What i have been doing since last visit?

on last years evening car was traveling to sandblasting:
sandcleaned bottom of car and all marked areas..



engine fitting #1


cleaning car for primer.


painted with standox epoxy primer:



i needed gearbox that would hold engine in 90 degree angle, so i had to make custom one, experimented with cheap getrag 240 (opel R25-D):



and this is current status (preparations for final primer), i also tested some DOTZ wheels on my p1800:

Hello Tbricks,

You have missed some updates, that id like to share.


volvo 240 rear axle installed (uniballs are not forever lasting, and if there is too much vibrations to body, i will upgrade to polyurethane- but then it is atleast tested! ):


lowest position (brake disks are not installed, so offset changes about 12mm):




functional gear stick assy and pedalbox:



due too long "waiting" there has been coming some rusty places on body, it was needed to strip everything once again (really motivating...)..





and new cover "again" on it:

Hello there!

Like usual, im not really good at making updates..

since last post there has changed a lot, for example the car is driveable! Currently without turbo but this can be fixed during cold winter evenings.

but lets start from where i last posted (i will put small picture in thread and big picture as link)...

added 40kg additional weight (1,5mm STP and double layers around gearbox and rear axle)

http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...2932&mode=view

next step was to generate interior for that car, since original looked like that:

http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...4249&mode=view

there was almost nothing left to save... even iron tubes inside seats were totally rusted.

ofcourse i wanted that everyone know what car i have


http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...3233&mode=view

there was selected 3 different colours for interior: Black leather, Begonia leather and Red yarn, begonia was selected based on car external colour and to have some "spark" inside car.

For new seats as base to work with i choosed recaros, as those were sitting most lower position and seemed to fit with my requirements. This was first testing with selected materials:

http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...3279&mode=view

Due i am also family guy, i needed back seats to be "real"

http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...3489&mode=view
added seatbelts from volvo 850 (removed some parts from spring mechanism to allow seatbelt to work in any angle.. FWD guys should know that on some weird car angle its not possible to pull also front V850 seatbelts)



and all assembled:
(for you it seemed like 1 second but it was actually 1 month work :D )

http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...3633&mode=view


http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...3634&mode=view


next task was to start with wires. Due i am professional Megasquirt installer here, i can handle it by myself


https://www.upload.ee/image/5884817/IMAG0397.jpg

http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...3640&mode=view

As original dashboard gauges were filled with rust, i decided to upgrade those also. many evenings in network ended every time @ speedhut webpage and so these were choosen as best fit:




As P1800 does not have standard size gauges and my current one was having lots of "usage marks" , it was also needed to make new backplate for dashboard. For that we used something that is called "bear tongue" in estonia:


and testing on sample piece:

http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...4004&mode=view
and ready to go pieces:

http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...4001&mode=view

first look of dashboard:

http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...3999&mode=view

and something interesting for hydraulic handbrake guys first look to new hydraulic handbrake that has legit locking mechanism! ofcourse its now powederpainted to avoid my ugly friend, Mr Rust:

http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...4002&mode=view

all rubberparts were also needed to replace, for that i used VP autoparts from sweden:


http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...3243&mode=view


and after 3 years.....

Current state of car:

https://www.upload.ee/image/6226483/DSC_01641.jpg


https://www.upload.ee/image/6226488/autumn_p1800.jpg

what is going to happen in winter? well i have some parts that needs to be installed:

http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...3366&mode=view
Does anyone from here know something about those rods.. are those fitting in or is it needed to mill some meat out of B5234/B5204 block to have those move freely?

and turbo.. Garrett GT3071R with single entry heat side:

http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...3365&mode=view

http://foorum.volvoclub.ee/download/...3363&mode=view

ofcourse there will be bigger injectors and correct fuelpump selected (currenty installed 550cc injectors and walbro 255 similiar fuel pump will be too weak for that install...)

anyways, Cheers!

BR,
Martin

There has been some time since i last posted, but no worries i am still here and all ok! :D

in total i drived on season y2016 about 1500km, it was both pleasure and pain. Pleasure if somebody saw car and throw thumbs up and pain if i had to drive over 30 minutes continuously...
painful for ears and body was rear axle fixing points with uniball...



u know, in one point you feel every cylinder firing...

so currently i am in middle of changing uniball points to polyurethane one. in same time it is smart to change open differential into something more fun... torson differential made in taiwan and sold in usa :D


and one more pain... there was 2.0 litre R5 engine with 8.5 compression ratio without turbo just slowing me down... i managed to get magical 73kw on wheels with that on dynojet dyno. so i needed turbo and after i opened engine for rebuilt i saw that i need to mill block and in this case also put new pistons inside that- cylinder walls were total worn out crap. OK. To combine works, i had 2.3L crankshaft waiting already few years and so i sourced new mahle pistons for 2.3L engine (b5234t3) those are enought reliable for my 500hp project, no need to waste money on custom pistons.




and of-course i had 2.4L 125kw intake cam VVT head was just waiting around to be used

i tested cam movement on both edges and for 2.3L crankshaft i had to retard intake cam about 15 degrees to have about 1.5mm clearance between piston and valve. On stock markings valves managed to touch pistons on full intake cam advance (played with dual wrench to test that)

so i had some additional time on that evening and thought that it would be cool to test that crappy 13G turbo with stock manifold, and then even make oil lines to fit..

i am still feeling sorry for that... there is still time for summer and i already installed kids turbo, even tho there is garrett gt3071r waiting to be used

and then again i am finding something annoying in car.. i am not satisfied with the steering wheel, it seems to cut half the interior and not fitting in place.. so i am testing different ideas:





meanwhile, p1800 just sleeped and wanted to be pictured...
