Stripping the bottom
clear some rust
widen all wheel arches
make some space for the 4-link suspension

Thinking of making a new better cage with proper welding
a lot of work to do!

Haa, nee dat is die zeker niet.
Iedereen die bezig is met Volvos gaat of naar Kees, of naar Betsema scheepsmotoren.
trouwens volgens mij is kaasie niet zo actief meer op het forum hier?
Of zie ik dat verkeerd

Yes I did, but still not happy about it though
planning on cutting it all out, and let a professional weld in a new one with FIA and KNAF licenses on it
and tig welding would look a lot better I guess

In my head it is a nice build.
got alot of plans to do, but i also need to realise them,
I don't got that much time since I'm away from home for my work.. (6 am till 7:15pm plus time to eat at home) makes it around 8PM when I'm ready to get on the volvo..
and yeah some days I really like to do nothing and just watch a movie and get some rest

Still a lot of work to do,
Still a lot of welding left to the chassis
I'm collecting money for the 4-link suspension, and coilovers.
need to find some good looking 17"/18" rims to cover the big brake kit I'm planning on..
probably need to life the axle tunnel also since I'm planning to lower the ride height for shows

I bought some Futura wheels
Widened the rear arches
Welded the whole body
Coated the whole floor
Upgraded the cage a bit
Bought coilovers
Made strutttowers in the back
Bought a pedalbox
Bought a 16T turbo
Bought a heated front windshield
And bought like 6 compomotive Braid rally wheels
