I ordered it from Skandix , currently listed at 177.0 EUR and 50.00 shipping I paid 300.00+ for mine?????

$243.00 shipped is a good deal.

This is a great thread, lucky kid to have a dad so into modding and sprucing up his car for him!

Btw, I solved the Flathood grill dilemma by using Velcro wire mantainance straps that I got from my IT guy, the straps used to clean up wires under the computer desk! They have worked great for years now!

Long time away from here, my son was away at school and has graduated and is back home...and so is the Swag wagon.

soon after coming home, the Swag Wagon was rudely bludgeoned in the right front by a woman in a ford in a Wawa parking lot. After fighting with the insurance, settled for $1490.00 in damages.

Found a 130 silver 88 240 in the pull and pay with nice fenders and a hood for $80.00. Pulled the front end back in place, replaced the right side e-code healight and marker. We and had enough insurance money left to buy some paint and materials. Stripped the fender , door and 1/4 tops, the roof, tailgate and the used hood. Spray bomb primer on the bare spots where I cut thru the factory primer and sanded it with some 600 wet. Painted it in sections from the pinstripes up in the driveway except the roof cowl that we did in a booth. 3 coats of base color and two coats of clear on each section. Quick scuff and polish and it looks pretty good.

New seats and carpet(used from a perfect black DL from a member here) and headliner/ new dash is next!\

Yeah, nice work and good to see you were able to fix it so well.

I just re-read the whole thread and saw that it was the second front end hit it's taken.

Great to see the car still around.

Spent most of the weekend pulling the dash, replacing the blower motor / resistor. What a whore of a job, but nice to have that A/C back in action.

I pulled my parts stash and replaced all the air vents, trim panels and dash trim with either new parts of perfect used parts I have collected over the last few years. Installed 2 new defroster vent grilles I found( two needles in a haystack) and the new Volvo dash from Skandix.


With the perfect seats and carpet I scored from a member here, it looks very close to as new condition now. Just waiting on the new headliner to finish the inside.

I bought two nice visors from here and they are worlds better the the originals, but still just crappy to me.
I imagine that even new they weren't great. I may try to have some made with a sold core and cover in white vinyl.

New wheel, 219.00 for a 350MM Momo, way better than the OEM.
