Just have a look at marktplaats for a while and act fast when something pops up.

We have a fine MIG machine we've bought for 75 together with a compressor, I used it to completely restore my car.



Also we recently bought a good TIG welder with 12M of lines and torch for 150 or so, just from a nitwit who couldnt weld and bought a smaller and more expensive one.
Bought a (full) 20L bottle of Argon for €175 on MP, and go

If you wanna buy a new one, a friend of mine who owns a professional autobody shop has a Cebora 165 from Rustbuster.nl and is really satisfied with it.

Great another setback, got the tank under the car. The holes do not agline and the intake hose is busted, good i spotted it.
Thinking of looking for a race tank of 25 liters. It will run on LPG most of the time anyway

Nice, that'll make your life a lot easier. Also, get an automatic welding helmet if you didn't already have one. They are not very expensive and worth every penny when you're working inside or underneath the car.

That probably took quite a while to clean, I'm also removing all the rust from another axle and it's really annoying work to do

It was not that bad the new axle was in better shape rustwise, still when i got a part in my hand i might as wel make it pretty and last longer with a nice antirust treatment.

I used a paintscratcher thingy to get all the dirt off first. then i nice tick layer of hammerrite antirust stuff. Looks pretty neat too! looked less hot when it still was wet but now in back outside dried out i'm pretty pleased. I am just not sure when "reactiestangen" to use. the one on the car have a full sized bushing in them, the ones i got with the newer axle has holes in the bushing (suppouse to be there) it seems to me that those full sized bushings are stiffer == "moare better"

Did not wanna do too much today. Cleaned up all the surface rust under the car and put on some iron/lead coating my dad gave me. After it dries i have to do it again and then i will put on new undercoating for stonechip and salt protection (though im not to sure if i should drive it in snow)






Then i started to poke the little holes that where not there when my friend bought the car 3 years ago been standing still ever since outside so all the places where water could stay still in corners and between bumpers had some bubbles. Sad to see they decay on those spots they could have been prevented if he just fixed the car and drove it.

Seems that the backside of the car (facing the wind in zandvoort) took the bigges hit all on the body. all littles holes..

@ Homer: sure come over here and there will be rivers of cola....

In other news, cleaned up the GT stuff i bought. These came from the other side of the world (AUSSIE)
Apparently they dont know rust there. To make sure it will last in The Netherlands i cleaned and painted it with anti rust and coating

Is that the fuel pump of a 940? I took one from a 940 at a local salvage yard (you know, near Halfweg) and it looks alike. Will need a high pressure pump for the efi conversion too.

Thanks. I will see if I can make the 940 bracket work (I think so) but will otherwise look out for a Turbo one.

You can use one from a normal Volvo 240 with B230/200F engine. Bracket fits on the left side of the car.

Rear axle is back in position with the brand spanking IPD swaybar and red koni's set to tight. Still need to find the HD springs holder stuff so nothing is bolted tight yet but at least the new axle is on in position :-)
