Default Sticker Bomb Fuel Door

My 16 year old son picked up a fuel filler door at the junk yard over the weekend. He then sticker bombed it with everything he had. Here's the result. We put the original filler door back on because he wants more stickers. Send me a PM if anyone has a bunch of stickers they want to send us.

Need to wrap the stickers around the edges so you can't see the sticker edges or the original paint peeking out underneath. It also helps to use stickers that aren't square (curved edges are more interesting).

Honestly, with that selection of stickers it just sorta looks like bad spray paint. Sticker bombing can work - it's not my "thing" but I know people like it - but the reasons I've just mentioned make this fall a bit flat.

Good tips. My son is still working on it.
I'm glad he's interested in sticker bombing the fuel door instead of stabbing kids at his high school.

First poking the stretch, now stickerbomb, what's next you gonna let him rip off the side trim and let the water into that nasty little dead end area in front of the rear wheel?

I did this to the fuel door on my wagon when I lost the original. Then I turned 17 and decided it was stupid and painted it

Rear spoiler would be great fun.
He wanted to rust the hood so I told him to buy a fuel door and get creative with it instead.

It's a rust belt Volvo after all. What else can be done to ruin it.

That's easy, and par for the course ... cut the springs and crush it because it rides $hitty.

I'm getting a hostile vibe from Redwoodchair for some reason. Not sure what exactly I did for that to come my way. Thanks to everyone for the tips. I get to deal with enough garbage in my life on a daily basis without getting dumped on here too. I enjoy coming to this forum and seeing/learning about the rear wheel drive Volvos out there that we all love.

Who's being hostile?

I'm just calling it like I see it.

Heck I even tossed you a bone with the 745 lip thing.

Rusty paint removered hood, Virgos hanging on by 4 threads, sticker bombs, I'm just wondering what's next?



Surely the rite of Tbricks passage cut springs?

I bought my car with a sticker bombed side mirror and roof rack. It was hilarious when I replaced those parts and all the #StockNissan240DriftKings didn't think my car was cool anymore.

Yup, I've only seen one civic around DC/Baltimore with a sticker bombed fender. I've only seen one e30 with an intentionally rusted hood. See way more lifted / customized Wranglers and SUV's than anything else around here.

I think my son has been watching too much MightyCarMods.

Since you seemed to be involved with the modding, maybe try to help him get into some real functioning and good looking modifications on the car. There are enough ricer fanboys doing stick on mods to their sh*tboxes, all the while cheapening what it is to be a car enthusiast and leaving a trail of molested beat to hell cars behind them. Help him build something he can be proud of, not something be will look at pictures of in 5 years and shake his head.

It's been good so far.
The car already has Turbo sway bars and IPD turbo exhaust.
We first installed a T cam.
David Samuels strut tower brace.
Next installed a B cam. He enjoyed adjusting the valves and putting the cam in.
His auto mechanics class at school installed IPD lowering springs and some new struts/shocks.
So he's enjoying it.
I don't have a problem with the fuel door being sticker bombed. The original fuel door was removed in a minute with 3 screws. It will be quick and easy to swap it back on when he's tired of it.

Ultimately he would like to intall a V8 but I told him that's not gonna happen. I'd rather sell the car and buy a 940 turbo wagon before swapping in a V8.

Anyway, it's been fun so far. It gets him away from the TV and PS3, so that's been great.

We will probably end up doing nothing with the spacers.
I'm keeping my eyes out for a sweet set of MultiX wheels to put on it.

Next job is blower motor replacement!

So what "real functioning and good looking mods" do you guys suggest?

This is basically what Kenwoodchair was getting at, just not as tactful.
