Default Wave's 242R-Project

Hi everybody,
I have couple of Volvos and one ongoing Project. In this Project i will use a little bit different engine option. I will not use turbo because I prefer old American muscle cars.
This is my first bigger Project and i hope you find it interesting.


Fitting the wheels.


Front spring parts


Front bottom arm welded


Bracing kit for rear bottom arm


Rear bottom arm welded and sanded.

First blew all the parts, then powderpainted them, paint and varnish. I hope that now they can withstand heavy use.



I need to modify the oil sump.




I tried the plasma cutter.

Edit-returned a bit later and it's all working!

I will make a big aluminum tank on the top of the shaft- this will maximise the capacity in the booth. Capacity 80 liters.



The interior is so neat that i want to keep it as original as possible, but the seat should be sportier.



Here it is.



Hand brake parts

I already mentioned the originality a few posts above, but I'm just commenting out of respect again. You have some very creative ideas. Love the seats.

Thank you for the positive feedback

Jep, you can get this engine from Opel Vectra ja and Opel Omega. And Omega MV6 model.

My friend has this engine guite original and the engine is really rancid and received oxygen really drastically without any problem for over ten years. And the best thing is the sounds which resemble boosted motorbike.
I started to thing about how good this engine can get if I tuned it properly. Well, I will se it next summer, hope.

I think too that seats managed very fine, factory-sighted and supported me very well
