It is apparent that a lot of the bumpers on these cars from Sweden have been modified by joining pieces together. Does anyone know how that is done? I'm assuming some kind of plastic welding?

ive seen people join two pieces with small sections of metal riveted to both pieces, then a body filler or fiberglass over that to smooth it out.

There's everything from rivets, glue, plastic welding etc... Personaly I temporarily joined the pieces together with plastic welding (i.e. melted them together with a soldering iron) then took a copy of the result and made a new one out of fibreglass...

Thanks. But why not just use the bumper you joined together? Isn't the plastic better than the fiberglass?

tomcat 01-16-2011 05:56 PM

As I'd only plastic welded it I wasn't confident to use it as a permenant item, that and the fact that as I pulled it out the mould it spllit again...

JGSBVolvo 01-16-2011 06:04 PM

Ok, Thanks. Just curious. Where in the UK are you from? I'm originally from there. Are there many modified volvos over there? The only one I knew of was BIG Pete's before it was wrecked...Bye the way what did you do to the back bumper?

I'm from lancashire, yeah there are a fair few modded volvox now. Back bumper hasn't been touched yet but itll also be getting a v70 lower half.

this thread needs more 940's

JGSBVolvo 01-17-2011 10:50 PM

Thanks Tomcat. Yorkshire myself. That fiberglass bumper looks good. If you are going to all the trouble of making it out of glass do you also sell them as a kit?
Also, do you know, if is it better to use the lower half of a V70 rear bumper on a wagon in lieu of a S70/S90????

JGSBVolvo 01-17-2011 11:04 PM

Can anyone else out there offer some advice on the joining these bumpers pieces together?

Not sold any yet but yes I will sell them, if your interested pm me.

I would think that the shipping to US would be a fortune.
FYI, my car is the grey wagon in the Inspiration for 740s thread, page # 2 post # 49.
it's an 87 740 turbo wagon with V90 and 960 parts and pieces.

I was incredibly close to writing them but I mean of course we absolutely. We use something called plastic welding that you wrote. Is there much guides on the subject at least on our Swedish pages.

Dont look to much on the exhaust though :P

It was a temporary build, I´ve bought a 2meter 3" straight pipe that i put on the car :P My stock exhaust died on a speed bump :P

mojam 02-03-2011 07:00 PM

Has anybody tried a 960 and a V70R Phase 2 front bumper?
