I have been polluting the VanCity volvos thread with my updates... figured i should just do a thread.

brief history.
bought wagon in 2015 for 600$ approx. 390,000kms
day1 with dads 740

some issues.. bad alternator, no valve cover gasket, exhaust leaks, no guibo joint

leaky fuel pump

Guibo whats that

good points were it was manual rwd wagon.

swapped alternator at farm proceeded to drive 30kms home with no guibo and virtually no valve cover gasket... smokey.

ordered parts from ipd some were bought local.

got the car on the road proper in a couple weeks..

lots of road trips for work ... lots of miles put on had to install some Moog overoad springs

installed Mazda 3 seats at some point

popped a head gasket on my bday one year downtown Van that was fun towed back to mission for dirty replacemnet

re-did headgasket couple months later proper.

at some point I put in a G80, met a Levion at the auto recyclers..

many suspension bushings... some failed new ones. dont buy cheap.

did bilsteins HD, new brakes
need new strut casings mine were 90 with the welded spacer

new ones were still crusty

My old springs were done... the other struts came with better springs.

but got it all cleaned up.

pretty much brings me to now when i had a week off to look for a water leak and ended up cutting rust.

that was 4 months ago...

still finding more.

here is rust repair gallery.
