I'm excited to see what you do with this, nice find!

I have the capsules and the endcap things that hold them in, but not the brackets. Let me know and you can have them for the cost of shipping. No cracks or chips, some light pitting.

Thanks, they are getting harder to find especially the 80s ones.

Thanks man, I missed having a Volvo so much! Still sorting through which direction I want to take the car. The more I drive it, the more I'm thinking of making it my DD. Fix Heat/AC then lowering springs, IPD sways, Hydras, MBC set to 12PSI. Basically the wagon version of my old 91 Coupe.

Do you mean the housing and little pieces to the left and right of the lens? I would love to have them! I can just get the Uro brackets. Not as worried about those since they wont see as much UV and if they fade they arent really visible anyway.

Yep! Original Bosch capsules too. Send me a PM with an address and I can probably have them headed your way sometime next week.

The insides of the 100A Denso I bought from KJetsonaPlane looks great so I decided to install it as is tonight. Installation was as easy as I remembered from when I did it on my 780 a few years ago.



The car originally had a 100A Bosch in it. After installing the Denso at idle the revs no longer dip when the lights come on and the heater fan is turned on. I could probably go for a shorter belt since the tensioner is maxed out but so far so good!
