Rear brakes lines done and started on the fronts. Pressed in the long BNE studs on the front hubs and mounted up the Brembos. Making progress...slowly.

Been a while since I've checked in on your progress. Car is coming along great. Sounds like we may have enough local folks for a cruise in at some point.

We could start an Acworth 242 club- I have 2- ‘81 with LS swap and a stock ‘83 flathood turbo.

Yo man, Beige is the like the best Volvo color ever! You don't even know how lucky you are...

I just picked a swag table for my bandsaw, can't wait to use it for exhaust stuff. I got mine with the foot switch.
