Is this really the same one that was for sale about a month ago for like 8000? Such a shame.


I'm almost certain it was the same one for sale before.

Jesus Pete... Grab some donor material you did. With all the floor you cut out I'm surprised that thing was still able to stand up on those old wheels without buckling!

I snatched the driver's door window motor and with that giant hole you created I had a nice little spot to stand.

Btw for anyone wondering...I cracked open the head of that beige 242 in the yard and to my surprise what cam was in it????? Slotted M cam. WTF? Why would anyone swap to an M? Head looked like it had been pulled recently. The car has an m46 and a very very clean brown complete interior if anyone needs stuff.

Wish I could have taken more.

But couldn’t move the front stand safely.

Wonder when the beige went to the main yard.

Got places with my car now though.

So you can keep the A cam and still sell the car as a runner.

That's looking really good!

I've got some serious rust repair to do on the Snot Rocket. I just bought six more months of insurance, so I guess I'm not planning on crushing it. I'm elbows deep in a TDI swap for my turd of a van, so that's been taking up all my free time (and more).

Sim great to see your response. You still fabricating?

What van are you doing the swap on?

I keep half an eye on this thread still.

I just wrote my millwright red seal exam, still fabricating and mechanic-ing.

The van is a 1995 Volkswagen Transporter white panel van I bought for work. It's crappy and old and slow, but surprisingly relaxing to drive and capable of hauling 800kg of tools while getting 25mpg.

The rare old dirty mechanical diesel is coming out in favour of a common modern clean computer controlled diesel from a 2004 Jetta. Half a liter less displacement, one fewer cylinder, and about 50 more horsepower. Plus if it blows up, I can buy a replacement anywhere. I'm expecting to push the van into the thirties mileage-wise, but it will take quite a few kilometers to pay for this foolish project on fuel savings. Mostly it's about reliability, emissions, and making it up the Coquihalla faster than the semis.

Still dumb enough to think that adding a turbocharger is a good idea.

I'll post a link to some pictures here once I have something to show for myself.

Super cool Sim. Congrats on the red seal.

You are constantly learning, challenging, and growing who you are.

Also, pretty sweet 2003 S/V40 front leather seats?

Selling all my 240 manual Tx swap parts I've collected over the years. Pretty much everything there for a 2.4 swap minus a clutch fork.

https://abbotsford.craigslist.org/pt...293053328.html

$800 firm for local TB members. No interest in shipping anything, nor splitting it up.

Reach out through the CL ad and mention TB.

I can see the modification progress on this thread but I feel like it will take some time to finish it.

As the Vancity Collective we pride ourselves on the power of consensus-fest to resolve anything. It took us 6 years to agree on the name.

You have embraced our values well.

Me too. Almost never check this thread as I'm Volvo-less again, but good to see it's still active and you guys are still around.

also, as a lock-down thing my kid got me to try minecraft so I finally recognize Mark's avatar.

We should plan an outdoor, covid restriction-friendly get together!
Dr. Bonnie says ten people outdoors is cool now, right?
Whaddya all say?

Also. Pete... Nice work on the rust repair. Keep at it.

Meet up sounds good.
Maybe I can tie up the drivers side and get it back together.



So much sealant over what appears to be an old repair


More holes....


How much of a sedan is the same as wagon?
