He got the livery kit this last week and did it himself as it's his toy Volvo. It's a manual swapped forged T5R on 24 psi hybrid K24 with the usual nice suspension and BBK.

If you're on any of the Volvo FB groups he's easy to follow.

Was really fun doing a "meet" today and being careful and getting a day of normalcy.

Found an older pic, sold the 244 since then, the 242 no longer has V50 rims on it. I liked them though.

Before and after…





Rest in pieces. Nothing really salvageable left on that shell.

Yeah. Pretty sad to send any 240 to the crusher these days.

Used to be just a few years ago I’d buy a running, driving 240 for $200. Pull off a few parts that I needed then send it to the junkyard. These days I pull everything that may be of use to me or someone else if the shell isn’t worth saving. Which this wasn’t, even though it was a late ’93.

Please note the high dollar jackstands.

I’m in the process of doing the same with my 1990 245. It’s very rusty

By far the most beat Volvo in the rotation but also my fav. If I can ever get my life together and find a place that would take it I would fix it up. I have the parts cannon ready to fire, (mint black leather interior, NOS SE pieces and all NOS lights, white R Sport wheel) but alas time is so fleeting and life can really kick you in the balls lol

The other plan is just to get in it and push us both in the lake. A true Viking funeral

What's broken?
Needs a few things:
1.Battery (waiting for a 5 lb lithium job...hopefully it's a better solution than putting an H5 in a butt cheek)
2.Some things from waterjet (WP pulley spacer...realigned the timing belt, recaro seat rail adapters)
3. Timing belt idler pulley
4. revise turbo oil drain routing

I think that's it

Looking good!

I use flickr for image hosting, you can import from laptop or phone.

Works great for DSLR camera pictures
