    My Red car got hit for like the 5th time since I've had it (NONE OF THEM MY FAULT) and i just got tired of sinking money into a body that wasn't straight, among other issues I just didn't have the will to fix. It had so many things wrong with it despite everything I did and other than it being stupid fast it was somewhat annoying to drive. I haven't done a photo shoot yet, but everything that was wrong with my red car is right with this car. It's so much nicer to drive. This is my plan! Except with the koni yellows I have. At this point I think lowering springs are too much of a trade off, especially since I don't even track my car. Are you happy with that setup considering you do autox and stuff?

    2014 XC90 - 71k miles - 1 owner and dealer maintained and in great shape - every single option possible (sovereign hide leather in CHESTNUT, 19's, wood wheel, blah blah) Selling our 2013 GLI and this is taking over for my wife. I wanted a 17+ XC90 R-Design T5 but needed something I wouldnt have a monthly payment with for now

    Been doing a little bit of work here and there on the E46 330i. I was getting it ready for the local BMW CCA AutoX and the occasional HPDE but who knows how this season will go now. H&R race springs Koni Actives (came on the car, not fan. Not enough travel for the H&R's. Looking at ST XTA coilovers.) E46 M3 front sway ECS Tuning rear sway bar Turner Camber front plates Godspeed rear camber arms Ultra Racing front strut brace Garagistic rear strut brace Garagistic stainless brakes lines ATE Amber fluid EBC Yellow Stuff brake pads (damaged box dirt cheap πŸ™‚) Corbeau FX1 Pro seat DS1's with Federal RS-RR's Also did a tune up. Coils, Plugs, hot air intake (factory box was cracked / broken), fuel filter, valve cover gasket, diff fluid and transmission fluid. Also might throw on the mechanical fan delete I have sitting in the garage. Still need to install the Bimmerbrake headers. And at some point do the manual swap (picked that up for $300 😁). It came with some rice-tastic headlights and taillights swapped them back to stock.

    Still a lot going on with the build. This year we are going AWD!!! I have fully switched over to YouTube now as my main platform. Below are some of my latest videos. Checkout the full channel here : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXbU3yYxswA5F4Ep_WyXelw

    The wing is nuts! Looks awesome, but just to OTT for me. I wasn't planning on doing the "iCSONONOVE" or the "b", but I'm going to do the door lettering if I can get it produced for a resonable cost in a matching red. did a paper mock up of the lettering also made lexan headlamp covers - I hadn't noticed it at first, but the original version had them Cut from the basic template, then heated and creased the panels (clamped in a vice) for each side. some trimming required after the fact of course four little "L" brackets will retain each panel. Took some small conduit brackets I had laying around & bent them into the required "L", added a M4 rivnut, and primed/painted. ...and chopped an inch of so off the 960 spoiler chin I had melded into the fibreglass version

    Dropped in a wooden steering wheel from a C70 (I think) over the weekend. Was straightforward thanks to Robert DIY's video. Now I just need a wooden shift knob...anyone? Or, any info on converting a S40 shift knob to work in a P80?

    Finally all back together. The car itself is far from pretty but I’m happy with how it’s going under the hood.

    Bought a pretty beat up black 850 R. The interior, was grungy, has a broken door panel, couple of broken vents and a few other issues that need attention. The exterior had some of the worst paint I've ever seen on a Volvo. I used my quarantine time to wrap it in a color shift gloss metallic blue/green vinyl from Vvivid. First time ever attempting to wrap a car, so I'm pretty damn happy with the results.

    Thank you - I liked it just red, but.... it needs the accents - this completes the body design. redid the nose decal, made it narrower to keep the pin stripe spacing even added xpel film under the rear ducts - those areas are already getting stone chipped

    Put the Comets and R bumper back on in preparation for spring (it got into the 60s last week..) Then it snowed.

    Very cool. Definitely ID with all the problem solving required. You have taken it all to an awesome level with the CAD development!

    I have seen people drive with a leaking check valve for years. You will still experience the hard start unless you fix it. I have not personally done this, but I know you can splice a check valve into the fuel line. Might be worth looking into.

    Been lurking here for a while, but would like to say a big thanks to everyone who has contributed/helped with this as I wouldn't got so interested in it otherwise Just thought i'd share my IDA database that I've been working on for the past couple of weeks (pretty new to all of this) in case it can be of use to anyone (based on custom/wiki 607 rev 5b). It isn't the best but has the upper/lower bank disassembled/segmented and sorted (mostly) so that the disassembly makes sense (as well as sorting alot of the duplicated upper/lower bank funcs) (upper bank stuff mostly has _UB suffix). Also using the DAMOS and some other sources traced and labelled most of the ROM (v_ prefix) vars (mostly lower bank for now, will duplicate to upper bank later), RAM (r_ prefix), XRAM (xr_ prefix) and SCL (scl_ prefix) addresses. For the disassembly constants I linked them to the applicable CODE/ROM, XRAM or SCL segment for ease of disassembly/cross referencing (using virtual segments for XRAM and SCL offsets). The function naming is mostly vague and poor but can give a rough idea to some of the disassembly (although some may be incorrect based on earlier guesses before I started looking at the functions properly). As it's based on the custom/wiki rev 5b I've also labelled the custom functions/vars that are part of that too (mostly labelled with CUSTOM_ prefix). As I say alot of it has been compiled from multiple sources/references scoured from pretty much everywhere so lost track of who and what, but not claiming as mine - just couldn't keep track of everything.

    The car should maintain 3 bar for at least 20 minutes after engine shut off. The one way check valve in your fuel pump has failed.

    hahaha. Was parked there for 5 minutes. 1. Brother got in a t-bone accident years ago (which is what I think gave the car most of it's issues) 2 lady backed into it at the tire shop (paid for a new R bumper) 3 sideswiped on the street outside my brothers house (ran) 4 sideswiped on the street outside my parents house (ran) 5. Hit my neighbors car so hard that it hit mine and sent it 20 feet down the street (ran) You would think I would have learned my lesson parking it on the street but sometimes I couldn't help it. Worst part is I don't live in the city.

    Ran out of primer. The driver side and roof still need a couple more coats. But, after some trial and error using an HVLP gun, I eventually got the hang of it and am overall happy with the results so far.

    Installed the C30 AWD rear Posi - carrier bearings 32008X/Q x2 about an hour or so to get the mating surfaces free of anaerobic sealant remains preload shim on right side, left side gets the backlash adjuster right side cup & preload shim going in diff in, cover sealed with anaerobic sealant, torqued to 18ft/lb new axle seals 8653928 x2 preload set (5.25 turns), then used old seal to install new seals Had to drill & tap the remains of the rear CV, it was jammed in the pinion flange Next I can remove the flange, and replace the Haldex filter & rebuild the pump.

    As the title states. Found this pinned to a cork board on my filing cabinet. No photos, but obviously unused and in good condition.

    It's really cool. She has been waiting to get an XC90 in June for a few years, but was unsure with three kids and looking at other brands that offered the second row captain seats. Volvo announced they were doing it and she was so excited. If I moved on the from the wagon, I would be looking for the same XC90 you are. Anyways. Back on topic. I still have the e30. It's stripped down for the winter - patching rust holes, reinstalling and refreshing the whole AC system, rebuilding the rear subframe, all new brake lines, calipers, rotors, and pads, sound deadening the interior, wheel bearings, etc. When Katerhine gets her XC90 in June, I'll be adding another fun car to the garage (not quite sure what yet).
