    How Your Car Sits

    LOL. Actually I think my house was renovated in the mid-80s by someone who had absolutely zero perception of right angles. But I wish that was my biggest problem with the driveway; its proximity to neighbor's dead trees and the fact that it is occasionally below sea level are much larger problems. We've been shopping for a new one for a while, but finding an acceptable driveway in our price range that also comes with an acceptable house and preferably a garage has proven to be quite a challenge when working with a real estate market where a huge portion of the housing was built before garages were really a thing.
  2. need a bunch of these for a project, preferably with pigtail to the main switch harness but can wire straight to the relay if I have to. lmk what you got

    late to the color party because the T-5R and T5 SE were in off site storage till today....but red, yellow AND frost green wins (you can just catch a peek of the red hood in the building where much magic is currently happening)

    Andy's 2000 V70 R

    Yeah I think that is a Steve question At least you are starting with a MY00 which already has a more powerful EMS than MY99.

    Good point. Can you control the intake VVT on ME7?

    I'd throw it in and then work on the head from the other engine

    Yeah, that's what happens when you put a ECE lens on a DOT reflector........you have to swap the glass AND the reflector. Cheaper to just buy a whole Depo ECE housing at that point.
  9. Bought a manual T-5R shift knob and boot. It even came with free parts car

    Traded in all the Volvos for a boat! Have a 609 hood that has been flooded with salt water left over if anyone is interested lol. And some S70 heated rear seats (those didn't get flooded).
  11. Bought a beater banjo so I don't have to take my Gibson everywhere anymore. This Zephyr Surplus place on ebay has some killer deals on factory reject instruments right now if anyone's shopping and doesn't mind spending a couple hours setting it up. And then I completely disassembled it LOL. Was absolutely unplayable out of the box.....not enough neck angle, the action was hopelessly high. Luckily banjos are super easy to deal with so I added this shim and was up and running in a half hour.

    Tuner4life's 1998 Saffron V70R

    Rubbing alcohol also fixes this. Works great on everything but the window switches since the grey color on the buttons is also dissolved by the alcohol unlike the dash switches.
