    1998 V70R, Resto Mod Thread

    I am active on SwedeSpeed, but I heard this forum is more receptive of modifying cars. Build Thread I bought the car about 5 years ago with 110k miles on it. My ex took the car and daily-ed it for about 2 years and I bought it back recently. Car was neglected and riven hard in those 2 years, so I have been tearing down much of the car for R&R. Quick catch up then current work being done: Completed Shaved and painted bumpers Modified CX Racing Coilovers (for an S70) Drop bolts, Swift Springs for the rear, custom bottom T-Bar mount Full Maintenance (PCV, Timing Belt, Plugs/ Wires, etc) Colorado Driveshaft Rebuilt ABS Module 18" BBS Wheels from a Jaguar - completely restored (running custom adapters) Just fitted a period correct Momo Cobra steering wheel. Imported from Russia with love. Used an OMP adapter for a P2. Untitled by britt edward, on Flickr Currently Rebuilding the front and rear wheel hubs. Front were simple, rears not so much. The bearing retainer clips for the rear were seized and required some work to remove.

The key is loosen with a pick, then use PB Blast. Dont try to pull it out without using the PB Blast. It will just break apart (I learned) Untitled by britt edward, on Flickr Untitled by britt edward, on Flickr Untitled by britt edward, on Flickr

    Hit 2 major-ish snafus. Found out my front "Big Red" caliper are the wrong models. The part number showed correct in a couple of resources and they bolt up to the adapters perfectly. However, they do not fit over 32mm rotor. These are meant for a 28mm rotor. I couldnt find a Volvo 330x28 rotor, so im going to use a set of 320x28 for now. Porsche Caliper PN: 996.351.426 IMG_2437 by britt edward, on Flickr Second issue is a separated rear inner CV joint. I was putting it into the new hub/ bearing and I think it popped loose. I wanted to replace them anyway, but was hoping to wait a couple weeks. Replacement Axle should be here Wed/ thurs. Rear Untitled by britt edward, on Flickr

    Thank you. Your P80 has been an inspiration. Im on the lookout for a clean XC bumper. Looks so good on yours. Manual conversion is definitely happening. Hopefully sooner rather than later. Rear 330mm setup is massive compared to the old. Can wait to bed them and then try them out. Untitled by britt edward, on Flickr

    So many parts to put back in. Hoping to get it done by this weekend so I can drive it for a week before making the trip to Carlisle. Pulled new Parking Brake Lines. The other came out in pieces.

    Just the 2 main pipe from this package. I think it was about $300 shipped. https://www.jetex.co.uk/performance-exhausts/Volvo/V70-(P80)-Turbo-4WD-(96-00)/

    Thanks. I ordered. Now I need to figure out a solution for the rear camber. Have you seen anything? Im thinking of finding an adjustable camber bushing that will fit in the lower rear control arm on the differential side.

    The hub adapter kit came with a jumper that has a fuse in it, but I haven't tried it yet.

    Love your car! Super clean. I have run Jetex on a couple of Audi/ VW cars and love the sound - refined lower rumble. However, I wanted something that sounds a little "throatier" on this build. So I am using the Jetex pipes for convenience and will run dual Magnaflow resonators. Jetex will ship directly to the US and it is cheaper to order direct than go through a US broker. The rear trim for the V70 is part# 9483520 I paid $30 for it on sale, but the price is back up now. https://www.eeuroparts.com/Parts/56760/Lower-Trim-Molding-9483520/

    Thanks. the D2 is going through an Identity crisis as I figure out the body work. It's stripped to bare aluminum, which I am oxidizing with a chemical, then sanding to give a faux finish. the interior is mostly stripped and cage is being made for it. Soon to be a show/ track car.
