Hussein's 1998 V70 Xr : The Force Awakens

Recommended Posts

Worked on the fit of the IC support / header panel & spacing of the IC/AC Cond & RAD. I had added reinforcements to the header panel to stop in flexing with the bottom cut out, but that created interference issues with the rad & Cond, so tweaking was required.

cut more out of the bumper bar, it was pressing up against the IC

Good job, H! Keep up the great work. Your last picture there looks a bit like terminator. :)

Thinking about cutting more of the bumper cover away

May be overkill. Larger opening does not necessarily equate to better cooling. I do have an old XC cover that I can strip completely, cut out/mod the opening further, remove the headlamp wiper divots & run in flat black :arob:

I kinda dig it.

Agreed. But keep it body colored. I think it looks REALLY aggressive

Sounds like I should go forward with it.

I'm boxing out the remainder of the bar to reinforce it, so I'm adding a channel that will guide some air to a inlet in the front of the airbox
