Peacocks Wagon Build

Recommended Posts

So today became shave day. 

I may have gotten carried away with the lower fins and in the end smoothed it out a bit. That lower fin was 90* at one point (oopsie!)

"smooth" I promise I read through stuff and looked at picture before I started but it is was it is.

Easter Sunday Update,

Recieved the coupler from Amazon, It looks exactly like every other one out there and is probably made just as bad as the ones that cost $34-$59. $59 for this!!! Mine was 9.99

The only place I could find a plug was at Lowes, it is a 3/8-24 x 1/2 Socket head set screw. It threads about half way in and then stops. I wound it back out, then in and then out and got it tightly locked in there. The threads are cut really poorly. I also took a round file to the inside to knock down some left over metal from the threading process.

Is that for the rad hose mod required when using the P1 version M66 in a P80? I don't know the details on that...

Took a minute today to install the new detent and the reverse light switch/detent. 

Thought I was having trouble shifting at first and then I switch the cables on the shifter itself. Seems to work great, really slots into each gear and as AndyB5 has said to me it's hard to hit reverse when going to 6th.

Did you transfer the firewall grommet from the old cables? I couldn't get the C30 grommet to line up no way no how. Slit the sheath on one side & then siliconed the slot after proper cable alignment

 

WTF IS GOING ON ON THIS poking SITE. IMG TAGS DON"T WORK NOW?????

H try imgur.com you can sign up with a gmail account and have control over the images in a similar way to photobucket. 

No plans for the grommet yet. still has the s40 on there. I'll have to tape over it or something crappy for now and wait until there is a manual p80 at the yard and take the boot. Good suggestion though. The grommet isn't available as a separate piece so time to play the waiting game a bit. 


Really hoping the helper spring comes to tasca in time and I get it here by Wednesday. Ordered it on 3/4, they messed something up and had to re order it again.

Most time consuming single part was the AC compressor line and that's because we refused to take the fan out for 45minutes

Yup, our garage on RPI's campus. 

We had a 426 wagon party earlier:

      Here's the story behind my new-to-me 2000 V70 R. Its gonna be a long post, and picture heavy too!
      This thread will serve as a continuation of sorts of my 1999 V70 R build, which can be read here:
       
      The conclusion to that thread will come later this summer, as I will be pulling all the modifications of my 99 R, and transferring them to the 00 R.  Now, onto the details of my new Venetian Red 00 R!
      My friend sent me the for sale ad on Facebook:

      Here's a couple of the photos from the listing:


      After spending a few weeks negotiating with the seller, I bought a one way flight to Denver, packed some tools in my bag (I did, however, forgot to pack underwear ) and went to visit some friends before picking up a car and driving it 1900 miles across the country back to New York!!!
      I landed in Denver Friday evening (May 12) in the early evening.  While there, I got to check out the murals of the Denver Airport, and see all the other bits that are the basis for a long list of conspiracy theories.

      Here's how it sat when I picked it up from the seller at a shopping center a short walk from my friends apartment.

      Shortly after taking delivery of my R, I went on a hike in up Golden with my friends.  The views were stunning to say the least.


      After lots of fun touring around the Denver area on Saturday, I packed my stuff into the car and started driving back to NY on Sunday morning (May 14th) with plans to stop at my friend's place in Cedar Falls, Iowa.  Here are some photos from the drive Sunday.  Nebraska was wide open, flat, and very easy to drive through:


      Drove through miles of turbines in Iowa (despite the picture being of a singular turbine).  There's a Don Quixote joke here somewhere....

      Cruising towards Cedar Falls, Iowa and got to watch the sun set


      Sunday's drive was about 800 miles, which took about 12 hours, and the drive home was off to a great, relatively easy start.
      Here's how my car sat outside my buddy's place in Iowa on Monday morning

      When I left Iowa Monday morning, my destination was headed to Anthony's (@apeacock) house near Buffalo, NY.  Monday held about 850 miles of driving, which was about 13 hours of driving.
      Stopped for gas in PA.  I had a hard time with card reader on the pumps though....

      Made it to Anthony's around 10pm, took him for a quick test drive, and then face-planted into the extremely comfortable bed in his guest room.
      Monday morning before I left his house, Anthony took this photo of our wagons together

      Made good time on my way back to Troy on Tuesday morning - at this point, 300 miles seemed like a short drive to me   I got to enjoy some really nice views in the mountains in western NY:

      Here's how the odometer when I made it home:
       
      The entire trip was 1960 miles, and I managed an average of 26.8 mpg at an average speed of 70 mph.  All of this was calculated from the trip computer. 
      And here's how my two wagons sat when I got the office on Tuesday at noon:

      Earlier tonight I got it registered in NY, so now the build can begin.  Stay tuned, this should be a fun project and I'm very excited to get working on it

      T-5R Wagon (1995), black, automatic transmission, mostly original with a few moderate suspension upgrades. Approximately 175k, with careful and regular service. This was a California car for most of its life, and is (from best estimates) one of fewer than 100 still on the road in the U.S. It comes with: IPD 3" cat-back exhaust; 4 steelies with snow tires mounted; trailer hitch; original parts no longer installed; and your choice of body panels and parts from a 1995 black 850 NA wagon (parts car). I am a motivated seller and will take $3,000, for the next two weeks. Contact me and I'll answer all questions, to the best of my knowledge, and send any additional pictures that you may want. The car can be seen in Delaware, near I-95.

      SO
      Just made an account, hello all
      Tryna do some work on my '98 V70R, the timing belt is from 2006 I think, rear brakes are sitting at 10% (So sayeth the local mechanic).
      Gonna pick up the Power Stop Z23 Performance D/S Rotor and pad kit. Couldn't find any note in the service records of the rear calipers ever being replace, (and the first guy who had this car put nearly 18 grand into it) does it need to be done? 
      Also is this timing belt a problem? From what I've read, if it breaks, its a bad time :(
       
      Thanks all in advance. Pretty green to mechanic-ing
      Oh shitters, I posted it twice. Off to a bad start
