Time for ceramic coating 👍🏼 I’d love to see this in person with a good buff/polish and coat.

Thanks! I’ve actually been looking into ceramic coating, the results seem really impressive. Has anyone on here used ceramic coating on their car?

I used blackfire wax brand and it put an incredible depth to my paint and has served excellent protection. It’s been on two years and I will redo it this year, not sure which brand I will go with this time. All though the pearl is less noticeable now.

That’s great feedback, thanks!

sweet!!

Thanks!!

In less than great news, one of my neighbors hit my rear bumper when he was parallel parking last night

Hes gonna pay to fix it so I’m not mad. Plus, it kinda needed fresh paint anyways. My car will slowly get all new paint, 1 accident at a time 🤦‍♂️

In slightly more exciting news, stopped by Semir’s ( @ds50r) shop to get my AC charged up and it feels so nice to have my air working again!

Faaaawwccckkk!!?  :wacko:

Just tell the body shop you want a new bumper cover.  By the time they repair the scratches, prime, paint, clearcoat, etc.; it's about the same price as new from dealer.  At least that's what my body shop told me when this happened to my prior wagon.

P.S. take that sticker off the back of your car that says, "HIT ME!"  :a-farmboy:

Or does it say, "MAKE MY DAY.."  :happy:

Unfortunately the AWD bumper is only available in blue at the point so even a new bumper would need prep and paint.  

I’ll make sure to get that sticker removed ASAP!!

I spent some time over the weekend getting my STI BBS refinished before mounting up some new 225/45/17 Pilot Super Sports and installing everything on my wagon. 

The damage to this wheel from when I got hit last September is what prompted the refinish effort:

Sand the rough parts down, fill with JB Weld, sand some more and it’s ready for primer:

Then spray a few coats of primer:

Next, a couple coats Duplicolor Wheel Coating and several coats of clear:

Install new valve stems, mount the PSS, balance and they’re ready to go on the car:

And the end result:

Correct, they’re 5x114.3 so I’m running adapters to bolt them up.

Great looking VR. Hopefully my 2000 VR will be to this point in the future. Sorry if you covered this already but what axles did you use with the M66C? I'm assuming the 99 4 speed axles since you went with the 99 angle gear?

      Hi im new to this forum and this is my first post.
      i have a V70r 1999 
      there seems to be difficult to find a gearbox replacement 1208943. Reason for replacement is the gears are slipping when the atf is hot. I want to rebuild it but instead of taking down the one on the car I’m looking for one used I can rebuild and swap with the one on the car.
      my questions is: can i use other gearboxes F.ex 1208942 from xc70? 
      Does anybody here know What might be wrong with the one i have? No DTCs!
      Does anybody have A 1208943 they might wanna sell? Or maybe 8111193..
      other things I can do except flush as I just did that? 12l jws3309+treatments+leakstop
      where is the Volvo race mechanics ? 😅

      A slightly neglected but making a comeback, 70R that is just itching to find a motivated owner. Nearly every month, we all read, or hear about, another R selling for CRAZY money. This particular R is NOT crazy money. It's reasonable money. $4000.00 and who knows, it may be even cheaper. What I would REALLY be interested in, is a TRADE. STRAIGHT ACROSS. CAR FOR CAR. 
       
      MINE; 2005 VOLVO V70R ONE OF 674
      190,000. Mostly fwy commute miles silver paint with the typical Gobi colored leather. Yes, it would be nice if it were flash green with Atacama but it's not. Clean title, never been involved in any significant accidents. NO panel has been repainted. Has a few of the typical umps and bruises but nothing big. Interior is Gobi leather and is a little tired. CaR starts easily, idles nicely, revs like a pissed off banshee,  has a working 4C system, all three settings, NO CHECK ENGINE LITE, NO codes other than ignition ring and rear wiper motor. 
      Automatic trans with a new, Quality replacement, valve body including all eight shift solenoids. New, not ebay Chinese "reman" solenoids as well as all new proper transmission fluid. I have set adaptation thru VIDA only to find out that the VIN LOCKED TCU is probably "bricked" and needs a XEMODEX replacement.  APPROXIMATELY  $499.95  I just don't want to deal with it as I have other cars and projects in various stages of completion and have no room. 
      If I were to keep it, I would absolutely do an M66 Install as this conversion alone seems to make people go mad and throw huge amounts of cash at owners. 
      If I had the room I'd strip it bare and make it a 6 speed track only car with full cage etc.
      Yours; 95-97 855R  prefer red but any R color would work. Needs to be in reasonably decent condition. NO SALVAGED TITLE. Must run. NO more than 2 years out for tags. I understand how old they are and how crappie the interior plastic is now so I won't freak about a cracked or broken interior. PLEASE,  NO TOTAL POS CARS BUT SOME ISSUES ARE EXPECTED 
      Interested? Let me know what you're thinking and maybe we can make something happen
