@Ghost Shadow @T5power or anyone else who may know I need your stereo wiring and xc90 wiring expertise.

I installed s60r faces and outer bezel in my 09 xc90. I need to find a wire or a way too hook up the leds in the top of the cluster so I can see my speed at night as well as dim them.

Corey I tagged you because didnt you do this in your s80?

Hey man! So sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. Work has been crazy busy. 

 

Yeah I put the S80 Executive Gauges in my XC90. I had to end up re-using some parts of the S80 cluster and cut off the lower tabs to make it work. I can't remember why but it was pretty simple to figure out. As for the LED's, I wired them into the bulbs in the headlight switch, so the LED's would come on with the parking lights. One of my favorite mods I've done was the Executive gauges.

Yeah I had to do the same with the s60R cluster into the XC90 with the cutting and stuff.

You just soldered to the wire on the bulb correct?

 

Hows everything BTW, since I dont have a Facebook I never get to BS with you anymore LOL... Hows Derek?

Anyone have the ability to run a carfax for me? I'd rather not pay $40 for one.

If you can't find someone, be careful when selecting options if you do go ahead and buy a report. I just bought a report the other day, and I didn't notice it defaults to three reports for $99, which I unwittingly purchased. Then I had to explain, wait for a partial refund, etc etc.

I already caught that. Sneaky of them.

Hey man! All good on my end.  Things are good on the homefront. Fixing up this house and stuff, actually I think this weekend I might be looking into a P3 T5 AWD S60 hopefully. I'd do the R Design but it's just a bit out of my budget. 

Derik is good, he's rolling with an 04 XC90 2.5T AWD right now, but the AWD is finnicky and I can't figure out the issue, but it's related to the yaw sensor. so irritating. Other than that he's good!  slaving away for corporate america lol

Whats up with the E36? 

i picked it up almost a year or so ago as a rebuild project, after replacing brakes/struts/shocks and cleaning it out with Q tips I'm looking to move on, Its a really fun car to drive but I just miss my volvo. It's got a few odds and ends to chase down and clean up but its been a solid backup for now. 

I just miss teh volvo
