Volvoskiah (Brandon) picked it up at a local auction with the help of LongTom and Dillon and basically waited it out for me to come fly down and drive it back :lol: it is the single nicest 850 I have driven in my life. So amazing. The exterior needs some love in the form of paint and buffing/wax/polish but otherwise it is a great looking wagon. Front suspension goes on this Thursday ^_^

Failed at the simplest repair...AC accumulator. The HP hose from the compressor to the accumulator is frozen solid and I had to cut the accumulator can off.. :angry: I tried everything...the 7/8" boss on the can was totally rounded and the fitting is seized, and yes I even used pipe wrenches and breaker bars!..Anyone got a used hose they want to sell me?? ..no cars in the JYs here..my $30/15 min repair is growing...

Cam cover is leaking on the t5-r. Could be the " volvo style" sealant IPD sent me. Nevermind the fact i called and specifically asked for the oem sealant... Or the two stripped cam cover bolts. Spent all afternoon chasing threads and drilling, tapping, and helicoiling. Fun fun fun... Not

Buttoned everything up after the motor rebuild. Took it 4 blocks to my moms house to grab my shit out of her car that I've been using, parked, started walking to the house then heard a crunch. Turned around to see a Neon's rear bumper buried into my fender...... FML

Guy is a neighbor that's lived on the same street as my parents for years but never met. Getting an estimate on mon then deciding whether or not to report it dependant on price. Either way its just getting a fender off my parts car.

Buffed a few scratches out of the clear coat, vacuumed the interior, and otherwise got it ready to hand off to my younger brother after I move into my dorm tomorrow.
