Either Sirius or Nova depending on whether or not they have the machined face. I forget which is which, but I'm sure Ken will be here soon enough....

Dig this car, and love those rims. Were those blasted and powdercoated? They have a mag texture.

Just give the hood some rustoleum satin finish. It's got that fighter plane look done up well.

Air dam coming off in the first pic is a classic example of Murphy's law of Volvo performance.

thank you

as far as the rims, they came (stock on aldens 740ti) and the only thing i did was wash and scrub them real well (a bunch of simple green, and a really stiff scrub brush)

yea, the hood is gonna get prepped and painted again at some-point (i just need another person around to help me remove and line it back up)

the airdamn popped off after i hit 3 cones in one of my autocross runs... but zip-ties ftw!

when you don't have mad hot performance, you might as well try and highlight some other positive aspect....

and, besides with the 243ish miles to marina, each way for me, i might as well try to keep the costs down...

at 25 mpg thats 60 bucks up there and back...
if i can get a constant 29mpg or more (compared to the 25mpg), that saves me 10 bucks round trip
and from getting 18mpg it saves me 20 bucks a trip

plus its a lot of fun to say my 25 year old car gets the same (or better mileage) then your 3 year old car... plus it sounds more like an angry tractor while doing so.

i got the braces for cheap... my white paint didnt stick too well...

ive got a set of 25 mill bars, the front is on, rear is waiting...

i wanna do a set of lower braces, and a strut tower to strut tower at sometime...

and ive got a set of ipd springs coming soon....


should be a fairly fun car when i get all my stuff together.


re : the hood

id like to get it paint matched at somepoint, but ive got to find somebody that wont charge me an arm and a leg ... its got bent corners too, so ive got to find somebody willing to deal with those...

ideally id like to find one thats the right color, and cut holes and use pins on this one...
