finaly had some time to mess with the "van".

Started with driver seat attachments. Newer style seat runners are narrower than the old ones. Took the seat out, measured things and figured out what I need.

next some metal and measuring and drilling.

Cut the pieces out and cut a line in for the ones that needed some bending.

Then bend these things tach it in place, then weld it over and grind it down.

I'll paint these things some time, for now need to figure out this thing.

Well. Did it all other way. Bypassed stop logic and but ground and load on the switches directly as the switch can carry load. They are all constant load and the ground is changed. 

Non memory seat

with memory seat, also needed to add load wire

Going to test it out tomorow.

Summer wheels on.

 

Well the 2008 seats are higher than 1987 seats. If I fit them in I can't fit in the car any more. Need to mod the seat rails or the metal on the floor pan. It looks like Volvo added extra strengthening under the seats for side impact protection. New seats have the SIPS strengthening bars in the seat.

Well, started with the side panel work. They need to be refitted maby I'll replace them with plexyclass. Who knows.

First the "Zomby tubbies" went away.

large_29784675_PaTw.jpg

 

And a friends wife offered me her BMW E46 320D for cheap (600.- EUR). Ran bad and uunstable, no power, hesitation and high fuel consumption.

First off went with the intake to clean it out.

large_29784679_obNa.jpg

 

Found cracked and splitt vacume lines to the turbo and fixed these.

large_29784681_RCjV.jpg

 

Now runs like it should :D

large_29784677_4Dnw.jpg

There are a lot of small problems with it. Some rust rear window wiper is busted, front nose plastics are non existant and so on. But with that price I can work with. Usualy these things go for 2000.- EUR in here.

In the start of next event. A short one 110km drive (3,5 hours).

large_29787165_PsOm.jpg

 

Having problems with front brakes. They rattle and make grinding noise. Volvo used Girling front brakes on this model - it has guide pins that have worn out the holes in caliber mounting braket. So they move and rattle around.

Now I have formulated a plan on what to do with this things bag paint - it is repaint time.

 

Standard deep gloss black paint. And tested a red matt decal stripe on a car.

large_29789123_wzdA.jpg

 

Turned out so ยด80s :D

 

The painting will need to wait until winter. As it is hobbycar season, need the car for different events.
