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.

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.

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

Now runs like it should :D

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.

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.

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
