    Default Introducing: The Least Stanced Car on Stanceworks!

    Hey everybody, I have been lurking on this sight for over a year now and I have finally decided to man up and show my car even though it's about as stanced as a jeep. I'm going to be cutting some springs to bring it down next weekend but the ultimate goal is a legit set a coils. Anywho, on with the pics!

    when I picked it up, a two owner 1976 Volvo 245 with a rebuilt motor/trans and a fairly new paintjob.







    and my favorite part of the car, the absolutely MINT interior





    Decided to make the most out of the wheels and tires I had, so I picked up a few chrome pieces and polished them up.




    I also sanded off the lettering on the inside edge of the tires for what I had planned




    Then I had the steelies powdercoated



    All back together!


    Then I moved on to the most time consuming part...painting my own whitewalls! I used Kilz white primer and it has worked great so far! I've had to repaint it once, but definitely worth it.




    one down!


    and all done!


    and back on the car








    So this is where she sits until I get the springs cut while I wait for the coilovers. I hope you guys enjoy!

    Very good start. Can't wait to see it slammed as is! I love seeing 70's/80's cars with mint interiors.

    Yea the interior is soo plush, I'm hoping it will help with the bumpiness of the cut springs!

    yea I'm so stoked with how well the whitewalls turned out. The winter definitely took a toll on them but it's nothing a fresh coat of paint and a couple hours labor can't fix! Better than spending $900 on real whitewalls!

    I thought about portawalls but I've heard the 3" ones don't hold up well and tend to tear

    Awesome. I love seeing pre-1980 200s, they seem to be coming out of the woodwork lately.

    Makes me miss the red/black two tone interior in my '79 242.

    When you cut your springs, start with 2.5 coils on the front and 2 in the rear, I think you'll like where it sits. Here's a shit-poor pic of a pic of my '79 when it was 2 coils down on both ends:



    And my buddy's turbo 245 down 3 coils all around:



    Just for some Volvo inspiration, from the Clockwork Calibrations Volvo gang here in Albuquerque.

    Awesome, thanks for the advice, that's exactly what I was thinking, doing 2 all around and seeing where I'm at
