    Default vlavlo turbro.

    queso, i had this



    but it kind of sucked alot. it was semi sketchy and was semi beat. i sold it to some rich ass hole for 2500.

    then i got the same car just a year newer (84) from a close family friend for, one. whole. dollar. he wanted to repaint it before he "sold" it to me. so i took multiple trips down to california to do paint shit work. it was mostly lots of sanding. it sucked. pictures.





    then we primed it, and then wet sanded it.



    took everything apart. put it in the back.



    next to painting it, it needed to be smogged. but those fuckers tried so hard to fail it. it kept failing because they didnt like the way a hose on the intake was connected. so this happened.



    it passed.

    then i found some sweet rust on the floor.



    fixed it. didnt take pictures. i will soon.

    put in a new fog light switch.



    it makes this



    finally got it into paint, came out balling. there are a couple spots that could uses some wet sanding. maybe i will maybe i wont.



    on the way home from california it did this.



    best part about this car is this



    so clean
    also i was going to run the salad shooters again but a different color, so i started stripping them



    turns out i have the patience of a small bird, and i am cheap. so they currently sit behind my house just like this. im prolly selling them to a friend. and getting something much more balling.

    and since i got another grocery getter i probably need to get bags for my groceries.

    i agree. for what was paid, it exceeded my expectations of balling. also my grocery bags should be here by the end of the week. prepare your faces.

    lame update
    picked up the new wheels and started sanding, it sucks but im really excited about these wheels.



    also i did a little test fit on just the front (with the 20 mil adapter)
    take it with a grain of salt since its with a giant monster truck mudd runnin tire.



    also my bags showed up! it was pretty quick delivery which is awesome and i got right to work on installing them. i got tunnel vision and didnt take any pictures of the instal. but here is the finished product.



    i do more updates when wheels iz ready.

    Default and it begins.

    took it into the shop, took things off it, made a sweet hover wagon.



    then things were mocked up.



    after things were mocked. lines were drawred, then the cutting started.
    the volvo strut assembly is a little weird. the kanuckle is all one part of the strut housing so that was cut off, then welded to a sleeve and the air strut was welded into that sleeve.






    after that custom top mounts were made. i didnt take pictures because im sure you can all use your imaginations to create a brain picture of a 6 inch diameter disk with 3 studs poking out. then they got stuffed back into their homes. looks like dis



    and so far the only problem that has been encountered with the front is that the opening in the strut tower is a little to small. so it will need to be notched.



    and then some testing ensued.
    full droop



    full bump



    there are these super lame shields in the front wheel wells and they are getting in the way. so once i pull those out, put less monster tires on, more low should be achieved.

    when i left the shop the rear cups were in the staging..stages...but i had to go home (to the next town over) because i graduate high school tomorrow. hopefully i will be able to get back in on friday to do some more work on things.

    also this lame stuff showed up. so i started playing with it.



    and since this was just a mega tease here is a little something to help you all finish yourselves off.

    pupdate

    i went into the shop for a little today. it was rainy and cold and gay. not much happened.
    i did 3 things and took pictures of one. so,
    1. changed the tie rods because one got stripped and the other got the nut fused to it had to be cut. didnt take a picture
    2. cut the openings in the strut towers a little so that all that top bidness wood fit. didnt take a picture.
    3. mounted the manifold and ecu for elevel. took a picture.



    its in the extra well in the back on the left. i only took one picture because im a lazy teenager.

    hopefully my main man turry will be welding the rear cups on sunday or monday. then its up to me to run wires and air lines and mount sensors. its alot to do and its the largest project of this kind that i have ever taken on so im getting in the mind set to do it by listening to alot of metallica and korn. looking at being finished around tuesday or wednesday (most likely wednesday).

    might be able to go in tomorrow and dink around a little. it depends. we will see. who knows. maybe, maybe not. and if i do, maybe ill take more than one picture.

    KITTIES

    I've wanted to bag one of these for a while. Interesting build. The back should be cake the front came out easier then I would have imagined. For some one of your age your doing things very right keep that up!
    Build it for a purpose.

    thank you! i knew the front was going to be easy since in the process of selling my last one i replaced the front struts so i had gotten a pretty solid look at what was going on. also there was a guy on turbobricks who has bagged his 240 and i am using the same process he is. for me i had no idea how the back would work because its so weird! luckily sean lea (and the turbobricks guy) knew what was up. ive gotten very lucky with this whole project! and im really stoked on it so thanks for you kind encouragement
