    Default volvo s70

    Hello everyone, im Daniel from Georgia. Ive had my s70 for going on 2 years now, feels like I have made enough progress to start a build thread.


    first thing i did after buying it was black housing the headlights and adding purple ccf halos




















    and lastly how it sits today, thanks for looking!

    Havent updated in over 2 years! Sadly not much has changed though.


    Loved the look of projectors inside fluted lenses, so i pulled some projectors out of a caddilac.
    Shortly after that i decided to replace my broken and clicking axles.


    After that i got bored with painting my wheels and decided to full polish them. Would have been alot easier if I had a secord set to put on the car while i was polishing these.





    At this point i was still missing a center cap though, and just starting to repair my bat rolled fenders

    considered these for a second, but ended up buying the style 19s from my bro.



    decided my tails were to bright so i tinted them darker with the metalcast paint.


    deleted my mufflers and added some giant tips


    They ended up being to close to the bumper and melted it, so they didnt last that long.

    Wrapped the fuel rail cover in woodgrain, and started painting my engine bay black.



    My old knob was starting to look worn and faded and the button stopped working. so i found a cleaner woodgrain one at the junkyard, got it for free.


    Got bored with the polished and repainted my wheels gunmetal, bought new springs, sleeves and struts to make diy coilovers as seen here --------> http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum/topic...diy-coilovers/
    and managed to get it about half and inch lower, in the front.


    In the back i just chopped another coil off.

    Couple months after that I went to a meet and saw a car with pink projector lenses. I figured yellow would be a better fit. So using the rest of my stained glass paint i tinted the lenses. Couple weeks later i got tired of my sagging bumper, im still a long ways off from being able to afford the R bumper so i bought the bumper quick releases and color matched them.










    After that i bought the subaru s204 front lip and colormatched it. Finished up the fenders and painted them. It still looked pretty bad but it was much better than before. Got tired of the yellow stripped it off and picked up some 5k bulbs. By now it was getting close to Import Alliance spring meet. So i headed to the junkyard to pick up a few missing parts.

    Nope i used the metalcast on my taillights. Its transparent, but if you keep adding coats itll tint the tailight darker red.

    For the projectors and highbeams i used Krylon Stained Glass paint.

    Getting closer to import alliance i decided to remove the yellow from my high beams, and paint the corner lights amber. I also picked up a rotary buffer to try my hand at paint correction.





    For the corners i painted about 7 coats with tamiya transparent orange found in hobby shops, than cleared with krylon. Than it was wet sanded with 1000,1500,2000,and 2500 grit to remove the orange peel. Than buffed with ultimate compound, and polishing compound. I didnt take a pic when i finished though.

    I used to have an silver S70, it's cool to see someone doing one up. I loved those big exhaust tips on it! So out of character for a Volvo!

    Damn i suck at updating lol. sooo heres some pics from ia 2014. it was pretty epic, found some nice places to take pics on the way back.








    on the way home from work one day i managed to hit a box on the highway and ripped my lip off. along with part of my bumper


    after that i got tired of my flowmaster rattling and decided to chop it off and finally get some twin tips.




    Decided it was time to change up the wheel color again. thought brown would look good so i rocked that for a bit.





    Found more woodgrain at the junkyard, so finish up my interior.




    along with more random broken or missing pieces that fell off my car.



    got my thermometer to work again!
    Not sure why i thought i was a good idea but i drove offroad a bit to take sum pics. managed to rip off my fuel line. patched it up for a bit until i got a replacement.


    Both my upper strut mounts called it quits. so in came replacements.


    got tired of looking at my dirty trunk floor. picked up some cheap wood flooring for a new trunk.
