    Suprisingly, its in pretty good condition. A tiny tear in the clotch on the backside of the seat and one light cigarette burn on the left side.
    The color is... Intresting to say the least. It will probably take some getting used to but I think it will look fine. Most importantly, the seat has very fine rif fabric, almost identical to what is on my oem seats. Just the color is a bit off.

    Now I need to find another one

    Definitely went MIA for a hot second there.

    Engine build has been organized, pulled the trigger, dropping the car off on the 5th of August.
    911 finally going to start.

    Fresh engines are always nice! Looking forward to see some progress on the 911

    Meanwhile I have been wrenching away on some non-volvo project. The weather has been (mostly) very suitable for 2 wheeled driving so I did a full engine rebuild, repainted the panelwork and gave the frame/suspension a much needed once over.
    Still a few bits to do but I can focus on the volvo again

    Welp, turns out everyone I work with at this dealership is an anti-vaxxer/Trumper/Q-Anon sort, and I'm the furthest thing from that. I fucking h4te slow days there cause ALL they ever want to talk about is right wing politics.

    And we've been hilariously slow. Like we've sold 1 bike this entire week, at a shop that's supposed to be selling 40+ a month. Good thing I didn't let go of my physical therapist assistant credentials, cause I might have to jump ship if this summer remains at this pace. Fuckin A.

    Damn dude that sucks. I have a few colleagues like that (they're even trump supporters. We're not even american ) but luckly the mayority is pretty normal thankfully.
    Hope for you the pace picks up some bit for you man!

    Why does it seem like the job markets are either hotter than the sun or absolute dog shit lately.

    I'm starting to put feelers out for a new position, too. Not sure what the future holds for my current spot but I'm not gonna sit on my hands and find out if things keep going this way.

    Yeah it's just super uneven right now. And of course 2 hours after I said yes to working at the dealership, one of the outpatient physical therapy clinics I work at told me that they'd hire me...

    And now the e46 needs both catalytic converters replaced. 2700 bucks in parts and labor. I think it's time to let this piece of shit go to carmax.

    I have the same with my GS300. Shes passes the emissions tests tho. So I might just put in some of these fake cat-converter pieces in front of the lower lambda sensors. If shes passes emissions and the check engine light is of, im happy

    Yeah this would never pass emissions here, unfortunately. So, now I'm trying to find something that I'd want to replace it with.

    Left Indian Motorcycle. Just not a place I wanted to work. Plus the 40 mile one way commute sucked.

    I start in the parts department of Ducati Newport Beach tomorrow.

    Yesterday I've tried my RF's on the volvo. Front sits great. The rear will see some action with the angle grinder and may need a smaller tire. Ill update my build thread when they fit.

    This place has been slower than a non-VTEC Honda running on 3 cylinders this month. The joys/frustrations of summer.

    Hope all y'all are having a decent time. The days are already starting to feel shorter here.

    Working 6 days a week all of July and doing the same in August. Mondays as a physical therapist assistant, Tuesday to Saturday at Ducati. I’m at an entry level position now so the pay cut was MASSIVE compared to my old career, but I like everyone I work with and I’m hoping I can move up eventually.

    Oh and I broke my apartment lease early in Long Beach. Moving in with my girlfriend to north Huntington Beach.

    Put in my 2 weeks notice last Wednesday. Found a new gig with an offer I would be full smooth-brain to refuse.

    Now I have a week left and I'm just biding my time.

    Welp, I just got f-ing lucky.
    Met a guy at some car event a little while back. Added him on facebook and scrolled quickly trough his pictures looking what cars he has had.
    Seccond picture, him sitting in a tan recaro seat. Beat to hell, stained and being used as a seat during wrenching.

    So I ask him, its a right seat (mine is left). Ask him if hes selling.

    I now have a full set recaro seats and I'm not even 100 euros in. The right seat is beat as hell but they were so cheap that I dicided to have the seats and rear bench reupholster. Now to find the right color/fabric to fit with my car.

    Volvo has passed inspection on the turbo engine. Now I can add the "less legal" stuff... Time for some sweet exhaust notes
