Superb Aymat! I rather fancy the black Mk2 though :D

Re: VOC/V3M at Beaulieu - 6th (and 5th) October 2019

A good day indeed, lucky to have the decent weather too - had a great drive back via the New Forest. Hopefully you'll get the red car back soon :)

I will try to get to the Sun part of this with the red 3-door (ex-colin340).
Excellent, will be good to see the red car after all the work you've put in. I will be in my GLT as the GLS is still gearbox-less! :roll:

Re: Leather seats set

They are from an S40/V50 by the look of it, not a 300 series

Re: New 360 owner - SW Scotland

That looks superb! Good suggestion on the foot trays, they keep the carpets nice and clean and fit nicely. It'd look pretty sweet on some Leo's if you happen to find some

Re: New 360 owner - SW Scotland

Sounds good! I have a similarly aged GLT too and considering putting the original wheels back on, simply as you don't see many like that anymore :) The gasket kit comes with decent instructions, I'd personally use a bit of blue hylomar with the kit too for belts and braces. I had a 360 15 years ago ...

Re: New 360 owner - SW Scotland

I believe this will be the car you're referring to? http://www.volvo300mania.com/uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=16143 Looks great if it's still in that condition! Well worthy of a little project. You can still buy genuine cambelts so I'd recommend doing that, they're only about £10-12. pettaw1 on YouT...

Re: New 360 owner - SW Scotland

That car was for sale here a few years back, it looked very nice - so best of luck with it! I'd try and keep the mods sympathetic, the 3 doors are very rare. How about some earlier style 'Leo' GLT wheels? Same tyre size that way and a nicer design! The injection cars are quite lumpy from cold start,...

Re: 1981 Green 345 in Ely

Yeah that does seem a bit inconsistent, it'd certainly make sense for them to be blanked off on manual cars but we had two manual '81 MY 345 GL's at the same time, one was blanked and the other had the cutouts sm25

Re: New to V3M but not to Volvo's

Hi Tracey, hope you managed to find one - I spoke to you on the Volvo Owners Club forum. Did you ever get a chance to look at the brown one on Facebook?

Re: '85 360 GLS

For anyone still following my glacial progress on this.... I've removed the old tank and prepped a spare tank ready to go back in, just waiting on a couple of deliveries of fuel hoses and a diff gasket kit from Mac. Thought it prudent to replace the diff gasket, bolts, oil and gearbox oil while the ...
