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?

Looks great! Where did you get it from? The replacements are often plastic nowadays :(

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 ...

Re: Why does nobody report spam messages?

We're sort of fire fighting at the moment, as ultimately the forum software requires an upgrade to protect against a new exploit that these bots are taking advantage of. Aymat is a busy chap with a young family but he's said he should be able to get this done within the next week.

Re: 360 turbo saloon tidy up

Looking good Tony! Surprised you didn't feel much difference with a cam swap, the 'T' cam felt as flat as a pancake above 5000rpm in a 940 I once owned.

Great work on the brake conversion, they're a much more appropriate size for the amount of power you're running now!

Re: Duchess The Volvo 340 CVT

Not so sure on the chrome gutter trim when the rest of the car has black trim but it's looking good. I reckon it needs some 360 style thicker side trims to match up with the bumper inserts.

Re: Volvo 360 GLT Roof Gutter Trims

Try posting on the 300 Mania Facebook group - thankfully the GLT trims are also the same as some of the later 340/360 trims which were also black so someone should have some on a car they're breaking. If you have to remove some go very slowly and heat them up first to soften the adhesive as they go ...

I've posted a link to this on the 300 Mania Facebook page, hope you don't mind - it'd be a shame for it to get scrapped!

Re: Volvo 360 GLT from Portugal

It should certainly be high compression B19E... should go quite nicely! The wheels could well be original equipment in Portugal at that time as it seems some early GLT's didn't get Leo's. When I looked a bit more closely this actually has the 14" steel wheels, like this press photo: http://motorbase...

Re: Volvo 360 GLT from Portugal

Sounds like it's worth fixing up!

The stickers on the bootlid/trunk door are original - it should also have a rubberised rear spoiler, looks like it still has this in the picture :)

Re: Volvo 360 GLT from Portugal

Could be a market thing? That's a very early GLT, looks great!
