Re: Brake Upgrades

Rx7 4 pot calipers can be used, with golf g60 vented brake discs. A bracket needs to be made up to mount the caliper, and the discs need to be re-drilled to be bolted to the back of the volvo hubs. Then you need to get some brake pipes with the correct ends on. This conversion needs at a minimum 15i...

Re: 360 bell housing south east?

i've just sold my complete 360 transmission to a guy called Tom Rose, if you find him on facebook, he might sell you the bell housing as i don't think he needs it.

Re: one wheel further back than otherside? (pics)

This is the mint green 340 saloon isn't it? Don't worry too much, its not the end of the world, it can be repaired, just things might have to get a bit drastic if you want it perfect. Stick a new compression strut and lower arm on and see what happens, with suspension the slightest things can have t...

Re: wheels sizes

13's area dead end. Look into 15's :) Been there done that, 13's make the mpg stupid, no top end, no ground clearance, no good sizes available, hard to find decent sets of wheels (i.e no banded steels or minilights), hard to have a set thats 'different' from the rest. My advice is go 15's, i've just...
