Re: Seat cover removal and head-rest restoration

Hey, to get covers off, just work you way around removing the hog rings (get new ones) separate seat back from base.

Re: trimming down the spares collection,

Hey, I would be interested in the electric window motors, just the motors.

Re: New 340 owner

Hey folks... Just thought I'd say hello. Normally I'm a classic VW owner, but when a 340 came up for sale in our village my curiosity got the better of me! £100 later and I'm the proud owner of a LHD 83 1.4 DL CVT. 50k original miles, full service history, all the books etc. Put it through and MOT ...

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.

Are you going to leave the rub strips off? I used to definitely prefer it without them but I'm undecided now.
