Re: erm ok then

I just noticed, it even has an original Volvo radio fitted - only LW/MW unfortunately!

Re: erm ok then

Well, he's being very honest about the condition of the car! The original bodykit is so rare, that I'm sure the lot will sell eventually. But probably not for 600 pounds ;-)

Re: Volvo 340 GL - 1983 from Portugal

Good find! That looks very much like the spot lamp Volvo sold as an original accessory for the 300-series. It may even be the same?

Re: '82 343 DLS: beyond the arctic circle

It's very lucky for me that you don't! It means you can't do a fact-check :-) @Mark: thanks :-) The first scenes (after the elk) were filmed close by, on the outskirts of Bonn, the rest about 20-30 miles away in the "Ahr valley" area, well-known in Germany for its red wine. Not quite my cup of tea, ...

Re: '82 343 DLS filming

Oh I hope that you can get a video link of the program when it airs, I'd love to see it. It went on air this week, but you need patience due to the advertising. And it's all in German ...

Re: Wiring diagram for genuine Volvo spotlamps?

One switch for both spot lamps? In the above setup yes. I now have these fitted to my green GLT. There I have them wired to the full beam "flasher", so I no longer have a seperate switch. http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc152/trabitom99/Reisen/2016-09%20Ardennen/2016-09%20Ardennen%20059_zpsxrqaja...

Re: Genuine, rare, centre console panel and gauges.

Do any of you guys know which part number I need to look out for? Mac's post from 2006 sounds helpful as usual: VDO 323-801-012-003D for the 360 sump plug thread M18x1.5 http://www.volvo300mania.com/uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3436&start=15 I think I'll give that a try ...

Re: '82 343 DLS: beyond the arctic circle

The briefest of updates: changed the points again after the trip, and had the MOT done. No advisories except a bad earth on one of the rear bulb connections ...

Autumn and winter are coming, so the car will be getting a bit of rest from now on.
