Blueline with Bodykit Valance!!!!

Post by 340GLT » 01 Aug 2005 12:46 am

Well guys i picked this valance up today from dave!! And i must thank everyone who helped to make these repros happen!! They are awesome!! And anyone who has one who hasnt seen it in the flesh yet will NOT be disappointed!!!
I wanted to know what they looked like in the flesh and so i tried it on the blueline, as it wouldnt fit over my double GLT front spoiler!!! sm14
Anyways sorry for the poor pics my dad has gone on holiday and taken his camera with him!!! So i used my phone!!
Cheers Adam

Just to irritate you Jeroen...(and this happened long before you mentioned it, so sadly it's not intentional :P)....the rear valance is the only piece of the kit that Dave doesn't have to mould. I guess I really ought to dig one of my TWO out and deliver it to him... :mrgreen:

Ohh when you get the spoiler back foggy, just sit the front valance under the rear bumper!!!
With a bit of work it would look awesome!!!
And have room for twin tail pies aswell!!!!
Lol

No Problem. The faster they are made the faster I have one... If I want one... Is there a front valance left?
Using a front valance on the rear will require twin exhausts but it will hide the bottom of the car nicely.
I think I like that better than the original one...

Hmmm... Just thought of something... what to do with the number plate area...?

On the front? there is a mounting on the valance.

The original buy has been accounted for, but contact Dave via www.volvorsport.co.uk and I'm sure he'll stick another in the mold....once this buy is finished :P

I know what to do with it on the front, I have one... :mrgreen:
I was wondering what to do with the numberplate area when I use one for the back... maybe some diffusor-ish thingie...

put the numberplate on it.


then, put a red reflector instead of the current one. (you know, like the one Fred has)

I was thinking of that aswell.
That reflector makes me drewl... sm71
Rerouting the numberplate lights is not to big a big job... But finding that reflector... sm38
