Ollies N.I Volvo 340 - Project De-silver - Hillpower f7r

Post by Ollie » 18 Oct 2014 09:07 pm

A friend bought this car not too long ago but never got the time to do anything to it! I told him id call up for a nosy as id never looked round one before... Long story short i bought it...

Someone in the past had painted it silver... Everything... Mirrors, aerial, bumpers, spoiler, door handles, all trim! So i started by painting a few things black and getting it mot'd.

Really looking forward to swapping bumpers etc over! I was also going to weld a diff but i soon realised how well these things slide without one. It loves big wet roundabouts!!! :lol: :lol:

Good to see it being brought back from the brink, but not sure about this banded steel business.

Will you have some spare 5 door glass by any chance?

Hi mate.
Looks like Astrell Tweeks is alive and well. I timed the engine for Ashley
four years ago after some bugger ripped him of.
Cheers Mark.

Great to see an old friend again, looks well good on the minilites, & I always wanted some for it.
I probably wont win any prizes for my 1st attempt at re-spraying, but I did learn something.

I don't regret anything I've done in this car, it promised to be a fun car, and in fairness it did deliver a good helping of fun while in my ownership.
Thanks for posting these pics, I had a really long thread that was lost in the update.

Fair play for taking into it but another half hour removing bumpers and trim would have made it a far better job! The actual paint isnt that bad.

Also id love to see the old thread if an admin can resurrect it! :D :D




Anyway...

This happened lol Hopefully get it in over Christmas.

I've found the thread for him :wink: , so all he needs to do is make it visible again.
