Haha, and I thought I was slow :lol:

Wonder what we have to do about regarding the A/C as it runs on old school ozone destroying R12 I think.

Getting my NOS wing back Thursday just been painted by my mate so the car will hopefully be all back together this weekend.

Just need to service it and change the diff/gearbox oil.

I thought I would update this, the car is finished apart from a bad couple of cans from Halfords who randomly cocked up the last batch of colour match I bought. So now I'm waiting for money so I can afford to pay my mate to paint the rear arches properly. Not on the road as I can't afford to run two cars so it is tucked away safely in storage.

Also need to stick the rub strip and badges on the freshly painted O/S wing and my mate will redo the pinstripes too.

Looks like you win this race mate. Buuuttt i have a new engine to go in, bigger, better, stronger. So i'm not even close, as its still in the 760.

Looks good mate, grill doesnt suit it. Should send it to me, would really go well with my full bodykit.

Well I have finished the rebuild race, I have got to take it apart again to fit my B230ET eventually, only been sat in the garage for 4 years!

As for the grille... keep dreaming :lol:

If the grille on the 760 is an egg crate grille I will buy it for my 940.

Thanks Bog :)

Just realised I haven't fitted my team heko/Volvo wind deflectors yet.

Thanks Steve, although your GLS paint is immaculate compared to mine but then I have built the car to be used so I'm not too bothered about it.
