[AgA] Volvo 340GL - Possible Project

Post by Aga » 22 Aug 2017 03:34 pm

Long time needed, here's the timeline of my volvo...

Bought it a few months ago, full stock 340 1.4, 2 owners and 104Kkm
electric windows in front, and that's about it..

i've done a general maintenence, oil, plugs, belt, filters, after that a new set of firestone tyres on standard size (175/70R13), recharge the shocks and lowred it 35mm, and mounted a set of Wolfrace Slot Mags on 6J13 ET15
now it looks like this..

now i'm coming to the point of deciding what to do with it..

thinking of more power, but not too mutch..
have a deal on a 1.7 from a renault 21 or a 1,8 16v of a Renault 19 16S


regards, Ricardo!

The headlight is probably a bad earth, check all the earth points.
The indercator not turning off off will be the white bit that pokes out of the stalk of the steering wheel.

That's looking good now. The wheels look good, are they 13 inch? I've got some but not on a car yet! I was wondering what they looked like.

well a B18FT, think is a nice upgrade on my 340.
it was already mounted on a 360 hatchback, but stoped rolling in 5 years, and for 3 years it sited on the boot of the car with the rear window broken.. so it needs a lot of cleaning, painting etc..

i'm going to do this slowly, the goal is to be running by the end of next year...
