Volvo 350R 2door saloon T5 UD 03/10/09

Post by 340GLT » 22 Jul 2008 07:03 pm

Well i have been fairly quiet on the forum recently and have not really done anything to my grey car, but i have had some spare time so felt i should share with you my new project, which i will update in this single thread.

Final product will be a 2 door saloon with a T5 engine. So i will make a new braking system to cope with the power etc. I want roughly 300BHP to start with from the T5 then once the car has been finished etc i will upgrade engine again.

So here are a few pics to show what i have been up to including my lovely new 330mm Mercedes Brembos.

I have also included a load of photoshops of possible colour choices of what the car should look like when finished. I have narrowed the choice down to the dark blue or yellow.

Cheers to Clayton (clitti) for the shell.

Blue one looks best for my eye, electric so to say :D

Also that 2 door saloon is something incredible, car will be real head turner, I'm sure of that :)

Good luck to project, I believe this will take bit longer to complete than your previous projects? Not that project car will ever be complete, but I guess you get idea :D

They are the coilovers from my grey one, i need the inserts shortened to get the car as low as i want it with some travel left, so i took them off to do work to them, just used them to make the brackets up for the brembos.

Yeh just wondered if people wanted to say their colour preference.

No mate i'm changing the rear end on this shell, its much easier and safer, as a saloon is the same underneith all the way to the back edge of the boot floor.

Looks great mate, I vote for the electric blue... what about the V70R/S70R blue colour, or is that what it's supposed to replicate? This will be awesome! :D

Excellent Stuff, I did wonder when the big reveal was going to be :)

Its deffo got to be the yellow/Ford signal amber (you know the colour :wink: :wink: )

How are you planing on mating the engine to the rest of the transmission or will it bolt to the 360 gear?
