Post by malcolm nz » 19 Jun 2013 10:33 am

hi all my name is Malcolm im from new Zealand. I have a 1986 Volvo 360gl and a 1988 360gls. both have there problems gl has a sunroof that worked occationally and no head light wiper arms a blowen diff (drifting too much) and loads of dents only panels with no dents were the front doors. where as the gls had one and a half head light wipers original tape deck now wof or reg (similar to MOT and tax) a tank of diesel :( ambient temp gauge that dose not work broken electric window motors rust in front doors taped in sun roof that is full or rust. im in the process of making the gls into a minter a week after I brought it I had fixed all that it failed wof on so now it has wof and reg next was the sun roof gear box was shot just like the rest of it so out came the sun roof from the gl and in it went to the gls now its fully working next was the front doors I looked on the forum to see how to remove the doors a tool was needed and only one I could find cost 21pound I am not going to pay that so I made my own only cost $5.60NZD and that includes a lot of spare tool pins and nuts. now front doors are rust free and all central locking and electric windows work. many more things to do but this is my rant over for now. oh almost forgot rims cant find any with good dish or 13x8 so I made some.

Hey Malcolm,I'm in Stratford.Currently having to fix a 360GLT after doing a 360 into an embankment in New Plymouth.

I'm keen to know how you did the banded steels,is it easy? I have a MK2 Golf and would love some wider steelies for it.

Are you running standard motors in your cars?

yeah have seen the white one in new Plymouth. it drove past me a few time on site.and I have only seen the maroon one once. good to know about how many there actually are in new Plymouth. quite a few for having a population of only 75,000. I know of a mint single owner 360 for sale in Inglewood 2k though.http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-ca ... 531496.htm
