Greetings from Finland!

Post by Anslebus » 05 Sep 2017 11:22 am

Hello everyone,

I am a 23 years old Volvo 300 series enthusiast from Western Finland. I've been reading Volvo 300 Mania for a while now and found many helpful topics so far, so thank you all very much already! I hope someone will find my knowledge useful someday, I will share my projects with you in the future.

great colours, great cars, beautiful! Never thought of using barrels like that. How can you get the car that high up without a crane ;-0

Thank you! The barrels were a temporary solution to keep the car up, I supported it with forklift pallets after we got the tractor out of the way. The lifting process was quite exciting, although the lifting man wasn't a first timer :)
The barrels I used were empty, but I would suggest to fill the barrels with concrete to keep them in one piece if the car is supported only with them.
