In the home booth today sorting out the silver front splitter. Decided to go Matt black so was out bright and early to home bargains to get a can of primer and a couple of cans of Matt black.

Front bumper masked up.

Pretty happy with how it came out for £10!

You're younger than I'd imagined you to be😆

I like you Jim, and your “give no s***s” approach to car ownership. It brightens my day when I know I can log into the forum after 3 days with the assumption you’ll have sold one car and bought another.

Like a shared, perpetual car buying adventure.

Volvos are also very cool. When done right.

But this is hideous. Seriously.

The only thing that makes me happy, is knowing you may have sold it again in a week.

If I didn’t know you have an old Volvo fetish I’d be very confused right now.

I’m currently only slightly confused.

Changed the fuel filter on the green one as it was running s**t. Turns out it’s running some additional aftermarket pump as well. It was still running s**t so I filled it up with diesel and it’s now running a lot better.

Must just have to keep the thing above half a tank!

Be a shame if you crashed it with your pikey as f**k cut springs
I don’t think many on here would be that bothered.

My old one was on chopped springs and I managed to survive. A miracle I know, but it didn’t kill me.

I guess we’ll just have to see what happens.

I swear you just enjoy buying old Volvos to keep doing the same mods to them.

Does look better, so it kind of makes sense.
