Re: What period aftermarket radio/casette to use?

Just saw this on eBay. Not sure what model you have (or if the seller is anyone on here) Celeb CD player. I'd buy it as it's cheaper than the quote for repair to my radio but I want cassette. :D https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/volvo-480-Celebration-Radio/202869451951?hash=item2f3bf62caf:g:g0cAAOSwhLReEKPg

Re: Anyone had experience with these types of garage?

So, Christmas came just in time for a few of our 480s who are now nicely nestled in a Carcoon. :D I ordered mine on Nov 18th and it arrived on Tuesday so around a month but looking tonight, it says at least a 46 day wait for that size. Anyway, if you want one, just don't be in a rush! I ordered from...

Re: My Old Turbo (L904 FCW)

You're very....brave. :)

How do you feel about it? Are you leaning towards 'I loved that car, do it' or....'let's just buy another'.

Re: Anyone had experience with these types of garage?

I've got carpet the tarp to put the base on but, yes, going away and gravel probably wouldn't be the best unless you can rely on a neighbour to take charge! It is mains, so just going to be some sort of extension from outbuilding for me. You can then put that inside the Carcoon, I believe. It has a ...

Just ordered the size 4 Carcoon from Demon Tweeks (as Carcoon were hilarious.

This amounts to less than £10 to run continuously for a whole year.
Oh, well, that's insanely nothing! I was expecting kind of 'having a fan on all day, every day' prices!

Thanks for the info :)

Re: Anyone had experience with these types of garage?

Thanks guys. First thought was the standard, angled 'garage' but, I thought, with limited space (if we move to this house) I don't think I'll be able to maneuver into it at the only angle it could stand in space wise. The folding ones seemed like a good idea to get around it and perhaps not as 'in y...

Anyone had experience with these types of garage?

I cannot bear to put £4K into my current home for the garage I want. It’s on shared ground and I feel like there will then be issues over the space left after putting my car in it.... So, I’m looking at moving to somewhere with all my own outside space (preferably with a garage but unlikely given my...

Re: 2005 Lincolnshire Meet Photos.

I unofficially own it again as of yesterday, but some reassembly is required!!! (And it was rusting a bit in 2005...so bodywork likely, though its been dry stored. There is something decidedly Royston Vasey about the 480 isn't there.......Welcome to Volvo 480...You'll never leave. :lol: Hope all go...

Re: Wanted - under bonnet rubber seals & other things

I just came across these guys I wasn't aware of previously.... They have some 480 bits in at present. Worth a call. :) https://www.stonesvolvospares.co.uk/ Did I read somewhere on here that the 440 or 460 mudflaps fitted...maybe?

Re: 2005 Lincolnshire Meet Photos.

Those are definitely Vesa wheels on PCW but long gone so can't confirm it was a GT. Edie, do you not recall the poke-in-the eye interior though ? Al and I both hated it when we bought Sven, and it still doesn't appeal to us although the uniqueness does. I have to admit it gives us a buzz when we ta...

Re: 26th October Mini Meet Lincolnshire Wolds

Haha, I'm sure I'll compile another questions list by May! I got back to my car and realised I'd left the interior light on for an hour or so after we'd been searching for bits and bobs.... it didn't start quite as swiftly as it had been doing but no harm done, thank God! I've removed the other DRL ...
