Re: Rear Light Clusters - problem solved !

It seems they've gone public!! They have been announced (with pictures) on the Volvo 480 re manufacturing page. I would post a link but I'm at work and facebook is blocked, so I can't :lol:

Re: WANTED: rear lamps covers

Don't know about everyone else, but mine are fine except the smoked cover. Surely there has to be a way of reproducing that single lens?

Re: Mud flaps

To be honest, if you need to replace the shocks and springs, don't bother with them. I've just changed mine (exactly the same set up as Jifflemons)They just hit the floor every two minutes anyway. I'll be taking mine off tomorrow as they're just annoying now, I need to hold on to them for now but mi...

If the timings allow I'll try to get over with mine. Even if it's only for a brief meet up at Rutland it would be good to meet some of you. :D

Re: Oooops I did it again....

I've just had my screen done £100 excess on the insurance worked out far cheaper than the £450!!!!! I'd been quoted.

Re: How to increase power on a 1992 car but while keeping as close to original condition as possible

There's always a way if you really want to do something. plenty of place can manufacture or even print parts to sort any issue, it's just a matter of how much time, money, effort and most importantly skill you have available. of course there's always the argument that with enough money the other thr...

Re: lazy looking

I'm REALLY sorry, it had been a crappy bad news day and I wasn't really paying attention, as demonstrated by the poor post placement :cryhard:

Re: hold on lads i've got an idea....

sounds like a plan to me. some of my other forums ( I'm terribly disloyal :wink: )do this and it works really well. It also means you can download and print them easily, which is handy if don't fancy taking your laptop under the car with you :lol:
