    Default Volvo Wagon Build Thread

    Hey, figured I'd start a build thread and track my progress.
    Located in Lethbridge Alberta.

    Overall, the car is pretty decent shape.

    Plan for the car is to just get it to be a nice clean daily driver cruiser. I wanted a cruising car while I rebuild an engine for my mustang. Once that car is back on the road, then maybe I'll do more heavy modification on this car.

    Done so far:
    -New taillights (fixed broken lights)
    -Headlight bulbs (fixed highbeam issue)
    -Acquired and installed rear driver trim
    -Air filter replacement
    -Acquired and installed license plate lights (not working, wiring needs repair)
    -New front speakers
    -Door sensors
    -LED dome lights
    -Oil change
    -Seafoam
    -Fixed reverse light (didn't replace sensor, was unplugged - wiring needs future attention)
    -Recharged AC
    -Bought and replaced some interior clips
    -New license plate bracket (modified to 2 bolt)
    -Painted brake calibers bronze
    -New wheels

    To do list:
    -Replace hatch. Only real rust on the car, have replacement hatch from older 240. Just need to paint and install.
    -Rear gate wiring. No wiper, defrost, unlock, license plate lights. Have passenger IPD harness, planning on making drivers side. Doing at same time as hatch replacement.
    -Seal headlights. Lens pulls out?
    -1 door door not central un/locking
    -Fix heated seats
    -Timing Belt (have parts)
    -Rear hatch panel repair
    -Polish/paint correction
    -Clean/paint parts
    -Front lip repair
    -Cruise control lever. Previous owner replaced lever with cheaper level w/out cruise, have cruise lever hanging to still allow use. Want to replace with correct lever.
    -Odometer fix (have part)
    -Rear hatch shocks (have part)
    -Reverse light wiring


    WTB:
    -Cruise control lever
    -Odometer gears
    -Cool parts?
