Body kit/lip kit

Post by donutV70 »

Hey guys, I’ve got a 99 v70 and have been looking around for some body panels or lip kits that work well with the p80 chassis

Wondering if any has had any luck finding anything for this chassis

Volvo Composites in the UK makes lipkits and will even do full R moulds for you. He has plenty experience and reviews shipping to NA too. He's also just about to bring out BTCC insipred front bumpers, which look tremendous.

Lip extensions and R moulds are priced at £110 + shipping, whilst the BTCC inspired airdam is £325 + shipping.

Below are some pictures of the items offered by Volvo Composites:

You can also bolt a Mk2 Renault Laguna (not sure if the same model name in the NA market) splitter on the front lip. They seem to be universal donors to be honest, they fit nearly everything.

of course, you need the V70R bumper first. Not the same as the 850R bumper.

Another look that I think is pretty cool is a cleaned up XC bumper, with a lip from a Subaru WRX. The ones with the Tribeca looking grille.
