Inner tie rod, air filter, trans fluid drain and fill, Volvo Boost Pressure Solenoid Valve. Inner tie rod on so tight I had to use a jack on a wrench to free it. Sigh, life doing repairs without a lift...

New Bosch coils and Volvo plugs (wow what a difference). Old plugs were Champion brand and at least 3 years old, very worn tips, .050” avg. gaps. The old coils started going out a couple months ago, lost a total of 3 over that time and replaced with cheap ($10) eBay used ones. My PCV system and heater core next.
Just ordered a GM valvebody from amazon for my AW55-50SN transmission once the weather breaks.

Yesterday I finally installed the new third brake light in my 05' V70, which solved the mysterious "check stop lamp" issue. No idea what was wrong with the old one as it was working fine, maybe the old connector was bad. I was suspecting that I reversed polarity initially, but that was not the case either.
And I also installed a new decal that I had laying around for a while:
