Needed to wait for 64mm Volvo hubcap stickers. Looks a lot better!
Looks like most if not all the scratches are in the clear coat. Clear coat can be sanded with 600+ wet and dry. Then a new clear coat applied.
Thanks for the tip!

Errrrr....

Maximum working pressure of an auto brake system is under 2000psi

An SAE union will have a working rating of 5000 psi, and a minimum burst of 20,000 psi

All fine as long as workmanship is to standard.
Steel line splice is fine. I thought we were talking about spicing rubber flex brake hose.

Oh no you can't! There is not a day goes by when I don't check to see if Abscate has posted a new comment on any thread to see if it is funny!
I am waiting to see the day when you have commented on all the posts that come up on my list since I last logged on. You have darn near come close recently! Try harder!

Today I checked out my new customized exterior of 2001 V70. Random dimples on the top surface provided by hail storm. No broken parts found and no damage to driving performance.
