Volvo is coming about pretty good...Going to pick up Arrakis 17s today hopefully and I realized that Robert Hilton from Hilton tuning lives down the street from me(1 in a billion chance of that happening) I put on my homemade custom painted grill and my Thule roof rack, engine runs amazing and doing my vacuum lines today, overall I'm stoked with how it's coming out

Looks great! More sleek than most! I can't get over how nicely that hood fits into the body.

Thank you very much! I love how it looks so far, and I can't wait to put the Arrakis 17s wheels on, gonna have to mount the tires tomorrow and throw them on, after that I just want to put the yellow film on the fog lights and tint the windows a little bit. That's gonna be all for the appearance, later on(depending how the 17s fill out the wheel well) I might put on the lowering springs from Ipd..Although I'm not sure if I want to run the ipd springs with stock struts(they were replaced and have around 60k on them). Once that's done I will get a Hilton tune stage 1, then I will consider it complete. I was thinking about doing more to it but after all it is my daily driver and a lpt with an auto trans, so stage 1 will be more then enough. At the very most maybe a high flow muffler and an open air short ram intake.

Cool! New rims look nice and body looks brand new!
What do you normally use your roofrack for?
1999 V70XC. Stock, except.... I like tinkering:
electronics
2nd battery (with isolator)
2200w pure sine wave inverter
LED Work lights in tailgate
LED traffic advisor
RC parking lights

audio
stock tweeters front and back
8" underseat powered sub

camping extras
'drawer system' in trunk
solar panel on roofrack



Feel free to PM for pics

Thanks I love it too, but I'm going to order nEw tires and refinish the wheels then, roof rack, is mainly used for bikes in summer and I also use it for skiis and snowboards during winter time
