:P Had the drivers seat restored. Mat Brown of Fibrenew East Louisville did a great job.

Drove from ny to Bos, inked a deal at MIT, up to Maine, back to Albany.

1730 talk at GE.

The magical P80 seat still makes me feel like I haven't been in a car

Picked this up today for when I do my SAS delete eventually. Just happened to stumble across this 850 HPT wagon. Yard had it listed as a 960...
The TURBO lettering is all I need to make my GLT faster than a T5 and beat Abscate's wagon.

June is coming up to be my driver, so I see your bet and raise you a Magnetti Marelli ETB, like new.

Found my fuel leak, small crack in the a elcd hose. Now I just need to get her to my fathers shop, not replacing that without a lift.

After all this work more poor 1998 V70 XC will get more then 300 miles to the tank and pass emissions.

Replaced the upper radiator hose with a silicone hose and some new ABA clamps. Interestingly enough my temps went down one tick on the instrument cluster. The old hose was most definitely in need of replacement and had some minor to serious swelling.

The next warm day I may conquer the lower hose and turbo/heater hoses.


Wisdom requires knowledge as a prerequisite, but knowledge can be developed due to a lack of wisdom.
In order to learn how to fix something, you must first learn how to break it.

I definitely recommend getting to the other hoses as soon as you can if they're getting soft or swelling. My cousin and I made the mistake of changing his expansion tank hoses and radiator hoses to silicone without changing his heater hoses, which were already pretty soft. Heater hose blew out two days later.
Then his radiator went a couple weeks later. Fresh fill of $40 Volvo blue coolant too...

Fixed my headlight wipers with ProParts - some issues with fitting.
Gathered up all my spares and pinged Dirk
