The Ammo Can build

Post by TheGageinator » Mon Mar 11, 2019 3:13 pm

Decided i needed to do a thread on my Overland build. Originally started this for the 2019 TX Gambler 500, but it turned into a little more..


2002 Volvo V70 2wd 2.4T lowpressure

197k miles all stock. Purchased the car for $700 wrecked, and drove it 1hr home. Some goofy issues like doors and windows not working, dash didnt work, losing lots of oil etc

I will post lots of pics and try to elaborate on them. Feel free to ask questions!!!

Here is the V70 after we cleaned it up ALOT. it was absolutely disgusting..... I have never been in a dirtier car. The owner literally would just toss cigarettes under the seat when they finished one... dog hair and puke i think everywhere, Food trash, etc

The window on the smashed door had been missing from the car for months, so the leather was black and rotten from rain and such getting in the car.

Moderators,
Can we eliminate all pics referencing guns, ammo and the rebel flag? Inappropriate for a Volvo car forum...and I'm a lifelong southerner.

I posted this for those looking to lift and offroad their wagons, so we can talk about it. I'm sorry that some of the pictures are "inappropriate"

Did you have to fix anything on the car to get it to drive straight after it suffered the initial damage?

no actually, the frame was good! The damage was mostly that rear door. The passenger front window and door handle didnt work, but fixed that up. I think i could put a good door on if i can find one. the previous owner left the car like that with no rear window for 9 months..... so the seat was destroyed. had to replace that

I may try to re do this thread already, the way I posted the pictures isn't the best, and I want to be able to explain each picture. If I have a chance tomorrow, I'll rebuild it.

No problem Gage, we moderate lightly here, as people here are the most respectful I’ve seen in any car forum I know,
