1999 v70 r in a salvage yard

Post by Empigt » Mon Apr 20, 2020 2:32 pm

Went looking for parts for my 850 r today and found a v70R black with tan interior. Somebody already grabbed the headliner, carpet, pass seat and door panels. Everything else seems to be there. Anything I should grab off of it? Or anyone need anything off of it?

Get front brakes .They looks like 302 and a-lot of people are looking for them and you can make little $$ on it.

The roof rails are there. I put the later v70 style on my 850. I may grab the thinner roof rails for mine and sell the later style I have on the 850.
On the brakes should I just grab the rotors and calipers or more?

Ya. They are there. In The next day or 2 and grab them. How much do you want me to offer for the 5 of them. I didn't look to see the color of them. Should they be the whites?

It’s pinned to the VIN on an ME7 car, in 1999, so it isn’t swappable. Worth buying for cheap as it can be cloned.

Front bumper cover is, I believe unique to the R but my knowledge is more P2 specific, so I could be off base there.

DIM with blue-faced guages is an R-specific part that some might want. The Pegasus wheels are almost a necessity if you are running the bigger brakes.
