      My TB seemed to actually be bad. Replacing it has improved throttle response a ton.

      put the seats in there and get them level as needed. Then put the seatback upright into an ALMOST uncomfortable position, then scoot the seat back giving yourself about 1/2" or so of free room to get to the release handle for the carseat. Good enough for me in the legs department. Also if you want to squeak out every last inch of free room, lift your seat as high as it will go and push the steering wheel as far in and up as you can. Your legs lose about 4-6 inches of stretch but meh, I'm used to suffering for my love.

      Took apart the waterfall and bought some plasti-dip - flat black to match the interior. Looks significantly better than that crappy satin aluminum finish in all it's dented and damaged glory.

      Also discovered just how much a crappy person owned it before me - The shifter boot was GLUED to the bottom of the waterfall and then STAPLED IN, and some of those staples actually caused the dents in the aluminum that I was wondering about.

      Ugh... that sucks! I have the automatic so no boot, but damn... staples?! That aluminum sure shows the little dents/scuffs... I've been contemplating dipping it as well, or maybe trying vinyl again. How's the flat black look?

      Here's a quick photo of it - it matches nicely with the rest of the dark interior. Personally I have never really grasped why some designers definition of luxury involves all black and then symmetrically placed light/shiny bits. It's like most of them were high and got their inspiration from a ****ty 1950's (black and white) movie about a kaleidescope.

      Looks sharp good job, I too am doing stuff to my things!




      Went with copper on the spare water fall I picked up at the scrap yard for practice, I like how it came out so I'm gonna match the center console and door handles now.

      Took out the maf sensor and cleaned it. Since she is acting up again.
      Will clean the throttle body this week also. She runs so bad when it is hot that I have an appointment at the workshop in June. So it's bicycle time for me

      No. The Volvo part is 650 here. The Bosch was from FCPEuro and has a lifetime warranty so it cost me nothing but more time. It looks like some wires inside frayed, shorted it, and started a fire. Im hoping it was a one off defect. Replaced the battery too.

      Inspiring! What kind of paint did you use? Did you do 2-3 coats of clear?
