      C70 "R" Front Bumper

      My friend has a 2001 C70 and has seen the R style front bumper on them, and he was wondering where you get it.
      Can anybody help me out?

      You buy a 98-00 V70r bumper from Tasca volvo, Daryl Waltrip( assuming you live in that state) or some other dealer and install it on the c70. They come prepainted from the factory. You will also have to buy the fog lamps assemblies and a few other goodies but from what I've been told its pretty straight forward.

      IM Chilledman for details. I believe he's performed that swap a few times.

      Totally straightforward. You'll also need some pop rivets (8) for the wheel wells to replace the ones you drill/cut out from the fender liner. There are bolts you'll need to remove in the front as well. Whether or not your friend can get an R bumper pre-painted depends on whether his C70's paint color is a match to the colors that were available to the R. In other words, if he has a white C70 he's going to need to get the bumper painted.

      I ordered from them, they were very nice and price, even shipped, was still very affordable.
