      When I changed my mount I noticed a pool of oil under the spark plug cover, so I did some research and seen something about PVC/PTC and oil filler cap.

      So I took the PTC out and cleaned it.

      Removed pipe.


      Before cleaning


      All cleaned



      I did this yesterday. It wasn't nearly as bad as I feared it would be... so in the meantime I've just cleaned the oil cap and made sure it was on tight. Hopefully the oil wont pool up again.

      Today I bought some Rust Converter and High Temp paint and did some anti-rust work on my muffler to try and save it for another year. Its rusting pretty badly above the tailpipe. THe outer layer is gone in that corner.

      Replaced the winter motor oil (7K on it) and filter refresh as well as another trans "drain and fill". Swapped about 3 qts with new. ATF still looked new with about 7K miles on it.

      Also replaced some small vac lines with silicone and oiled the K&N.

      .....AND... just ordered the Koni FSD package for the car. Heard something clunk last night while driving home and noticed that I am riding really low in the back with the OEM shocks (90K miles). Ponied up and got what I wanted. I'll post what I think in May when they come in and are all installed. Christmas in May!

      Not sure about installation cost, any ideas?

      I dunno if I'd "paint" your headliner lol. Being as it's cloth. Just wrap it. It's easy enough to do.

      yeah im not opposed to wrapping it. is there possibly a thread to wrapping a headliner that someone has i know its probably easy but i dont wanna get into something without first knowing how to do it even if it is simple pics always help speed up the project doesnt have to be volvo either just something showing me how to wrap it properly

      Edit: nevermind youtube provided plenty of videos looks easy, hardest part is probably gonna be trying to take out the headliner...

      Yup it's extremely easy lol. So long as you get a material you're comfortable you'll stay with. Personally when I get time I wanna do mine in black Suede. I know everyone does that but it's about the only fabric that looks right on headliners of dark cars.

      I think i just threw up a little bit in my mouth haha, nahh im getting legit headliner material might steal your idea and do black suede i think your right it would look nice. Theres a place like 30 min away from me that sells good quality headliner material for a good price. Im gonna try and get it in a month and do the headliner...

      Droped In a HD Poly Trans Mount last night after work and it is flipping amazing!!! This is probably the most noticable mod I have done so far. An upper poly mount went in about 7000 miles ago and it was great but I belive my lower mount was stressed due to it. 1st and 2nd gear were a joke. I thought my clutch was going or I just didn't know how to shift Now, the car actually wants to go forward in first and cruises through high speed shifts from 4th to 5th!

      Ok, screw it, I dont even need my timing belt replaced anymore ...j/k

      One odd thing, I have a dstc failure warning come up after a bit of driving and it has not shown up since I put in the lower mount. Highly doubt it had anything to do with that and mostly just waiting for it to rear its ugly head Any Ideas on that guys??? If you say brake booster im going to cry, lol

      Color Bond works best on painted leather. Okay for some plastic items but probably not well suited for a headliner. Maybe a spray dye or just wrap it like others have.

      I used Color Bond on a set of S60R door panels 3 years ago and they still look great. The leather was orange and I changed it to tan. Even the area above the armrest doesn't show much wear.

      That plaid crap is just horrific, I mean who in their right mind would do that? lols, that's not being unique, I'd call it something a bit less flattering.

      What about using that Color Bond on front seats? I mean I wouldn't hesitate to spray the back seats since no one sits back there but I do a lot of driving and would almost expect it to flake off with wear. I have been looking for a nice black leather interior but I would be happy to turn mine black if I could. Can any one comment on the longevity when used on driver's seat?

      Looks good though s60wot, is that the 3M™ DI-NOC™ or generic?

      Thanks for the info guys!

      It's 3M Brand, easy to work with. Cost me about $25 delivered for 1' x 4' piece. Enough to do it again 2 or 3 more times as needed.

      Not sure about the leather paint on the front seat. Worked great on my door panels. No sign of wear from my arm rubbing against it above he armrest.

      Looks good though s60wot, is that the 3M™ DI-NOC™ or generic?

      Thanks for the info guys!
      You probly have already read this but offers some good reviews on the product http://colorbondtuner.net/reviews.html sounds like its a good product, but websites usually just take the good reviews in most cases. I looked on other forums and couldnt really find any follow up except for a few weeks after people still had no cracking or flaking, except for onhttp://www.teamshelby.com/forums/ind...aint-interior/ they commented that it may hold up for a year or 2 but will eventually crack and flake. Maybe try doing the back seats like you said since no one sits in them and see if it wears after a couple months. Deffinetly a good find though s60wot hopefully it proves to be a good product and holds up.
