      I think I was/am misunderstanding what you mean. The ďkickĒ panel under the dash. Has a map pocket in the newer ones?

      Yes, the '99+ P80s have the map pocket in the kick panel. Those panels are in place on all P80s, however the large steel knee bolsters behind those are not present on '99+ cars.

      I remember having to remove the knee bolster from the passenger side on my '98 V70 when I added the map pocket, because the pocket doesn't clear with the bolster in place.

      Put the dash with the speaker in and Dolby unit today. The center speaker from what I can tell isnít making any noise or even moving, I put the pigtail in that goes to the radio, what could be the issue, does the center speaker not work in 3 ch mode?

      Went out for a few hard tests tonight. and the parking brake light won't go off now. No resistance while down, drives like normal, and it still works, any insight to that?

      May have a loose wire in the center console or just the light trigger itself being wonky.

      Yup, check the switch under the handle. It might just be sticky.

      If you push down all the way on it, the light should go off. If it's bad, just grab one at the junkyard.

      When Volvo cross bars are too rare



      Wing installed



      Suspension refresh to happen soon



      Bought new sockets for number plate bulbs. Current ones lasted 3 years.



      And new valve cover gasket is also on my to-do list

      took my car in for diagnostics

      First time in 20 years I let someone try and diagnosis my car. It felt so uncomfortable. So I stopped the tech since there were no related tech journals or software updates. I will be diagnosing my can bus issues with the TCM over the next few weeks. My car is still under factory warranty. But i don't want flat-rating techs looking at my vehicle at the dealership.

      Looking good. I was super confused by that valve cover gasket at first lol. What about when Volvo cross bars are too narrow?

      They do, I test fit them on my old wagon, which had the thinner style rails.

      I had a chance to grab oem roof rails actually but thought too long and someone was faster.
      However functionality seems to be pretty limited due to curved design. Large flat load wouldn't stay there very well imo.

      A few days ago I took some old engines to the scrapyard. One block I kept and got it hot tanked to use as a table. Anyone wanna buy a cleaned and painted 99 B5244S block for their own table?

      Then I took advantage of the nice weather to get a good wash in:

      1999 V70 R -- gone, but not forgotten.
      2000 V70 R -- 04 B5234T9 w/ 18T, Stevo tune, M66, CX Racing coilovers, 996TT front BBK. Always working on something...

      Yes.
      More yes.
      But how dare you use anything that's not Nokian on your car, SMDH.

      I was thinking about cleaning up the block I have to use as a table, but I don't know where I'd even put it. Right now it's sitting in my trailer out in the elements... possibly waiting to go to the scrapyard.

      Very nice! I washed the dust/salt off mine yesterday and proceeded to get three different people want to stop and talk about it in the last 24 hours. One guy told me it was the nicest looking R he'd seen in years. Felt pretty good. I guess I need to wash it more often, LOL!

      Good to hear from you, Fred. Doing what I can to keep it pristine. (Needs a full detail this spring.) Hope you (and the Sonic) are doing well.

      Eight weeks to go to the unveiling of the new and improved Sonic. Just completed some mechanicals, including all 4C replacement, IPD HD front and rear sway bars, subframe bushings, IPD HD control arms etc on suspension. Did full PVC and oil trap replacement. Installed Snaab aluminum charge piping kit, some coolant hoses and other rubber bits.

      Leather replacement turned out pretty well. A few spots have a few more wrinkles than I expected, but the installer thinks they will lessen as the leather relaxes. Nice brown color with black carpet swapped in. New black Volvo rubber mats front and rear.

      Respray starts Monday, expected to take 8 weeks. Looking forward to posting some pics after completed!

      I was able to get a new original OEM carpet for the front drivers side from Volvo. The passenger and rear were used, excellent condition from Erie Vovo.
