      Here's what I'd do. Buy a shark fin that'll fit over the thing you have now, paint it, and 3M trim tape it down. That eliminates any holes...

      I can't imagine never caring about a hundred. He's just a super nice, very generous guy. That car is gorgeous. He's fortunate to own one in rebel and is the best steward of any car, especially a Volvo. Hoping to continue the tradition and help someone out one day soon.

      Do you know how large that shark fin would need to be? it would be like an advertisement for 'shark week' on Discovery channel!

      Why not just paint that thing that's on there now and see if that looks acceptable?

      Honestly no, but the nav is there and uses it. Yes, iPhone way better but hate to disable stuff. Sirius will come next year when cashflow is better and I activate it.

      That's what I was going to say. Then what do you do with the cable or does your cable not show at all?

      1: Sand and prime until smooth, then paint it, this won't take much work
      2: Just remove it for now, polish and wax the roof (the NAV does NOT need not use it)
      3: If you ever go with Sirius, install a better, tiny, THIN, 2' round and correct Sirius antenna. They are very unobtrusive and can be mounted anywhere including your dashboard corner.

      Thanks, all. May remove like Maronha did. And then use interior one for satellite later. If it needed to be exterior was thinking a small shark shaped one would work. Certainly they must come from volvo for newer R designs in passion red. There is a wire. If not original to Volvo I think it's probably coming off the roof.

      Yes, exactly! 7s Zs combined for a total of 7 characters......hence why it's only a half-assed job of stealing your idea since it's not all Zs.

      The personal email address is Seven_Zs. My sister used to make stuff for me in school (9 years younger) with Zs. It's for sure something I have had going on for 30 years this past August, which is why I need to get them renewed/remade and move them to the vR. My wife hates them and is driving the s60 now, so she would be happy. I have seen in my time owning these Z tags (MD limits you to seven characters or I'd have gotten 8): GGGGGGG, XXXXXXX.
      For the vR, I thought I'd grab AAAAAAA (the whole alpha and omega thing ) ,VVVVVVV but all of those are taken, by dumb stuff, too. A is 2015 Civic, V is 2004 Toureg, R is a 99 Town Car (ugh). What about VRVRVRV (my next favorite), VRVR4ME, 07PRVRG, 345VR70? None of those are taken. I'd hate to lose the Z tags after having them all this time, and all these cars, and all these miles...
      When I'm out and about, I take pictures of Zs, and so do friends, like the VA one below from a neighbor at a regional soccer game:

      A sign in the now moved ToysRUs in Times Square:

      This is the lock screen image on the iphone... (first one to cite where it was taken, wins an attaboy):

      and then I saw the sleeper truck (or whatever it's called) on Discovery or Speed Channel. Can't remember which. I don't know if I should be flattered or disgusted:

      I have been to exactly 0 events ever that I didn't create lol. Although I guess I arrived at the tail end of a Limerock C&C to watch racing with a friend. I got my nickname because my sister changed my name in my contacts to Waffles. It stuck.

      Hounddogger came from my first email and a total mishearing of an Elvis song.

      Carisle and VOMAR were official. This isn't. Just hoping to get a fair number of owners to agree to a time and date, place.
      What events did you create?

      Will see, but whose bringing all the coffee and donuts? Would it be better to have it close to a DD or Starbucks?

      This meet is giving me some serious motivation to try to get the T-5R back in action so we can bring it if the weather is good.

      You better get to work! Do you have all the parts already? Maybe I shouldn't clutter up ZZZZZZZ's thread with this.

      Somebody bring a folding card table (we all have wagons) and I'll spring for donuts and coffee.

      No clutter. It's all good. Don't you have your own part you want to install?

      I think I'm going to just get a hood and the headlight trim and take it over to MAACO and live with whatever they can do with it for like $100 or $200 until I graduate and have the money to do it right with some genuine Glasurit paint and someone who knows how to work that stuff. The fender I can straighten out enough to be perfectly functional even if it doesn't look 100% perfect.

      I had thought about trying to paint the parts myself, but that realistically isn't going to work in the winter even if I was able to pull that off and I really don't want it sitting like it is now for the next 6 months.

      Just take it to any reputable shop. Don't overthink the whole situation until your ready for the whole frame off restoration your planning!

      What events did you create?
      A cruise to a tea house... It's usually a fun drive (we do it all the time anyway). Nicely paved roads, trees, usually pretty empty, can have a good time...
