      Last week this 2000 R popped up in the SS classifieds and it turned out to be local to me and quite affordable, so I pounced on it. The seller hit a deer in June and his insurance totaled it out, but upon inspection I found that the damage was confined to the hood, lights, core support, and radiator/condenser. The rad isn't leaking but one of the brackets is busted. The condenser got punctured by the horns when the core support broke. The seller had taken good care (4/2018 edit: lol not really) of the car prior to the accident and it doesn't have any obvious mechanical problems, so my goal is to get some straight panels on the front end and see how it drives. I have a 1998 V70XC in the same color that I've been on the fence about parting for a while, and I think I'm going to use as much as I can from that car to make this one nice. With only 135K on the odo it should have a lot of life left.

      As I found it (the Atlantis are mine, the seller wanted to keep his wheels):





      I was really impressed by the condition of the interior, aside from the worn piping on the driver's seat everything is in really good shape.



      At some point the car was the recipient of a mediocre pinstripe job, I'm hoping I can remove all of them. They don't look that bad at a distance but the lines down the driver's side are wavy and I don't feel like paying someone to add them to the replacement front end parts I have.





      After I got it home and pulled what was left of the lights:



      The core support was busted in a few places:



      Core support out:





      New hood on (debating whether to leave the '98 XC grille on or install a waterfall grille with the "correct" blue emblem):



      That's as far as I've gotten, hopefully I'll be able to swap fenders on Sunday.

      Great find! These cars are quite easy to fix from a deer hit, just like that one the same thing was damaged on mine, expect my fenders was good, front bumper was good, just got the hood condenser radiator core support and a couple hours and a parts car later mine was good as new!

      Yeah, considering how minor the damage was I was surprised that the seller's insurance totaled it. He said the repair quote was in the $4500 range. He also said he insisted on OEM parts, though, and I figure that (along with the cost of paint and labor) is probably what did it in.

      If I just needed to make it driveable I wouldn't mess with the fenders but the driver's side is seriously messed up (probably from an incident with a broken tie rod end that the seller told me about after I handed over the cash ) and the passenger side has some pretty big dents in it. I have a clean 426 passenger fender that's been collecting dust in my garage for a while so I figure I might as well use it.

      So a lot happened this weekend. I hit the JY and pulled a core support, e-fan, and hood latches from a 2000 XC.



      Pulled a fender from my '98 XC:



      Got the core support and new fenders installed:



      Fender gaps look good, I opened up the passenger side a smidge after I took these pics.





      At the end of the evening yesterday:



      Gonna order a new rad and condenser today, along with some bumper brackets, hose clamps, and rad hoses. I had to cut the lower rad hose because the hose clamp was too rusty to loosen.

      New rad and condenser showed up today, but the radiator got crunched in shipping. Guess it's gonna be another few days before I can do anything.

      Nice project - definitely worth saving with those miles and the interior looks pretty clean. What is the process in Ohio for inspection and registration? I am up on the east side of CLE.

      You need to have the highway patrol inspect it and present them with an itemized, notarized list of receipts for the "major replacement components" - e.g. the hood, fenders, etc. - with the VIN of the car the replacement parts came from. Not quite sure how I'm gonna handle that since most of the stuff came from my V70XC and I didn't buy it but I'll figure it out.

      Should have a replacement radiator this week. I met up with the PO over the weekend and got the receipts he had for the car - in about 25,000 miles of driving he spent nearly $9K on maintenance. The dealer must have loved him.

      If you have to do that much just to register it you might as well have the state issue a Rebuilt title.

      The inspection is part of the rebuilt title process - they're checking to make sure that no stolen parts were used to repair the vehicle. Once the car passes inspection the title can be branded as rebuilt and it can be registered.

      Holy crap I'm happy I live in a state without inspections. I couldn't imagine having to jump through all those hoops just to fix a 20 year old Volvo.

      It might not be too bad, we'll see. This is one of two situations where Ohio requires an inspection - the other is when you're titling a car you've bought from out of state, they check the VIN to make sure the one on the car is the same as the one on the title. The salvage inspection is kind of a pain, I agree, but we don't have any sort of safety or emissions inspections so it's not that onerous.

      Finally got a replacement radiator last week and installed the new radiator and condenser this weekend. I started the car and let it run for a bit, but the alternator isn't charging the battery so I need to figure that out before going much further. There's voltage on the exciter wire and I verified the connection so I'm not sure whether it's a bad alt or what.







      Put the bumper back on, everything lines up pretty good.



      Someone hacked in a new cat at some point, I'm going to have to do something about it - it's really ugly. On the upside the propshaft is brand new.

      Got the new headlights tonight, I went for Depo jewels and I'm happy with them but one of them needed a little work out of the box. The reflector came loose in the mail and I had to take the headlight apart to snap it back into place.



      Now I just need corners:

      Artifacts? It's not surprising that they get beat up during shipping, their packaging stinks. They really need some sort of cardboard or styrofoam insert to keep the lights from bouncing around in the boxes, but considering the pair was only $247 I'll deal.

      OK, I understand. I remember that the ones I had in my green R were a little uneven in terms of illumination across the pattern but it didn't seem out of the ordinary to me. They were still a massive improvement over the stock lights.

      Thanks guys, I'm really happy with how it's coming along. I ordered the corners from Tasca last night so I should have them in hand soon.

      Corners in, now I need to rivet the fender liners back into place and button up all the little odds and ends that have come up during the course of this project.

      Yep, they're (aftermarket reproductions of) late C70 lights. Here's the eBay listing I bought mine from, there might be a better source in Europe though.

      I pulled the alternator out last night and I'm taking it to get tested today. It's a genuine Bosch rebuild but it looks like it's been in there a while. I wish I didn't have to deal with it but at least compared to the -98 accessory setup it's a breeze to remove the alt.

      Those are a no go in Europe. Nowhere to be found...

      I did not see any e-code lenses when I tried to peruse the Skandix website.
      Thanks.

      So apparently the tester the chain parts stores use can't test the '99+ style alternators outside of the car because of the bracket that's cast into the housing - I went to O'Reilly and Autozone and both of them gave me the same line. I ordered a used alternator from Erie tonight as ammo for the parts cannon but I'm not sure whether there's anything else I can do in the meantime - put it back in and measure the voltage at the output terminal on the alternator while the car is running, maybe? Symptoms are a discharging battery (less than 12V across the terminals while the car is running) and a battery light.

      That sounds exactly like a dead alternator. Should be like 14v ish while running.
