So, as some of you may know, Will and I went to PA last summer with our friend Josh to help him pick up this 1999 V70 T5m. He also has a 2000 C70 T5m (that's in a bit better shape) and his plan was to fix up the V70 and eventually sell the C70, but various factors resulted in him deciding he would be better off to keep the C70 and add a truck to his fleet instead. When Will and I heard about this, we decided it made more sense for the two of us to buy it rather than see it hit the open market.

This is also a "base" T5 so no sunroof and the vinyl/cloth power seats. They were trashed
so Josh swapped those out for base manual seats. Problem was it turned out the manual seats weren't actually any lighter than the power seats (wtf) so he decided that wasn't worth it and got R seats for it. I don't have a picture of that part.
Then it got Comets wrapped in zLine AS.
Then it started getting cold so it got Canopus wrapped in WRG4.
Then, last month, Josh and I decided it was time to get the C70 off of jackstands, so I helped him put the rear suspension back together. He decided that car was awesome and that he should keep it instead of the V70. So now here we are. As of right now, the goal is to start the restoration in Q3 2019, after we have some of our ongoing projects off the books.
