      JaredR's Mom's 1999 Pewter S70 GLT

      100k miles. Needs an immobilizer issue resolved and obviously the standard upgrades and then it should be epic.

      These wheels are great example of what happens when you don't care about the brakes and wheels.

      Yeah and they feel like they're all bent too so those gotta go. Plan is to use them to scrap the 04 on. This car will be getting Perfo wrapped in zLine AS. And 302s.

      Exactly. Not buying anything more than necessary for this thing. There's too much junk sitting around and it needs to be put to use or disposed of.

      We almost bought that one but I really wanted to stay 99+ for anything that is not intended as a toy.

      So, so smart - but you know that more than most. For other followers like me with not nearly that knowledge, pay heed; the ‘98 S70 project I picked up last summer for $500 is a bigger PITA because of the MY. Can’t even clear the SRI.

      Nothing wrong with -98 as a toy car or if it has been well cared for its entire life. But I wouldn't want to mess with one, especially bringing it back from the dead, unless it was something special. I mean look at my T-5R.....296k and it is my preferred GT car because I trust it more than anything else in the fleet to not have some stupid problem at any given point in time. My S60 definitely reinforced that feeling last weekend lol. But my T-5R has been owned its entire life by people who have had a clue.

      If I knew when I started my 850R project what I know now, I would have realized that a 99-00 V70R in a premium color was the right platform for that project, not a 850R. I knew I didn't want AWD but didn't know then that it would take more effort to fight the shortcomings of a M4.3 car than it would have taken to delete the AWD.

      Let's dial up a constructive day:







      Now that we're not hungry, let's find out what we bought:


      Low miles! Lol. Whatever.






      Ok seriously who puts a sticker here. Like come on. Are you trying to get rear ended?





      Luckily it came off easily.







      Oh dear. This is going to need some major cleanup.








      Amazing how much you can get done in 3 hours when you have two people who know what they're doing.






      Have we made a big enough mess of the yard yet?





      Ooh clean things. Magic erasers FTW.











      Paint needs some help. This doesn't need to be and won't be to the level of my projects but I am still probably going to see how it'll polish out once the 850R is out of the way. I won't work on paint outside at this point.







      Upon closer inspection, this mismatched area has been painted. Makes sense given that we knew the port side doors were both replaced.





      There is some damage to the base of the B pillar. Seems to be fairly isolated and the car drives straight so not a major concern.




      More clean things

      I hope thats coffee stain on the carpets and not "Irritable Bowel Syndrome" Why is Dad washing the hull of the red boat when there is plenty of Volvo stuff to do. Ha, JK, great job on the level of detailing. Even pulling the climate control and stereo knobs for a thorough cleaning. Are you gonna swap wheels or is Mom good with the current set up ?

      Coming from cupholder area so definitely fits the profile of coffee.

      The cargo area mat is sitting on the red boat. We were using everything available to put carpets on.

      I am not good with the current setup. Getting Perfo wrapped in zLine AS and 302s. I have no idea if she cares but the current setup isn't up to my safety standards. Yokohama Avid Touring. They're terrible.

      I love how you pay attention to details. Not many remove knobs and buttons just to clean them up. Do you have a plan to upgrade standard audio to something more capable?

      Part of it is...and part of it is here....

      Still need to find an amp and harness somewhere.

      Update: she hates the Antlia and thinks the Perfo are going to look way better. She also wants better looking bumpers so if anyone finds some mint Pewter bumpers....

      She also thinks the interior looks pretty clean now. It's not 100% but it's definitely acceptable. My dad and I reassembled most of it this morning. The heater core seems to have a pretty major leak so we left out the driver's seat and carpet for now. Obviously not that we need to leave them out to do the heater core but it will make a bit more space to work in so why not. The previous owner also put a bunch of those scented things you hang from the mirror in it and that smell is still in the headliner annoyingly. Hopefully it won't take too long for that to go away.

















      Steering wheel looks fantastic after its date with the magic eraser. I was going to put the mint grey one from my dad's NA in here once we put the walnut wheel in his car, but, seeing how this came out, I think I am going to leave it. My mom seemed to think it was acceptably clean, too.

      By level of cleanness this car really pretends to be a project car and not a daily driver.

      Amazing what you can get done with a little elbow grease - cleaning up beautifully.

      What's up with that driver side rear door card - when they replaced the door they didn't switch cards?

      My mom insists on things being clean! That said, this will be a daily for her in a similar sense that my S60 is a daily for me, minus the road trips. She does about 3,000 miles a year and doesn't like going out in bad weather (and usually has the option not to).

      That is my guess too. It was never even plugged in lol. Obviously that's not going to do so I'll need to find an oak door panel.

      Very nice! Looks in similar condition to my S70 that's currently for sale. I'm honestly a little disappointed that I can't keep it for a daily, it's just so nice and clean... but I can't keep em all.
      The interior looks mint from the pictures!

      I've always used them and never had a problem, but failures aren't unheard of. On my old '98 V70, the one I replaced was an SCP core, and it was leaking ever so slightly. It was an older version with black end tanks though, so who knows if it was updated.

      SCP core runs noticeably colder than Nissens or oem and Nissens is crimped construction now so....
