      the interior looks incredible -- keep it comin!
      Thanks. I have thought about the eggcrate grill but im really feeling the chrome grill with the jewel headlights. About the jewel corners they will look nice but I dont like the orange on the sides of them. Wish they were all clear.

      It is SO nice to see a clean S70 AWD that is still in existence. Loving it so far, @jstrat85! Those door panels look fantastic too.

      I actually really dig the Pegs too. The BBS style wheels look nice but I would be concerned about them being eaten up by the NY roads. Certain rep companies aren't very well known for strength.

      Thanks bud. Hard to find old cars in super clean condition these days. Also love the way the door panels came out. Feels like a new car. And you really cant go wrong with the Pegs. Super clean wheel for these cars.

      To tell you the truth I like the black on the bleeder caps. Gives character.

      Just a suggestion,, since you painted the R yellow on the wheels, you should jack up and turn the front wheels so the R is in the same place as the rear wheels. Little details for the OVD (Obsessive Volvo Disorder) in us.

      Was super excited to instal the BBks on the car today, Finally got all the parts that I would need to complete this project porsche 996 front calipers, rear oem R calipers, SS lines, S60R front and rear rotors, CJs front brackets , front and rear pads and finally paint the calipers. Well guess what. Balls! The front rotors are to thick and wont clear the calipers. We shaved down the ears of the calipers a bit but the pads will still interfere. My guy said to shave down the brake pads to get more clearance, not sure if I just scrap this project or try and figure it out.

      Also not sure if the calipers will hit the rotor on the inner part of the caliper and if so if we need to add a spacer will it clear the 17 oem R wheel.

      Your rotor clearance issue is because you used the wrong calipers. Need 993 not 996.

      993 throat is 34.72mm (for a 32mm rotor) while the 996 throat is 30.65mm (for a 28mm rotor).

      Do you think if I sand down the ears I can make the 996 calipers work with these rotors?

      Not exactly. I bet you can sell the incorrect calipers and source the right ones for the same price

      The covers look really good in gold. I've seen a lot of yellows and a lot of blues, and some yellow and blue. Aside from the factory blue "R" color, your gold looks the best in my opinion. I'm surprised (pleasantly) you chose not to go with yellow, considering the rest of your exterior theme.
