Volvo 740 wagon. The Beat Box. (NEW CAR!)

Recommended Posts

I drilled a hole in the lower radiator hose to make for easy/lazy draining

Spal install is underway. Using stainless hardware and Spal wiring. The clearance is SO much better.

Got bored and made a place for the pressure washer nozzles with my drill and some HF grommets :lol:

Upper radiator hose 'sploded on the wagon and got the nice clean engine bay all dirty. No worries though, replaced the hose. Going to top it off w/ coolant and clean out the bay

Thanks bsneon98! I think it's a fairly generic Foam Cannon from amazon on our pressure washer

 

Both the cars are running this morning :wtf: Waiting for the next thing to break :lol:

I *might* have Dad talked into selling me the wagon for good. Hoping to get it squared away before winter.

For now, the mad scientist (my roommate) brought home these ramps from his parent's place. And now he is doing electrical wizardry

Another off topic addition to the garage ?

A local friend hooked me up with a coin tray for my 740, so I fixed (and then cut up :lol: ) the dash trim to fit the tray a little further back.

Took the 740 out to 2 separate car meets

Played with an ATS while taking a shortcut through Mexico to the next meet

Made it out for the end of the second meet

On the day-to-day grind..the master cylinder I put in the 744 failed, so I decided to try my hand at rebuilding the old one I had pulled out. Mid-project as of this post, so we'll see how it works

The wagon received my Alpine head unit from the red car, along with lighted window switches

There are a lot of 1-year-only quirks to that car and I'm over it ? Plus I may or may not have hoon'd it to death ?

The wagon is coming along. Got the microphone placed and installed some speakers I found in a Volvo at the junkyard a few years ago ? Better than the stock speakers by a long shot so far.

Got into my amp collection and pulled these out. Probably going to put them in my Roommate's Volvo 240 for the year just to get them going for a while
