    all stripped out of their casings.

    Ignore the sikaflex, that was the first attempt, but they didn't line up properly, the second attempt was a proper slot for them all to fit in properly.

    How did those rozzers ever catch up with you Colin . Sneaky beggars must have crept up while you were having a snooze.

    Thanks for the pics and video - What were the cop cars doing there? Are they both still in service?

    They look like early V70's, so must be too long in the tooth... Despite one of them with the Police sticker still on it?

    The ex police cars belong to a couple of Volvo Tuning members. every car was stopped on the way in so that you could give your charity donation

    Very nice idea - I'm assuming they either don't get road use or the police sticker on them is removable... to avoid any risk of impersonating an officer

    Not much if any real progress over the past two months due to back and hip problems, but I really want to get back to it, so the only thing I've done is make a start on the boost pipe fitting issue onto the rear supercharger.

    Ohh look, an update, sorry it's just a tiny one. first thing I've done is re route the belt for the supercharger as it was a bit loose after running the engine for a while, so moved the idler pulley to a new location.





    Next little job was to mount the supercharger bypass/ dump valve, the only place I could really find for it was on the roof mount intercooler, so out with the hole saw
