    My 2006 Magic Blue 2.0T V70

    Since it's turning into a bit of a project I guess I should make a thread about it here.

    It started off last year as a 'have to buy a new car quick' because my old S60 T5 was in a crash and technically totalled.

    I could salvage a lot of parts that are slowly making its way to the V.

    So far I have done the following;

    - Silvervision turn signals
    - Replaced upper engine mount with a PU one
    - Nebula Wheels
    - Vacuum lines
    - combined the V70 grill with an S60 grill
    - Carkit
    - BC Racing coilovers
    - spacers to get the wheels sitting right (imo)
    - Remap, should have about 220-230hp now
    - 3" downpipe
    - Mud flaps
    - new xenon bulbs
    - xenon in the fog lights

    So it went from this when I bought it:

    to this now:

    Next on the list are
    - XC90 front brakes that were on the S60 (will probably also find a set of rears)
    - replacing the headlight lenses and getting rid of the orange reflector
    - Paint the rims in the darker shade from the Titan rims

    Possible things for later
    - swap the 16T from the T5 & the injectors but it's gonna need a new clutch first because that'll be smoked quickly with more power
    - R bumper or S60 edition bumper
    - Have the plastic on the bottom painted in the cars colour.

    Today I replacing the headlight lenses....
    And covered up the orange corner lights.
    I found some sort of hexagon reflective tape on aliexpress wich did the job nicely.

    The process is quite simple, get some replacement lenses from vparts.se, cut off the old lenses, work hard to remove the leftovers of the lenses from the groove where the lens sits, add glue for the new lenses, stick the new ones on and done.

    Here it is in pictures;

    Update time,

    Finally fitted the XC 90 front brakes (rears will follow)
    painted the rims in The Volvo 932 Colour (darker grey)
    put on a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4's in 235/40/R18

    Next on the list is probably a new (stronger) clutch with a single mass flywheel, and possibly the 16T and injectors I still have lying around of the S60 T5 and XC90 rear brakes.
