We had a joke about that yesterday



I might rock it this way for a little bit, probably for the Prarie City Rallysprint at the end of next month that I am hoping to make - but eventually I would like to throw it in the booth and paint the whole thing in the same white as the rest of the tub. I already have the paint booth offered to me, and my sponsor [bought me the seats and other safety equipment] is used to me running nice looking cars so I will doll it up eventually for his & her sake.

Oh hey it's been a minute

First off, screw photobucket - I'll update the picture eventually over to imgur

The car is running and [almost] driving. Just need tires and a steering wheel welded on.

I put the teeth gnashing, 80 hp/110 tq D24 diesel six cylinder from a 245 Diesel I bought [sold it to a friend for an LS swap] in it, mated to an M46 with a 4.11 1030 in the back.

That engine will go back out once I go through inspections, and in goes the real engine winking smiley

Last week I swapped out the axles and hubs for redrilled 5x114 stuff [with ARP studs pressed and welded in place]



The wheels are Method MR502'S, 15X7, et15, 67mm hub bore. Aside from the hub bore being 2mm too big they are PERFECT for a 240. Super convenient to have a reasonably priced [$160/wheel] readily available wheel option



Brake system is 100% plumbed now too

Looks good and nearly ready for some fun! Tempting to go the 5x114 route. The standard alloy volvo rims are not the most robust things. Well atleast the 5 spoke virgos. Hopefully what I got now is better but I am not going to hold my breath.

Meant to ask did you end up redrilling rotors or finding something else to fit with the re drilled hubs and axles?

Olympus!

But I am trying to have it done by early April to do some gravel testing with around here and to put some street miles on the drivetrain to work out any issues.

I would like to maybe do some research and find out if there is anything that might work that I don't have to redrill but I think the long term goal is two piece rotors with 5x114 hats and Alcon calipers. For now I have a few sets of stock redrilled rotors.
