Hi Y'all.<p>In the past, I had a 1986 740 wagon that I stupidly sold and I want to get another Volvo wagon. I found a 1984 245 Turbo nearby and it seems like it's in decent shape other than some surface rust on the edge of the hood and some rust around a rear wheelwell where it looks like some moisture got under the undercoating. The fuel pumps seem to be in working order, the wiring looks pretty good, but what should I be looking at that's specific to this model and year? Thanks in advance.

Yup. That's the one. The fuel pump issue has been resolved. What about the wiring in these? The downfall of my 86 740 was the biodegradeable coating on the wiring. Is that an issue on these too?
