Never posted any of my builds. This is my 06 V70R Ti Grey GT with 100k.
Been working on it over the winter. All work done by me in my small shop with lift. She has awoke from a long sleep.

Will send more pictures this week. When I sold my 05 V70R, I knew I had to build another. I think this one is better. Installed a beautiful T5 sport steering wheel.

Also cut out sensors from my 4cs. Wrapped them up and tucked them away. No codes and buttons all work for upcoming tune.

Looking nice, Patrick! Love the exhaust tips. Do you have 07 stalks and air vent inserts laying around? They would add a nice touch to interior. I did it in my sonic.

Yes I do have 07 stalks and air vents. Thx for the compliment. Worked very hard on this one. The exhaust is from Eurosport without the resonator and a 8Fab downpipe. Sounds real nice.

Been working on these 18” pegs for a long time. Stripped down then primed, 4 coats of anthracite base, then 5 coats clear. Thought they turned out excellent. Much smoother than powder coating. All done in my garage with a HVLP sprayer.

Anthracite on Ti is one of my favourite combos.
