I really like the flash green color but the only ones that I have seen are 2004s. I don't really like the black moldings around the car and on the bottom. Does anyone know if they are on the 2005 flash greens or even better does anyone have a picture of theirs or someone elses.

I believe the first one is a 2004 with painted moldings too. I can't believe it's so hard to find a 2005 flash green s60r on the internet.

Here's mine, before and after. I had the upper moldings and the bumpers painted.<p><A HREF="http://www.rchin.com/Volvo/" TARGET="_blank">http://www.rchin.com/Volvo/</A>

Re: Has anyone seen a 2005 flash green s60r? (RainyS60R)

Thanks, it was absolutely worth it. I would definitely do it again. I like the dark bottom strips and the rest being body color. (That would have been a lot easier to achieve on a '05 model though!)<p>You can get all the '05 parts and paint them except the rear bumper piece. You have to sand that. Or you can just sand all the '04 pieces. It depends on which is the bigger constraint, money or time.<p>I'll look for my previous posts listing the parts. It would have been around March-April '04.

I'd love to see your Sonic Blue while you're in town!
