Re: Houston Volvo & R Guys (Mach_T5)

Hello Chris 2,<p>What do you have in mind? Oh, did you see the R calipers in the "For Sale" section, are you still looking for some? The seller is selling one pair (not one side) ;-)<p><br>Chuck<BR><BR>

I forgot about that! I have no idea what we can do. Just a weekend lunch or something soon to catch up. I saw the R calipers! I was tempted, but my pockets are saying ouch right now as I got new paint and Recaro Sportster Cs seats. I got the wheels I had ordered for the V70R to fit on the S40. Serious lip on the 10'' rears! The R Calipers and Rotors will definitely be a project I will tackle soon.<p><IMG SRC="http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a338/BigStickChris/010e.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a338/BigStickChris/018e.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a338/BigStickChris/012e.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Let me know if you have any meet ideas Chuck.

Your car looks awesome, you've done a lot to it. Did you repaint the whole car? The color looks lighter in these photos than I remember.

It was graphite before, and wasn't going to tie together well with the black wheels. Thanks for the kind words Craina! You'll need to try and make it out to a meet we had a great time at the last one. Hard to think my car looked like this at the meet a month ago...<p><IMG SRC="http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/5646/img0692s.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>And now <p><IMG SRC="http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/5848/getattachmentaspxzvz.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>I do miss my R wagon though... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Houston Volvo & R Guys (Chuck_V70R)

It would have been nice if the event had take place in August while I was working up there in Austin. I am due for another Houston trip, so I might just make it that way.

Re: Houston Volvo & R Guys (Chuck_V70R)

Chuck, I did see this thread awhile back. I enjoyed the first GTG and would like to have another. Problem with this one is that it's on Halloween and Halloween is spoken for...three kids... Anyone else have any suggestions when/where?<br>David

Re: Houston Volvo & R Guys (Chuck_V70R)

I need some recommendations on a couple of things. Since I hate living here in Mississippi, I try to get all my mods and parts online or back in Houston. I'll be in town towards the end of October and I want to tint my windows and get the JRL mod done. Anyone know a good tint shop and a muffler shop? Let me know if you've had this done and where. Thanks!
