Hey Everyone, long time no see!

Just wanted to post a picture of a basic new project that my wife and I just completed and debuted at the SEMA Show last week, a 2005 Volvo V50 T5. While shopping around for a "new" car, we figured we'd get back into a Volvo and try out a wagon this time.

We didn't really have any major plans for it but with SEMA approaching we figured why not and started ordering some parts for it and see how it came together. With the help from some great friends at Rotiform, Falken, KW Suspension, THULE, 3M and Daley Visual we were able to get it done and to the show where we were happy with it.

Anyways, enough talking... here you go:



For those of you that have been around here for a while, here's a link to my old S40... which I still regret selling:

... and here's a nice little piece SpeedHunters.com did on it too:

I'm going to go out on a limb and say you kept the Heico lip when you sold the S40? :confused:

Loved that S40! It always inspired me. Can't wait to see where the V50 will end up.

Thanks for the kind words everyone! This isn't anything to blow people away, just something simple for the wifey to get from point A to point B in. As far as the lip, it's a new one that I picked up from Heico a little while back... the other one was sold with the S40.

Let's just hang on to this quote to remind Gene as he undoubtedly will continue to transform this V50.
I am hype to see where this ends up, although it looks fantastic already. custom performance mods perhaps???!!!

Haha, we'll see what happens but I wouldn't expect much more.

Yup, Neil's my older brother... he's still playing with cars, check out tjineditionroadshow.com.

Wheres your supplier? I can't seem to find anything online? Did they discontinue this line?
I just went through Heico US direct, try to get in touch with Todd Henderson. I know they didn't have many of these in stock as of a few months ago but he brought one in for me.

Thanks for all of the compliments!

It might be going for sale soon, I'll keep you guys posted.
Lol, that was quick. Do you ever hear bout your old S40? Curious if its still all together or if they detuned it a bit.
