Guys & Gals - Finally had the chance to upload some pics of my caR today.. We had a cool, cloudy day here in St. Louis, so it was an excellent opportunity to wash/vac the silver rocket. Enjoy!<p><IMG SRC="http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff233/scottn941/IMG_0448.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff233/scottn941/IMG_0450_2.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff233/scottn941/IMG_0451.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff233/scottn941/IMG_0452.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff233/scottn941/IMG_0453_2-1.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff233/scottn941/IMG_0454.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff233/scottn941/IMG_0455.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff233/scottn941/IMG_0456.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff233/scottn941/IMG_0457.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><i>Modified by scootss60 at 12:32 AM 5-11-2009</i><BR><BR>

I agree with you on the hood grill.. The only problem they pose is you gotta put the covers on every time you wash the car or it rains. Considering we get several frequent and often unexpected storms during the spring/summer here and I wash my cars at least once a week, it can be a pain in the a$$ with just one. But, it's always something to think about in the future.

Here's a pic of the under-hood colors as well; everything is done in a Volvo corporate blue theme (pin stripe, headlight film, engine bay) and the Nordkap leather ties everything in nicely. The previous owner, Mash, is the master behind the mods.<p><IMG SRC="http://i238.photobucket.com/albums/ff233/scottn941/IMG_0565.jpg" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>
