      I am starting to get some parts in for the redo of the suspension. The UPS brought me the Torque Arm rear suspension components today. It mounts to the pinion of my 9" Ford housing and tabs are welded to the bottom to set the pinion angle. I will have to fab up a front mount when I get the car back from the body shop. Here are a couple pictures. It has a soling billet mount on both ends. Pretty stout unit!





      The front valance is coming along nicely. There is a little bit of work to do on the outer edges to transition into the fenders. The boxy parts is to provide a shelf where the bumpers will be. It will be hidden by the bumpers.



      We still have to find a place to mount the tranny and oil cooler but we will likely wait to do that until the new suspension clip is in.

      The front of the car is starting to take shape. Still have some fiberglass work to do but next will be the modifications to the grill opening.

      This build has our attention for SURE. We've always taken a liking to these old Volvos, so it's great to finally see one getting the pro-touring treatment!

      Thanks guys! The valance is done and now we are looking at a bolt on splitter. It still needs to be narrowed but it sure add a little bit of aggression to the front of the car. I am not sure if I like it or not yet but a few bolts and it is easily removed.

      I love all the metal work. I did 1/100th this much on my Mustang and I was tired, haha. This is such an elegant, flowing design. I really like how all the pieces add up to something that is decidedly not stock, but nothing jumps out as "wrong". Great work.

      The gel coat is on the front valance. Now on to the grill area. In addition I have also started to look into a radar jammer/detector setup.

      Personally, I like K40's stuff. I did Escort 9500ci's for years and always have to replace the rear sensor after about a year. The K40's have new design shifters that are updateable and can shift the new Dragon Eye guns, something the 9500ci cannot. Also, there is a new high end system out there from a company called Stinger, but I have no personal experience with them. I think Jeremy at JK Automotive Designs is a dealer.

      Thanks for the input Jay. I will add it to the list. I was looking at doing a combo of Anti Laser Priority for Laser detection and Escort for Radar. I will take a look at the K40 and Stinger stuff though. Thanks!

      The rear bumpers are getting the finishing touches.

      The work on the grill has progressed nicely this week. The first phase is pretty much fabricated. We are eliminating the chrome grill surround and making it out of sheet metal and round bar. A return flange still has to be made that will pull the grill back further in the opening. We want the egg crate grill to be recessed instead of protruding past the opening like a stock car is. We will also add a chrome surround. It is a little difficult to explain but will make more sense as it progresses.
