2.8 Der Panzerwagen Updates

Things have been moving along on the Volvo, although slower than I wanted. One of the lower controls arm broke, causing a horrendous clacking noise that alerted me to my impending doom. Luckily, the part was $45…

I also got my hands on an aftermarket grille that I like much better than the stock one, along with a nice little “R” badge. Overall, the look is pretty slick, with the blacked-out wheels and de-badged grille. I may decide to black it out, but I’m going to leave it alone for the time being.

Now I just need a new front spoiler so I can fit the replacement fog lamps I have lying around. Once I fit a roof-spoiler and maybe some new headlamps, she should look the way I want her to look.
