Re: New Volvo c304 owner new engine swap/ camp rig project

DISCLAIMER! I know im not the best fabricator out there! (yet) But its mostly all meant to be functional and easy to fix. Its not a show truck it will be used!

Re: New Volvo c304 owner new engine swap/ camp rig project

She sits in there nice and snug but still plenty of room to work on! Next I decided to tackle the steering as I couldnt move her around the shop without getting steering functional.

Re: New Volvo c304 owner new engine swap/ camp rig project

Re: New Volvo c304 owner new engine swap/ camp rig project
