Haha, with metal work like this, I have no idea what I'm doingWOW!!!!
Love this! That's exactly what i am going to do now as my 242 has some massive holes in the front footwell and under the seats, exactly as you got there lol. I needa have a chat to you lol
It was a HUGE pain, but I was using crappy spot weld removers in 30C heat. I got better ones the other day and it has been night and day different for removing panels.How hard was it to remove the under seat panel? Did you drill the spots out or just harassed it out of it's place?
That's what i was doing yesterday evening. Done most of the drivers side, but still, loads to do. Will try my hand and drill at it later in to day.
Well, i use the ebay special spot weld cutter, the little spring loaded needle with a crown over the tio that drills around the spot weld. Works quite ok, but still, a bit of a pain... Will go ham in a few hours again haha.It was a HUGE pain, but I was using crappy spot weld removers in 30C heat.

Get a flapper wheel on the grinder, find all the spot welds and drill them out. Should pop off pretty easily if I had to do it again.
I just used some photo scanning app on my phone, there are a bunch. There are some good models for the 242 already though, you shouldn't need to scan your own. I think someone pulled this model from the game assetto corsa and it seems pretty accurate: https://a360.co/3JHXpbrThat looks amazing!
How did you scan it all? Loads of pictures and then shove it all into a program to render it? Looks ace! I might do that to the 242 shell so i can do some modelling on the wings for the widebody. We shall see
Keep on chugging!
A Member on here PM'd me some links and a place near them that sometimes have NOS sheet metal parts and I was blown away that they exist, had no idea. Still no LHF jack member to be found yet, they might be all sold outHave you tried to contact CVI? The jacking points are temporarily out of stock but maybe they get them again? https://www.cvi-automotive.se/en/articles/2.20292.58739/jack-member-240-75-93-lhf
Oh, for sure if you're going to call, ask about that LHF jack member. The other stuff I need is in stock, and now I'm going to save myself a ton of time just buying a few of these instead of making them.There's also Brookhouse Volvo specialists in the UK that i am trying to get parts for my 242 from. I can help you with some bits like ringing them etc if you need.
