RE: Volvo 245 Turbo
Me and my dad inspected the 245 very thoroughly, then decided what parts we need to order and where we need to cut for replacement panels. I replaced the 12 year old tires with some newer ones that were from my GT.
The spare wheel well on the driverside is already out (photographed the whole process but didnt notice that there was no SD-Card in the Camera) and we repaired the rust on the rear left. About 3 weeks ago we took a 500km trip and bought 4 rustfree doors from a 1992 240 Classic. We noticed, that the trunk hinges are bad, which is why the trunkdoor is hanging and rubbed against the metal, causing the rust holes.

I invited my parents to the Retro Classic in Stuttgart, to learn more about patching rustholes and replacing whole panels. We were able to talk to a professional restorer from the BMW Museum.
