RE: Volvo 245 Turbo
We used 3 of the 4 free days during easter to repair alot of rust. It doesnt look like much from the outside, because we repaired many reinforcement that cant be seen on the picutres. We did some external repairs aswell, have a look for youself

Rear left quarter panel and wheel well in place and welded

While I welded the left part my dad removed the right wheel well

We ran into some problems with the rear right wheel arch, as you can see both replacement panels arent the same as the original on the car

This almost would have been perfect, but the arch is too round and it dosnt fit well on the rear section where it meets with the wheel well

The arch should smooth out at the bottom, but on this panel it is still clearly visible at the bottom

The problem with the rear arch held us up for some time, but we made a decision and hopefully will be able to turn it into reality tomorrow.

Keep in mind, that this is a restoration, modification and improvement. We will try to improve the car as much as possible. I will explain this more tomorrow and show pictures of our ideas.
