Very nice conversion, do not see many P1800 Volvos in racing trim. the colour looks good with them decals.

NICE, thanks for showing. I have driven in one but not in the races. Mountaing rally, Nice car and handles rough but very driveable.

Resurrecting this thread to say nice job, you really improved this model. I just bought one and I'm not particularly impressed with it so am going to detail it. How did you get the wheels off? I can't see how they come off.

Thanks


Wheels are pop out, you need to wedge two small screw drivers between 


the back side of the wheel and push it outward till it pops out,


I hope this helps.


Good luck

Great, thanks! I notice on yours that they actually bothered to tampo-in the chrome on top of the fin. On my later issue they did not, which is quite annoying as it's such a noticeable feature of the real car. Your bonnet also seems to not be bent in the middle, unlike mine!

it's not even chrome, all you need is silver marker, do you have picture of yours posted?

So you did use a silver marker for the trims of the sides and top of the fins?


Did you mask the sides before applying the trims or do you have a very steady hand?

No mine was already painted silver, but sometimes I use the marker to paint around the windshields, it's not hard to do it and you dont need to mask it since it is easy to clean if it gets messy, just have a Q tip dipped in thinner ready

No, I haven't posted pictures yet. Mine is black with red interior. It has different number plates too. I will take some pics.
