Our Malaysia ex Police Riot squad Volvo started its restoration stage 2 process. Stage 3 will follow stage 2 (restoration of the rear).
THis is a 1979 Volvo C304 (4x4 not 6x6). Stock everything apart from the REAR cabin which the previous owner removed the open top police canvas canopy and lowered it and installed a HARDTOP.
I am still trying to find out the history of the vehicle while it spent 25 years in the police force.
It's now in a secret location in PERAK where aliens are working on it.
1. Rust removal in the front of the cabin
2. Headlight upgrade and
3. LED lights installation
4. Raise floor for short legged people
5. the rest you will have to wait and see - but restoration work pics will be shown - I will see it in 2-3 months time. NOt sure even of the STage 2 colour result as not sure how they are going to paint the cabin before we restore the rear.
Sunday Nite at the workshop and the rust is revealed
3 months I cannot wait.
I am now at the point of starting to finish the interior of the cabin. I am planning to use Soundproofing inside the cabin then a final cover of green canvas glued to 6mm marine with quality quick release clips to enable the panels to be removed. do you guys also use anything else for keeping the heat or the cold (haha cold in a tropical country) out or will a soundproofing layer suffice?
