Hello, my name is Mats and I live in Sweden. I have started a build together with my 13 year old son.
The build will be based on the Haynes chassis but with a different type of bodywork.
Power train will be a five cylinder from a 1994 Volvo 850 GLT coupled to an M90 gearbox from a Volvo 960, sierra rear diff and front and rear
suspension. About a month ago I bought the donor Volvo and stripped the engine and electrical harness from it.
Last week I got all the 25x25x2 tubing and the frame build started friday the 26th of April
This is what we are trying to recreate but with a body in unpainted aluminium.
Bottom frame layed out.
Got to borrow a nice cutter from work that works awsome, so easy to make nice cuts.
No the roll bar is for the little white car that shows its butt in one of the pictures. Creating the body will be the big challenge in this build.
Ah yes the 360, a friend of mine has had a few as winter beaters, dual alternators and 7 Bosch Big knick floodlights in the front. You could see him
coming for miles...
Moved the frame to my work with a bit more space and nicer equipment than I can afford at home.
Started to fully weld the frame yesterday, about 8-9 hours done so far and there's a fair bit left to do.
