  1. So, I want to restore a Volvo 940(2.3i turbo) slam a better suspension, rims and some other tiny extras. But I wanted to know if the mechanical problems on this engines are pricey or are "affordable" and also if updating the turbo will become a problem on my wallet or not xd
  2. I have recently bought a 46 Plymouth coupe and started restoring it. I just have a few question for anyone who has been doing this for a long time and would be interested in helping. Anything is appreciated First off I've already taken the trunk off and its in primer but the hinges are still attached and The springs are under a lot of tension. Im new to this as this is my first car and how can I get the hinges off without damaging them, the springs, or myself? Im still in the process of taking all the insulation and sound deadening foam off if the interior. So far I've used a mallet and putty knife with a blow torch on and off for 8+ hours. But i still have a decent amount of the trunk left to scrape clean are there any easier and smarter ways to get the foam off? (I live in arizona so that doesn't help my case with this situation) not really a question about the car but does anyone have a 46-47 plymouth coupe grill core suport they are looking to sell thats in good condition?(Please contact me with any valid offers at 0123yakob@gmail.com)

  4. Hi all, I am new to this forum and to cars in general. I plan to buy a slightly older car (something between 1980 and 2000) to initially use to learn about repairing cars. The long term goal is to try to restore/improve if possible. So I need something that has the flexibility to potentially go crazy with. For example I really like the 1980s model of the BMW 5-series, but i don't know if this is the right car to use for such a project. Hopefully this will spark some discussion and provide me with a good starting point. Regards, JK7070
