Well, the -72 Estate is in need of overhaulin, due to a parking accident, will need some work on heads and the airridesystem, so this winter we will ride a -92 RMW instead.. Just cut the springs, mufflers and som better looking wheels, and it will be just fine for us..

The tires are actually 235/75-15, but they are al least one inch higher than the summer tires in same dimension. They dont rub, but it feels like i`m driving on bare metal cause they are so wide and rigid. I have a set of 215/70-15 on Mangles alloy wheels to replace them. I also have been noticed that my diamond clear front lights, and HID converts is in sweden now and can be picked up next week!

Thanks everybody! The shep is a Female namned `Liten` thats `Tiny` translated :-) As for the wood delete, it doesent look that bad on pictures, but irl its hiddious. I hate it, and will go for a all black paintjob very soon. My new girfriend suggest that i paint it semi-gloss black, but i kind of like my cars shiny, so. We will see about that.

Sorry to hear about your loss, Jeff. I bet you miss your Nicki still. You have beautiful sheps in US, i think. There is a significant difference between the US, and German - bred , shepherds.

There are actually a few hours between the two pictures.. The icetires are gone, finally! Just hope that we dont catch a blizzard the next weeks.. The weather up here is a little bit unsteady this time of year.. As for the pup on the hood, i will repaint it, i am thinking of gloss black on all the horizontal surfaces, and a GS - SS style stripe in gold along the hood, roof and trunk lid.. Any input on that maybe? The mirrors are still in the paintshop, i kind of forgot them Embarassed

The original 4x6" front speakers did not really up to my standards.. Went and got me a set of BOSE 6" with external tweeters.. The improvement is awesome.. I love them!

Templated and waiting to get cut


Filled the gap around the speakers with sheetmetal and a good amount of silicone sealant.

Thanks! Its the swedish wagontrain Rolling Eyes  The picture shows my sons (22yo) -72 Estate that i got him for christmas outside the safety/emission station. In sweden you have to take the test every 2 year for cars 30 years or older.. Newer cars has to do it annualy... The estate didnt pass :-(  They had issues about the air suspension..

I also deleted the wood on the instrument panel, and changed the old cassette deck/radio for a 2Din Unit that plays cd, aux and usb.. Comfy, comfy...

I think it's neat because it's something different.

I like different.
