It is! More fun, I am certain that r&r the whole thing is out. Too much work. Plus the replacement part is rusty. Some patching my patch? LOL.
Thinking about cutting at the tape, partly to cut off rusty bits and partly because I want it smaller and separating the rear panel from the quarter looks to be a real pain.

I have a friend who runs a Metal Shaping website that has offered to pull the 1/4 and make it an event for his website (local Seattle area) but its such late notice I will be surprised if many show up. Never heard of a Dozer before this week and turns out 2 friends own them.
http://www.blackhawkbmt.com/Products...g-System/Dozer.
My hope is I wont have to use any of the 1/4 I bought but I am glad I have it (for now)
This coming Saturday if anybody wants to come see. (PM me) I'll post pics of how it goes.

A Mo clamp with a puller with hook will also be handy.

Good luck with the pull.

I did a whole quarter on my 244, I ruined the paint, but the body work came out perfect.
And I did the whole quarter.

Great thread! Thanks for sharing that. Did you get a chance to repaint it?

Thats the plan for this winter. I've moved to a bigger garage so I've actually got room to play with it, so hopefully body work this winter and paint in the spring.

I'd be lying if I told you I didn't drag a car with chains to pull a panel out. My ex-father in-law show me on a tree once, got to love back yard fixes. Looks like you are off to a good start though. You can come do my wagon when your done with your car, its already stripped down and ready for repairs/paint, lol!

Old Iron, I don't think you would like my pace. LOL

I've been looking at the trim clips and at the BSM at wondering the best way to release it.
I'm afraid mine might be on tighter due to it being twisted in the accident. I want to try my hand at saving it. (good luck finding another) It looks like the old push up, pull back type.
Is that correct?

And..... while I am collecting knowledge, ideas for a replacement muffler? Not at all interested in the rice burner loud exhaust but am interested in a sporty tone.
Thanks in advance!

Could always do the usual 240 turbo exhaust with an adapter where the resonator is mounted, a la iPd sport exhaust. It's a bit louder, but not obnoxious.

I would get a thin blade putty knife under the bottom portion of the trim and lift up. The clips will break, they should be rock hard by now. You can always try pouring very hot water on the trim to try and soften the clips but I think they are available new. Maybe these https://www.ebay.com/itm/Volvo-NOS-B...S!-1:rk:2:pf:0
Also didn't RWC have skinny trim for sale?

Damnit Nelson pay attention in class!

78 is the last year of the early trunk and early trim.

Yes, but I have only owned 79,80 and 81s. I only remembered that you had some "skinny" trim for sale and not the detail of it being just stainless. Can't keep track of everyones stuff.

Looks like they got the DL SS trim a year early with unique to that car rear quarter panel sticks.

Trim came off nicely. Not use to that. Oddly straight. Might just work out. If I don't wreck it.
Thanks for the exhaust info!

....and hair dryer works well to heat things up without worrying about paint-blistering-plastic-melting heat that heat guns are capable of.

Round one went well. I'm happy. Possibly round two tomorrow.
