Just fitted the 'folding' boot floor unit that I had ordered from my parts contact at a local dealer, so I can keep the old groceries etc from falling over.
For those interested, the Part Number is :- V31484758 at the discounted price of £225.45 +vat, not cheap I hear you say, but its way cheaper than the price of the 'convenience pack' if, like me, you don`t want/need all the other gubbins! (I quite like my 'aerobic' tailgate anyway ;) )

Prior to having the car paintwork ceramic coated and the wheels/trim sealed/protected next Wednesday, I thought I would carry out the Rear Detailing work I had pre-planned. If I say so myself.........works great, especially on White, lighter greys and red in the R-design Livery. Prob. not to every ones taste, but I love it :D

Thanks Flatman5 . they are 8-) This seems to quite a trending thing, at the moment, especially within the Luxury vehicle market ie. Porsche, Mercedes, JLR and nearly all of the VAG group, to name but a few and that`s not counting the various owners who pay good money to have their cars 'de-badged' all together! Could VOLVO have missed an additional sales opportunity here? I would have paid extra to have piano-black 'emblems' (got told off for calling them lettering by dealer parts dept...LoL) fitted from the factory.

Can I just ask how you did that as I think it looks great! I was going to see if I could get some of the badges deleted but rather do this if I can.

Thanks.

Sorry Azza_86, I`m not ignoring you, but, it looks like I`ve just wasted 2hrs+ of my time, writing you a 'How-To' for making the Black Lettering/Emblems, amounting to about half of an A4 sheet in total! :x Wrote it out, checked it, hit 'preview' and was sent back to the forum log-in page?? WHY?? So Logged in again, and 'poooof' the whole lot has vanished! So seriously "p****d off at the moment! :evil: You try and be helpful.....

I`ll try again, as and when I calm down and have the time etc.

K1t that must be the most annoying thing ever! Don't worry about it, you've got until at least November before I get my car so you've got a little while to calm down and write it again!
