I recently gathered from Jim (jpliddy) that P505DEF knows a thing or two about D24's and ironically he's in Stroud.... See link below...

Monkeh (also on this forum) might also be able to help as he's done a head change on a 760 but he's in Newport (South Wales)

What about a full respray of a volvo, Has anyone done one, what is cost.
The paint work on car is poor, it's really rough to the touch, like sand paper parts of it..
Never seen paint go like that before, as it's original paint. It so needs a full respray.

To get a decent paint job, you'll be looking at into 4 figures for a full respray. You might be able to find cheaper, but it won't be long-lasting.
