Volvo lip looks wrong on a Volvo, lol. I like the 740 air dam, but looks odd with another lip stuck on there.

'88 240DL with a b230f and 5 speed. Nothing special, but probably the most reliable car we've ever owned. My Wife's parents bought it new. We also owned a 1st gen s60 2.4t and that car was a complete POS in every way.

awesome. the 240 is the best volvo ever made in my opinion. and ever since ford bought Volvo in 1999 they started going downhill fast. but now China bought them from ford so we'll see what comes down the pipeline next...

Excellent first post! IMO you need to pull the edges of the lip in with zip ties, otherwise looks great. Pics of the rest of the car? Looks clean.

Thanks! I've heard of people pulling the edges of the lip in with the zip ties. Is it as easy as pulling on the bottom corner? Not exactly sure where I'd attach the ties though. I actually don't have many pictures. I'll post some in the morning when its light out and I can take some crappy iPhone photos.
