DeWalt DCF899 impact wrench VS stubborn Volvo S80 Crank Pulley Nut VS Parkside PASSK 20-Li A1

I have been trying to get the crank pulley nut of the vibration damper of my P2 Volvo S80, but have been unsuccessful so far. I tried multiple times with heat, breaker bars, my Parkside PASSK 20-Li A1 impact wrench etc etc.

Decided to invest in a premium brand impact wrench and it has surpassed my expectations! Check my video

Mini Cooper S R53 JCW – Starting a new Project

Last year, we were all affected by the pandemic. But even in such strange times, positive things happen. Like me buying a Mini Cooper S, which I wanted to drive for quite some time. I noticed one in the trim that I wanted and went ahead with it.

Looked even better than on the pictures in the advert & was fitted with extra’s like:

  • Carbon GP bumper inserts
  • Carbon handle
  • Carbon JCW hood scoop
  • Carbon Mini R56 spoiler
  • Chrono pack interior
  • LED Angel Eyes
  • LED amber indicators
  • Dechromed exterior trim
  • MSD Coilpack & HT leads
  • 17″ R113 Black / Chrome wheels

A lot of work already has been done, this will be documented as well. Stay tuned 🙂

Thanks to my buddy Joost Evers of Hobbygarage Evers for helping me out!

Volvo S80 2.4T Black Interior Trim

Found a second hand black trim set for the interior, which will replace the “old man” wooden look trimpieces. I started with the upper 2 pieces and will be replacing all bits somewhere this weekend.

It looks way better and more modern.
