Looks pretty nice to drive this Volvo on the roads. thumpsup. It got a bit scary to see someone drive on the left side Grin. I think we here in Sweden switched from Left to right side driving on the 60´s.
Anyway this project is going to be so fun to follow

Headlight Frame restoration.

The Headlight frame had some surface rust when removed and did some tidy up. The beam adjust screw was buggered and got new ones but the tab that receives it is loose. I may have to just use cable tie to secure it. Some pic below

Interior Floor & Boot section

Inspected the interior floor , trunk cleaned where necessary and plan on what is needed . The floor is not rusted but the old 42 year old vibration , sound and carpet insulation layer was crumbling. Also had some coolant leak on the passenger side. Removed all the carpet and tided it up and will put it back it once painting is done. The carpet was faded but not too worn so I will reuse it to keep some period look.. Some pic of what was done.
