Hi and welcome.

Thanks for the pic - looks good!

If your Zed's going to sleep outside then I can understand the hard top quest. Mine is lucky enough to sleep in a garage most of the time, which means I get the roof down every weekend that it's not pi$$ing down.

Either way, enjoy. :driving:

Oh, and meant to mention I have had two Volvo estates. Both 850s - a 2.0l and a 2.5l - both great cars - fast, comfortable and great load carriers.
I was fortunate enough to have an 850R many moons ago. A lovely drive.

Hi and welcome :)

Any plans other than the hardtop?
I'm not sure. It's in a really original state so not looking to do too much. The cup holders are gone (if they ever existed) so I may do some cup holder or net type thing on the inside. Early days though. I kinda like that it's such a clean car.

Welcome to the forum - buying on a whim while you can still get in and out seems to ring a bell! :lol:

And you bought a 3.0i - now just enjoy! :thumbsup:

I see there's a common theme. :lol:

They were never standard, not even on an ///M

I only do OEM mods or reversible ones. Some bigger wheels would look good though, daisies are a bit on the small side :wink:

I had thought about some 18" alloys...

Welcome to the forum Flake, I fitted 18" 107's alloys which really suit the early Zed. Stuartt has a hard top for sale, which will suit your car.
I also had 2 Volvo estates, 940 2.0 and an 850 2.5 TDI, solid cars.
You will have to join us when we have the next meet up at the AV8 cafe on Kemble airfield.

That's only down the road from me as it goes.
Will have a look at Stuart's hard top. Thanks!
