Volvo 744 XXL stretch limousine kicker https://www.skandix.de/en/news/volvo-744-xxl-stretch-limousine-kicker/2391/
What is the most nonsensical thing you could buy in the time just before Corona? Here are a few choices: Toilet paper, FFP2 masks, flour or an XXL table football table where 8 people can play at the same time, crowded together without any distance between them? Many will now say of course the XXL kicker, but the converted Volvo 744 stretch limousine screamed soooo loudly "PLEASE BUY ME" - we couldn't help but say YES.

The whole story of the conversion to the XXL table football was broadcast in the programme "Abenteuer Leben am Sonntag" on KABEL EINS.
And this is how it all began:

When the owner Bernd visited his sports friend Rudi in his workshop to have his beloved Volvo stretch limousine checked out by him, it immediately became clear that quite a few things needed to be done.

It quickly became clear to him that a complete restoration would be too expensive, but the beautiful 1987 sedan would also be too good to be stripped. But then the mechanic Rudi had an idea!

He suggested converting the limousine completely into a mobile XXL kicker. He succeeded in getting the owner Bernd enthusiastic about his idea. In order not to lose any time, the friends Bernd and Rudi, together with another mechanic, made their way to Harburg in Bavaria, to a professional in table football production. On site, the table football professional took a look at the Volvo to check whether the boys' idea could be realised at all. Since the table football professional had no reservations about the project, the boys went back home or to the workshop. Here Bernd handed over his beloved limousine to the workshop team with complete confidence, to pick it up again after a few days as a finished funmobile.


Now it was a matter of creating as much space for the kicker as was somehow possible. First, the rear two bench seats were removed and the side windows taken out. When the entire interior was gutted, the next step was to flex off the roof to get the desired convertible pick-up. It was important here that the flex edges along the window wells become especially straight so that it would look really neat later on. When the Volvo at least had the right shape and space for the built-in kicker, the workshop team went to the kicker manufacturer once again. On site, the exact measurements for the kicker were taken, it was checked whether the vehicle could withstand the 400 kg kicker weight and then the construction of the kicker was ordered.

In the time that the kicker professional was busy with the construction, the workshop team still took care of a suitable design for the hitherto orange-brown Volvo.

As another highlight, the guys came up with a pull-out multifunctional drawer, which they mounted in such a way that it would later be located under the kicker and could be pulled out towards the rear.

The pull-out drawer was divided into 3 compartments, one serving as a grill, one as a storage compartment for the grill accessories and one for ice cubes to keep beer "cold".

In the meantime, the construction of the kicker was also finished, so that the fun mobile could finally take place the most important part of the work. The kicker has a weight of about 400kg, is 2.53m long and almost as wide as the Volvo itself. Normally, a kicker has 22 game pieces, this one has 88 pieces, so it is as big as four "normal" kickers, just to imagine the whole thing in terms of size. Because the kicker was completely glued into one piece, it had to be placed on the Volvo from above with the help of a crane due to its enormous weight.

Fortunately, no one made a mistake in the measurement at the time and the oversized kicker fit exactly to the millimetre, as calculated, in the place intended for it. Just a few "mini stadium headlights" were installed and after a week of hard work the car could be presented and returned to the owner Bernd. Bernd was amazed how such a conversion could take place in such a short time. The boys quickly put on a football jersey and set off for the first barbecue party with Germany's 1st car kicker. The guests were just as enthusiastic about the outdoor fun mobile. Up to eight people can play at the same time, and those whose turn it is not at the moment can take care of the barbecue next door, so there is no chance of boredom.


After several changes of ownership, the Volvo 744 finally found its new home, where it was technically overhauled during the Corona pandemic. It was also welcomed visually at SKANDIX during that time.

Interior mirror for Volvo 700, 900, S90 V90 (-1998) https://www.skandix.de/en/news/interior-mirror-for-volvo-700-900-s90-v90-1998/2389/
The original interior mirror for the Volvo 700, 900, S90 and V90 series is available.

Due to its age and thermal influences, the interior mirror on these vehicles increasingly has the problem that the film behind the glass becomes detached at the lower edge of the mirror and adhesive residues collect. This leads to a clearly visible, unattractive brownish edge on the lower edge of the mirror glass, which becomes wider and wider over time.

The original interior mirror is still available from us, so you don't have to live with a limited rear-view mirror field or an unattractive view. Last but not least, the mirror is extremely easy to replace, it is only screwed on. The caps of the mirror base are also available as original parts in most colours.

The interior mirror is available in our shop under the number 1043511.

Vehicles:

  • Volvo 740, 760: all models
  • Volvo 940, 960: all models
  • Volvo S90, V90 (-98): all models

Review: 15th Volvo Meeting of the Volvo Stammtisch Schleswig Holstein in Eekholt https://www.skandix.de/en/news/review-15th-volvo-meeting-of-the-volvo-stammtisch-schleswig-holstein-in-eekholt/2399/
The 15th Volvo meeting of the Volvo Stammtisch Schleswig-Holstein exceeded all expectations! After more than 160 cars in 2021, this year we welcomed 172 cars to the car park of the Eekholt Wildlife Park. Among them were eight Saabs, which are always welcome here. Swedes stick together! The meeting has become a fixed date in the calendar of many Volvo enthusiasts in Northern Germany and beyond. Almost all models were represented. But mainly the "historic" 444/544, Duetts, Amazons of all types and numbers.
Also 144, 244/45, 164, P 1800/ES, 480, 740 were very well represented! Not to be left unmentioned was a faithful replica of a Swedish police car. Of course, driver and co-driver appeared stylishly in original police uniforms.






A special highlight was the small special show celebrating the 60th birthday of the Volvo Amazon Kombi Herrgårdsvagn. Six well-maintained P220s were presented and attracted a lot of interest. Thanks to the main sponsor Zeltverleih Sievers from Schmalfeld, a spacious tent - with a complete interior - was erected. This provided a perfect opportunity for catering and sufficient space for interesting technical discussions.
The company SKANDIX presented itself as another sponsor. The blue SKANDIX Beach Flags unerringly showed the visitors the way. The give-aways provided were handed over to the participants by a charming welcoming committee as they entered the grounds.
The Volvo-Stammtisch Schleswig-Holstein would like to thank the sponsors for their great support and the Wildpark Eekholt for giving us the opportunity to hold our event in this setting. Many thanks!

The catering offer in the new ambience was actively used right from the start and offered a rich selection of grilled sausages, fresh coffee, home-baked cakes and various soft drinks. Great praise is due to the barbecue team and the hard-working helpers at the counter! Supplies were ensured and the service was right from the first minute.






Volvo drivers could of course expect an especially obliging service. Parts sales from the boots were also buzzing. Many a long-sought part found a new, happy owner. Unfortunately, our friends from the Kolding Volvo Club could not attend this year, as their own meeting took place the day before. Next year we will surely visit each other's events again.

Many hard-working helpers, also behind the scenes, took care of the good organisation, the set-up, the briefing and thus contributed to a great extent to the success of this event. As a reward for this, the many positive comments from the visitors were gladly received. "We'll be back next year!" was often heard. The Volvo-Stammtisch expresses its thanks and is very pleased that this event is so extraordinarily positively received by all guests and that it has thus probably grown to become one of the largest private Volvo meetings in Germany.

Bulb holder number plate light for Volvo 700 and 900 https://www.skandix.de/en/news/bulb-holder-number-plate-light-for-volvo-700-and-900/2370/
The single lamp holder for the number plate light for Volvo 700 from 1988 and early Volvo 900 is available again.

Unlike the late version of the tailgate handle, the lamp holder for the number plate light was still available for purchase individually from Volvo for the variant installed from 1988 to around 1994. In the later models, it was part of the not exactly inexpensive tailgate handle and therefore much less sustainable - if the bulb holder is broken, the complete handle had to be replaced. But we already have a repair kit for that too (1076902).

This is not the case with this version, the lamp holder is engaged on the handle with two catches and can be easily replaced. Unfortunately, it was dropped by the vehicle manufacturer at the beginning of the year.


Now we already have some repair kits in the shop for this handle and the tailgate, so why not have the number plate light socket, which is now occasionally worn out, remanufactured as well?

After extensive consultation, we decided to have a repair kit produced. After all, the cars from around 1990 are the best from the series and there are still quite a few on the road in everyday use. Of course, it was not completely altruistic, as some of us drive a Volvo 945 or 965 ourselves.

The lamp holder is now available in the shop under the number 1016766.

Fits the following vehicles:

  • Volvo 740, 760 5-door: 1988 model onwards
  • Volvo 940 5-door: all models, chassis no. up to 168722
  • Volvo 960 5-door: model up to 1994

Volvo 940 Pick-Up, 300kg of ice and 100 beers https://www.skandix.de/en/news/volvo-940-pickup-300kg-of-ice-and-100-beers/2383/
"Cool" Volvo 940 PickUp

The fact that Volvo's repertoire of pick-up trucks is relatively, shall we say, "manageable" is certainly not news. Many Volvo fans are probably also aware that this has motivated one or two ambitious mechanics to make some very interesting conversions. Mikaël from the south-west of France shows us a particularly "cool" pick-up transformation.

We cannot say exactly what influence the increasingly warm climate in general or the summer temperatures in southern France in particular had on this project. What is pretty clear, however, is that 29-year-old Mikaël is quite a car fan. This is not least shown by his job at a spare parts supplier for off-roaders. According to his own statement, he has already gained some experience in mechanics and bodywork. We would like to say that this is no exaggeration. Otherwise, it would be difficult to explain how such a conversion could be completed in only 20 days in his spare time.

With the help of his brother and three or four friends, the 1991 Volvo 940 from the junkyard was transformed into this pickup truck with plenty of loading space for lots of ice. This way, the beer stays at a pleasant temperature on pretty much every visit to the beach. Whereby "beer" might be an elementary component of this project. After all, according to Mikaël, the planning discussions have already been supported by a beer or two.

However, Mikaël did not go into this project completely unprepared. He had already bought, repaired and refurbished a 740 Volvo in 2021. However, the Frenchman was infected with the Volvo virus in 2018 when he built his first 940 Turbo Volvo for drifting. The fact that in the following two years four of his friends and his brother could not avoid equipping themselves with drivable Swedish metal should not really come as a surprise to most.


When asked how people react to his ice-cooled 900 pickup on the rides, Mikaël says: "The first reaction is always to ask what model it is". After realising that it is a conversion, most admirers probably wonder why Volvo never built the car like this. Most also agree that this is "probably the coolest idea" they have seen in a long time.

Light switch for classic Volvo until 1972 https://www.skandix.de/en/news/light-switch-for-classic-volvo-until-1972/2363/
The pull switch for parking and driving lights in classic Volvos is available exclusively from SKANDIX.

A suitable switch for the lighting has been an issue for years. New parts have not been available worldwide for decades. Since even halfway usable second-hand parts are hard to find, we have been looking for a solution.

Our switch replaces the original part "plug and play", it has screw connections and can be connected to the existing vehicle harness with the enclosed adapter cable set. Pull knob and screw connection correspond to the originals in the P1800S up to 1969, we had these specially made to fit.
However, it can also be used in Volvo PV, Amazon and 140 up to 1972 without any problems, only the pull knob is then slightly different optically.

Contrary to the original, the terminal designations are engraved in English and are easy to understand. The dimming function for the instrument lighting is of course also available.
The switch has a pre-fuse in the form of a 20A bimetallic circuit breaker at the connection for the battery plus. This fuse may be bypassed or removed completely, as it is already present in the vehicle.

The switch is now available in our shop under the number 1084842.

Fits the following vehicles:

  • Volvo P1800 to 1969
  • Volvo Amazon from 1959
  • Volvo PV544 all
  • Volvo P210 all
  • Volvo 140 to 1972
  • Volvo 164 to 1972

New radiator shutter for Volvo PV and Amazon https://www.skandix.de/en/news/new-radiator-shutter-for-volvo-pv-and-amazon/2362/
New radiator shutter for Volvo Amazon is available again.

The development of cooling systems and heating in automobiles lasts as long as the further development of the car itself, even old ideas are always brought out again with pleasure. This is also the case with the radiator shutter, which is now being used again in many cars as an aerodynamic aid and to reach the optimum engine temperature more quickly.

Not necessarily for the same reasons as in the past, but even then there were economic reasons:

Until the 1980s, the coolant was usually very slow to warm up on cold winter days. The more defensive driving style on slippery roads led to less waste heat. The engine was of course cooled more than enough by the cold air. The rigid radiator fan, forcibly driven by the V-belt, supported this even more superfluously at this time of year.
So it could happen that even after twenty kilometres the heater delivered only a lukewarm breeze. Such operating conditions also increased fuel consumption and wear.

Thus, as early as the 1930s, the first solutions were developed to protect the engine compartment and radiator from increased cooling in winter. There were thermostatic and manual blinds, manual roller blinds or very simple mats to stretch or button on, such as the Wilka radiator protection.

The roller blind, operated by a chain from the interior, was an original Volvo accessory early on and was widely used in Scandinavia, Austria or Switzerland. Vehicles imported from Sweden almost always have such a roller blind or venetian blind, and those from other vehicle manufacturers were also often fitted with them.


Unfortunately, most of them have not survived the last decades in the very best condition and remnants of them often hang around in shreds in front of the radiator. Sometimes there is nothing left at all, but the mounting holes in the front skirt bear witness to the former accessories.

So we took the initiative and had this useful accessory remanufactured. Our remanufactured radiator blind corresponds to the original Volvo accessory and comes complete with holder, chain and ring.

The radiator blind is available now from our shop under the number 1084820.

Fits the following vehicles:

  • Volvo 120, 130, 220
  • Volvo PV444, 544, P445, P210

Holder handbrake cable for Volvo 700, 850, 960, S70, S90, V70, V90, V70XC https://www.skandix.de/en/news/holder-handbrake-cable-for-volvo-700-850-960-s70-s90-v70-v90-v70xc/2357/
The holder for the handbrake cable for Multilink and AWD-Volvo up to 2000 is available again.

The vehicle manufacturer sold out of this extremely important part for the parking brake at the beginning of the year and it should not be reissued.

This holder holds and guides the sheath of the handbrake cable in the steering knuckle. Without it, the handbrake cannot function. Due to age and environmental conditions, these parts are often stuck in the steering knuckle or on the Bowden cables. Often they can no longer be removed without damage or are so tight on the cable that they cannot be used again when replaced.

Considering the number of Volvo 760, 960, S90, V90 or 850AWD and V70AWD still in everyday use, we didn't think twice and ordered a reproduction.




The parts have now arrived, fit beautifully and are now available from our shop at 1050709.
