    Hi guys, So I am new to Saab Scene, and I want to offer something back for all the help some of you guys have offered me so I thought I'd share the up and coming work my car is getting. Over the next 3 weeks. It's quite a list ! Here it is: - Complete wing mirror sections and 4 x door handles...

  5. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Can anyone recommend anywhere that can clean and restore a dark blue 2001 9-3 convertible hood? I've looked into doing it myself but would prefer to get it done professionally, depending on cost. I'm based in south east London and the closest place I can find is in Chelmsford. I was hoping...

    Last year I brought Peter W’s work to your attention, work that involves the restoration of a very special Saab 900. Saab made a small number of what I guess you could call Aero prototypes in pearl white paint back in 1984. When Peter found one for sale in late 2006, he snapped it up and...

    Time to knock the Turbo X off the front page, just for a day Our mate in Europe, WooDz, recently picked up a rare UK spec Saab 9-3 Viggen at a fairly good price, a bit lower than usual, actually. That was partly due to the state it was in. Many would pass it by, but WooDz explains his...

    The 1992 Saab 900 3-door 5-speed Turbo that I rescued this past December will be commencing its much needed servicing and repairs in the next week. Since I bought the Saab and drove it up from from the urban jungle of Washington, D.C. to rural New England back then, thanks again to Sports Car...

    A few weeks ago I was cruising around the blogoshere when I stumbled over an article where a guy had bought a 1994 Saab 900 Commemorative Edition in the US. The guy’s name was Dave LaChance and he’s a writer for Hemmings. If you’re not familiar with Hemmings, they deal with collectors cars...

    You might remember the story of Peter W in Sweden, who recently picked up one of the uber-rare pearl white 900 Aeros for restoration. I covered the first part of his story here. This is definitely a story worth following, especially if you’re thinking of attending the Saab Festival in 2009 as...

    After spending a little time wading through all this stuff, I'm inclined to rename Dmitry P as "the bus driver". Why? He's about to take us all to school! Dmitry recently restored a 1995 Saab 900 Convertible and he's kept a log on the process. A very detailed log. I'll let him start...

  16. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    I've updated my Saab C900 front-end repair/restoration/enhancement page with a lot more pictures and descriptions of later stages of the project. Apart from one possible extension of the project to replace the radiator and the entire 'upper member' section of the front of the car to get rid of...
  17. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    Hi Is there an economical DIY method to polishing up my 16" inner rims? I resent taking them to an alloy restorer and forking out loads of notes for something I'm sure I could do myself.. During the winter months condensation gets under the lacquer and spoils them leaving white patches and a...
  18. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I am the proud new owner of a 1991 9000 SE 2.3. The car is in perfect condition inside. There is the beginning of some rust around the bumpers behind the rear tyres and at the bottom of the driver door. Has anyone had experience of 'restoring' their 9000? I am not very technically competent...
