How come I didn't see this message when it came in!  I'm beginning to learn car modelling and I'm not ready yet, but this one would be interesting to make!

Cool, i have fond memories of the car.
My father's company had a deal with volvo so we had most models in the number series (440,460,640,760 and 860)

It is also easy to make a version of the dash with the stunts colorpallet with photoshop, if needed i can whip it up for you in 5 minutes :D

It would be necessary to have the dash and also the gear handle and base. In the picture there, the dash is being looked to directly, a little bit down. Probably it would have to be clipped at some point down. Compare with other cars. For the gear handle and base, they have to look top down. See the proportions with other cars in Stunts :)  I'm still working in having CarWorks include the 2D part of the car and configure it.

I'd say it's exactly the right perspective  ;)

Well, yes. It does look good. About the gear box, that's a simpler part, maybe it can be drawn from scratch if one from top is not found. One thing I'm not sure what to do about is the fact that Stunts cars usually have the steering wheel centred in the panel, but actual panels have it to one side. Putting it to one side will work, but Stunts will still render everything centred so one would get the feeling of seating on the gear stick XD  I've been thinking that maybe the best is to clip the panels so that the steering wheel is only a bit off-centre and to the left, but not too much. What do you think?

I have now problem with the fact that the perspective is a little off. I'm used to it.
(Have a hard time adjusting in game's that do correct perspective like 'driver San Francisco')

But keeping the steering wheel close to center makes it all a bit bigger and more detailed. That could be nice.

I'm making a few tests with another car and if it all works well, I can continue with the Volvo dash :)
