I have a 1985 240 GLE with the nice black tape along the top of the door where the window starts. My tape is all cracked and crazed and looks terrible. My questions are:
Is there replacement tape available?
How hard is it to replace?
What is the best way to remove the old tape?
I would also find the answer useful.
VP tunning ,if you joined the volvo club of Victoria you would know what parts you can get,also he does the bar tape red and white,early and late,also for 740 and 940 front and rear bars jumpon the volvoclub website and follow the links
Yeah! Join the club ya freeloaders!!!
Gee , wonder if my sub is up to date .
I better join the club....
Still the cheapest car club out there, and we don't ask for RWC for club cars until VIC roads change there rules ;;)
It seems that we're going on a tangent here, but from the outside, it doesn't seem to be a need to join a Volvo club if you aren't wanting club rego?
Unless you are a freeloader. ..
I was , never went to club meets.
this is true as
long as your in an owners club but you need to be a member of club you cant walk in to VIC roads.
And my point been they have been for sale in the club for a few years
Any restriction to membership if you don't live in Victoria?
no issues, mags sent in the post, dyno days etc drives etc discounts at Volvo specialists in Victoria when showing your member ship card and at Volvo, so why not join! apart from joining the old farts group :D
What do you get when showing your card at Volvo?
Haha I'm not to sure about Volvo, Something non sectual I hope =)) jks lol, I'm not sure with the whole card thing but I think it's a discount, I may be wrong though

A smack in the teeth lol.
We repainted the area where the black tape was, it was the easiest option. I don't believe Mark at VPT has replacement tape for under the window, just the tape for bumper bars. I *think* the OEM tape is hellishly expensive, I think Mark Hoffmann bought some years ago.
Edit: Is there anything eBay can't do?
