    Ok I have good news and bad news. The bad news is the sedan will come later as a separate mod due to mesh problems. The good news is the wagon is ready to go in game. I just need someone to help with the jbeam.

    Looking good! Unfortunately, I won't be able to help much with the jbeam as I have no knowledge on that subject. Good luck though!

    The Volvo needs a live axle in the rear though and the etki has independent rear suspension so the etki drivetrain wont work. That's only if you want it to be completely accurate though.

    it's not that hard to swap out a suspension jbeam though. delete the independent mounting nodes (and theire beams/triangles) from the shell, get a suitable solid axle (grand marshal maybe? and copy its mount nodes over to the I series shell, and move them to line up with the wheelbase (if necessary).

    That would great! Could you try and take pictures of the lights and interior for textures. Also some exterior shots would be great. What kind of engine does yours have?
