Default Volvo Amazon with drivetrain from bmw 540

About one and a half year ago i got an old p132 as a gift from my old man (it was a serious rust bucket). At fist the plan was to do an restoration, but that plan was thrown out when we saw just how bad the rust was. Then we remembered that we had an old drivetrain from a e39 540ia BMW laying arround. Aftter some beers we decided to give it a shot. Here is a video and some pictures of how it looked when we got it:

And here is a picture of how it looks now:

I'll post more if there is interest, otherwise the project is documented in swedish here: https://www.garaget.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=330266
And in english on my youtube channel:
