Volvo C30 1.6D DRIVe

OBD-II and CAN bus

Adventures with ODB-II and CAN bus.  CAN bus is the protocol, OSI layer 3 construct and OBD-II is the application protocol, possibly layer 5 and up?

Front bumper scrap repair / respray

Having never tried a repair with just a spray can I thought I'd give it a go with a colour match from the car's data sheet. 


Before repair



After repair

I managed to blend the respray so didn't need to spray the entire panel.
