Finding the Volume of a Solid of Revolution

Problem: The region R is bounded by the graphs of x - 2y = 3 and x = y2. Find the integral that gives the volume of the solid obtained by rotating R around the line x = -1.

I'm having a hard time setting up the integral, I think that I have the concept for finding the area of a 2d object using an integral but can't figure out how to take the next step to find volume or how line applies.

Here's what I have so far:
