    The seat is just folded down, because I needed to put my tool box there. That 37 takes up alot of space:eek: That's also why I got those old 20mm ammo boxes to mount over the wheel wells. Then I can everything in them.;)

    I thought you were making room for a car seat! If you need any help with a car seat install, I have been specially trained in the installation. I even have a ID card for that.

    now you tell me!:banghead:

    ok one question about that, the seat should be in the center , but the car seat hooks are only on the outboard seats in both Volvo and 150, I have the volvo seat centered but ancored to the ancor point for the two outer seats as there are none for the center:confused: is this a no-no? because the 150 book said it was? and if so why?

    thanks Brian

    Yes, it is a no-no, because the anchor points are designed to work in a pair, not two halves, like you have it set up. Besides, they are not in the right position like that, and the center seat is not designed for the anchor points to be used. I would just go with a outboard seat and the anchors, or the center seat with the belt. If you pull the seat belt out all the way until it stops, then let it in slightly, you will notice it locks. Just feed the belt through the slots on the car seat, then put your knee in the middle of the seat with all your weight while slowly letting the belt retract. It should lock up good. Car seats can move about one inch at the belt path and still be secure.

    cool, yeah I noticed it was still a little floppy in the front, but I'll fix it and make sure it's tight. I still don't get why they didn't put ancors in all 3 seats:confused: I guess because they figured people would mix them up. Well at least I know the base in the 150 is right. Thanks Brian;)

    They only have two because DOT only requires two.

    they said it takes 8-12 weeks:rolleyes: then I have to make a appoitment to pick it up, and trasfer the info to the plate.


    When you order a plate it's not registered to a car yet. You could just pay the fees every year and hang it on your wall:thumbdwn::rolleyes:

    She said it's closer to 3 1/2 months:thumbdwn:

    8 weeks= Black text
    12 weeks= Black+Red text


    you order them
    order goes to sacremento
    then goes to prison
    prisoner makes it, and steels scrap metal to cut his roomates throat.
    need to keep your plate for evidance
    some other prisoner kills him, so more investigation

    plate gets sent back to sacremento
    plate then gets sent to your local DMV
    You make a DMV apponiment to go pick it up
    and if you rembered to take your old plate with you, you get to have them:p:
