List of bits wanted (if anyone is breaking):

Original Double DIN radio mounting brackets.

*All* the dash fascia trim panels back to the arm rest, intact & preferably walnut, but anything considered - cos it's nasty.

Both rear bumper reflectors.

Top mounting bolt cover, middle seat belt (creamy beige colour).

Black plastic liner/inside window frame for middle roof window passenger door side.

Boot latch cover (with Largo written on it).

Spare 8mm bolts for engine cover.

Front passenger footwell carpet.

...and then it'll be perfect ;)

Yes carole, you wouldn't believe the amount of butchery to install one cheap single DIN CD player (now consigned to the bin). No pride at all, I've cut the wires right back to the original loom and re-done the lot, tidily, back to an ISO connector.

My double DIN has camera inputs too - only ever had a rear/reversing camera before now, but there's a thought: Front too?

I have the one that clips onto the interior mirror, looks just like a mirror but with a camera in it.
easy to fit , longest job was putting the wires through the roof lining.
I will check the bits you want in the morning and let you know Johnny.

That sounds interesting - I'm off to look on ebay :D

Not sure what to do with a reversing camera. I put one on the previous interim Volvo that I had for 12 months. It fit under the boot latch which was just a push in type - not so with the Largo. I'd not bothered with one before, but the Mrs likes them - I've put one on a couple of her cars - Her FTO was quite stunning, but with the big high boot and spoiler, it was actually quite blind at the back.

Thanks carole.

Hi again Johnny, what I did with my rear camera was I took all the grab handles off on the o/s ,took the 2 push studs out of the rear side trim,then if you pull the roof trim towards you it comes off,the roof lining then drops down .

the font I took the sun visor off , the side trim that goes down the side of the window pulls out enough for you to put the wire up into the roof lining along to the back, no wires hanging around (I hate seeing wires), the only ones that you can see are the ones that go into the top of the mirror and a small amount at the back for the camera,bit fiddly Johnny but well worth it, I will try to get some pictures for you later if you wish.

Yes please, buddy.

I had a look at front mirror cameras today and well... plenty of grist for the mill there.

That first pic, with the buttons along the bottom of the mirror - the gadget replaces the mirror? Or fits over it somehow?

the camera is in the back of the mirror so it just fit over the top of your interior mirror with 2 rubber clips very easy to fit.
I have all the bits that you want,the radio fitment is it the double one you want or the single one? I have one with the tray under it or the big one
