Hello:<p>I'm sooooooooo <I>close</I> to getting my 1988 245's interior where I want it- can anyone help with the remaining few bits? Here's what I'm looking for; I need only one each unless otherwise specified:<p>1- High-mount brake light cover for a wagon. This is the interior plastic piece that covers the high-mount brake light on the inside of the tailgate glass. I need black, though I don't think they came in other colours.<p>2- Door post trim for the passenger side. This is the plastic piece that trims the interior side of the door post; there is a slot in it for the seat belt to pass through to the retractor mechanism. I need blue.<p>3- Seat belt swivel covers. These are the little plastic covers that cover up the bolt head on the seat belt's shoulder swivel. Need all four of these, in blue. (NOTE: These are different on different years; my car is a 1988. Also, the rear ones in a sedan do not fit the wagon. Been there, tried that.).<p>4- Lock button collar, in blue. This is the little plastic piece that trims the hole where the lock button passes through the door panel.<p>5- Rear floor tray, in blue. This is the optional floor tray mat you could buy from a Volvo dealer, with the Volvo logo on it. I have three of my car's originals, but one rear tray is missing. <B>PART FOUND THROUGH THIS LISTING- NO LONGER LOOKING FOR THIS ONE. THANKS, SWEDESPEED AND MAXBRIX! STILL LOOKING FOR ALL OTHERS.</B><p>6- Seat skin for front seat (I do not need the backrest skin), in blue. The skin is interchangeable from left to right, so I can use one off a passenger or driver's seat. I'm looking for one with no cracks, cuts, tears, or other damage.<p>Thanks for looking, and if you have any of these pieces, please feel free to mail me direct at [email protected] <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><br><i>Modified by danemodsandy at 4:44 PM 5-22-2006</i><BR><BR>

Re: WTB: 245 Interior Trim Bits (volvo_guy)

Hi:<p>I'm in the Atlanta area, where the turnover of cars in salvage yards is fast. It's not easy to find good vintage cars or parts here. This city has a huge lower-income population; most cars that are five or six years old end up getting sold to them at buy-here-pay-here used car lots. The car then gets trashed, because a lot of those owners don't know how to maintain a car and couldn't afford to if they did- all they can come up with is their payments. I can't tell you how many sad-looking older Volvos, Mercedes, BMW's, Cadillacs, and Lincolns this city has. By the time those folks junk a car, there's not a hell of a lot left. I've seen a Bertone here with K-Mart seat covers and primer on the roof where the vinyl used to be.<p>Thank God for eBay and boards like this!
