I mounted this cute little amp to an mdf board that i had cut to the correct size for mounting in the trunk where the oem junk used to live.

Lots of cables and stuff, im just steering clear of all that and routing new leads. Im keeping the speaker wiring though to save some time and headache.

It's amazing how small amps have gotten over the years. My uncle was just telling me how he got one for his Silverado that's barely bigger than an iPhone. It's crazy!

Happen to know that part number? I think I have ONE that still is alive, squeaks like a spawn of satan...

Never mind, found it. I should have searched a bit harder, but was being lazy... Apparently it is 4 each of 9145885 and 4 each of 9143678 (the latter I cannot find...)
Got all of them from FCP. 4 of these https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... 70-9145885 and 4 of these, plus a couple extra because I needed to replace the ones on the top piece. https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo- ... 70-9132876

Looks like the first PN was right, but the smaller clips are 9132876.
Thank you Sir!

The S70 has a handy spot for mounting a camera.
I did have one of those rear view mirror screens plugged in, but they made me remove it for the six monthly warrant of fitness check as it could ‘Become a loose hazard in an accident”
If loose material is flying around the cabin in an accident, I’ve got more worries than the mirror ...

That camera looks pretty nice, good size and easy to fit. The one i had laying around (e-sky) is a bit bulky. Almost blocks access to the boot opener switch. Easy to swap out if i get tired of it though, its the cable routing thats kind of annoying.

Oh and what is a "fitness check"?

There's gotta be a better way to mount a screen for that... I still feel like most people have more to worry about than a mirror flying around their cabin!
