Wanted - mats, boot cover

Cleaned up the garage and found some parts you want to sell? Or are you looking for that one part? You can advertise or request just about anything that has to do with the Volvo 480 in here: brochures, towing-hooks, antenna's, etc etc...

Wanted - mats, boot cover

Post by dcwalker » Mon Dec 03, 2018 6:51 pm

Seems sensible to ask for the unobtainable, even if you all just laugh at me!

I have started a wanted list for the new toy:

Philips DC942 radio/cd player (as original)
Roller boot cover (I have the mounting brackets but the roller cover itself has disappeared!)
Genuine mats - plastic floor-trays or (far less likely I know) carpet set
Front mud-flaps
Electric aerial in full working order
Bracket for oil pressure sender

If anybody can help with any of these I'd be really appreciative! :D

Many thanks

David

Hi David,

I sent my genuine mats off to a company so that their 480 templates matched those. The ones they sent first from their database were far to small. As most original mats are stiff and manky now, I'd say your best bet is ‎to order from carmats-uk.com. You might have to specifically specify that you wants the set cut to match the ones sent in by me. They were very helpful and communicative.

I am very pleased with the result although the light grey is much ligher than I thought!‎

Unfortunately I'm not with the car until after Christmas and forgot to take pictures.‎

I just looked at their site and the picture still looks like the old ones which were too small are still shown. ‎ They were useless as they just slid about. New ones are perfect and don't move even with the retaining clip not installed yet.

I'd suggest you call to clarify.‎ Abbie and Amy sorted it out, should you need to ask for a knowledgeable person.

Thanks James

Just looked at the site myself...think I'll give them a call as you suggest. Certainly they look like decent quality mats, and if the perfect fit can be obtained then it would be the perfect solution :D

I went for second from top quality because I wanted light grey. That was a mistake but I can't fault the deep pile mats. ‎

Perhaps the graphite grey would be a better bet?

I have mats and boot cover if still interested. They’re the hard plastic mats but original to the car :)

Definitely - yes please :D

I haven't done anything towards the carpet mats yet and, tbh, the hard mats are my preference (I have them in the GT). Does this mean that you have still not sold 361?

Please let me know what you would want for the roller cover and mats. I see you are in Birmingham...we'll have to think about the easiest/cheapest means of getting them across!

Many thanks

Thanks Balto8

Unfortunately they are for a LH drive model, and are different shapes on the front mats to a RH drive model...

Appreciate the thought though!

Removed mats and roller. Also still have roof rack if you’re interested. It’s going to Hoppers in Birmingham should you want to get in touch with them for other bits..
