    Installation looks to be a relatively easy DIY job and instructions can be found in the following link:

    I've contacted the Perth Volvo dealership (200kms from me) and they quoted me $431.15 inc tax (10% in Australia ) for the mounting kit that comes with the bracket and wiring harness.

    Default Randy Ellis Designs

    Yes. I determined that Randy had received contact from two folks at Sanderson Volvo.
    I also determined that the Shop Foreman forgot to follow through and that the Parts Manager was completely out of the loop, thinking the former had acted on his claim.

    I'm in hopes that we'll see some action...

    The Volvo light bar sells here in Australia for $475 with wiring harness adaptor.

    I did spot an alloy light bar that screws into the licence plate holes at a local discount auto parts place this morning when I was look for some light for my next project car. It's an MB SLC Rally copy. It's going to look like something like this but with only two Cibie Super Oscars up front.

    I've decided to keep my VXC70, do another project car and get a Hobie Adventure Island Kayak. So the Volvo can still tow my existing boat and carry the kayak. Must be time for some serious IPD mods then.

    Pic 1 is original 450SLC rally car circa 1980
    Pic 2 is Project car as is now
    Pic 3 Hobie sailing kayak that you paddle, pedal or sail

    Maybe because the photo is of an East African rally. Or is it something else.
