Successfully got 3 across tonight! *pics added*

PICS UPDATE: After using it for a couple days, I have only one complaint...it is hard to get the infant seat out of the base, and to click in. You have to be super careful it attaches on the Radian side, and getting it out is a total PITA. DD2 may be going into a convertible sooner than I originally planned because the seat gets stuck in the base EVERY.SINGLE.TIME.









I know I'm a geek, but I am excited because I got 3 across in DH's car tonight all by myself. We have an Onboard 35, Radian XTSL FFing in the middle, and Maestro on the outside. I wanted to do Onboard, Maestro, RFing XTSL, and there was no freaking way it was going to work with the bolsters in DH's Accord.

My mom has my other XTSL in her car, and I may try to swap out the Maestro for another Radian in hopes I can get a decent RFing install, but there wasn't too much room to play around. I hadn't played with a Maestro before, but I kinda like it. It is no frills, but really light and will make a great travel seat.

I got the Maestro today from Amazon, and the DOM was 7/28/11. I am super pumped about that.

If you get a good rf install with radian in the accord post details! I wasn't able to do it. The bight(is that right?) of the seat is much higher than the deepest part of the seat. I'm not a tech though... so I bet someone else could do better than me. I sold mine and bought RA55 instead. But I DO love the radian ff in the accord.

I managed to get one with latch before, but not the seatbelt. Sadly, latch just isn't going to work with 3 across.

Nope, not with the crazy way the latch hooks are placed so far towards the center.

Apparently Honda assumes that everyone has 2 kids.
