Installation of Radian 80 on an older Volvo?

I have a 92 Volvo 740 GL.

My girls are ages-
6.5- 40lbs In a Britax Parkway (outboard passenger side)
4.5- 35lbs In a Britax Marathon (outbaard Driver side)
2.5- 32lbs In a FPSE (middle seat)

All are FF

My car does not have LATCH, but I have installed tether bolts.
The 2 outboard seats have shoulder/lap belt combo's. The middle seat is lap-belt only.

I want my oldest to go back into a 5pt and have determined that the Radian will be the best fit (dimension-wise) for my car.

My plan is to move my 2yo into the Marathon and purchase 2 Radian 80's for the older girls.

My question in the longest possible way Is:

Has anyone been able to install the Radian 80's somewhat easily into an older Volvo Sedan?

And what have your experiences been installing this seat?
TIA!

Just wanted to say good luck. We have a Radian 65 installed in our 2000 Mazda Protege, and it took some work!

They're great car seats, super price, but the install is tricky on some vehicles. Hope it works well for you!

I just noticed the following link on another thread--maybe it will be helpful to you as well. You can select the make/model/year of your car and get info on different carseats.
