1979 Beta Coupe


« on: November 03, 2015, 08:09:07 PM »

Hello again!  I am hoping some of you fine folk have experience and pictures with installing a three point seat belt in the back of a Coupe.  My 79 has lap belts only, and I have sourced good aftermarket "universal" seat belts.  I am hoping to get some lessons learned from anyone that has already done this.  Biggest two questions are:

Ideal top mounting position for the shoulder "hook" and ideal mounting location for the retractor down near the floor. 

Thanks!

All the anchor points are there (factory drilled and threaded) , you just need to uncover them and remove any grommets filling the holes.

Your fitting bolts will obviously need to be a matching thread. If the thread has gone on the lower points it's possible to fit retaining nuts via the rear wheel arch/under the car.

 We got Wesco top mount retractor rear shoulder belts in!  A bit of fabbing for a mounting bracket, and voila!  I recommend their products if you need rear shoulder belts.
