    Ray, you might want to do a search first, then if you don't get an answer, start another thread with this question.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

      Hi Ray Sullivent
      I moved your post to a new thread. Each issue that you tackle should get a new clean posting or things get all discombobulated. Here is a seat belt Technical thread that may give you some ideas

        What is your model, coupe, sedan, etc? Many of us mount 2 point lap belts to the floors behind or under the seats. One can add large washers to spread out the load. (see Seat Belts Plus website for examples). I use 74" long belts for some 2 door and all 4 door sedans. The belt clamps can be usually concealed under bench seats. I've seen a sedan install where a 3 point lap belt upper clamp was installed to a custom angle thru the rear quarter upholst. curved panel to the body mating panels (seam) with a tang protruding outside the panel to receive the bolt but . (can't verify the strength or panel seam stresses induced).

          Ray you are a fairly new member here, and fresh in the hobby. Do you have this Les Andrews red book?

            Seat Belts in 30 Coupe
            by dmaxweb
            First off, sorry for another seat belt thread. I've searched and searched for a clear illustration on the inboard belts.
            The inboard belts are bolted to the reinforced cross sill behind the tool pan - so far so good. How are the belts routed through/around the wood seat frame and/or the curved sheet metal at the back of the seat?

            3 point seat belt
            by carolinamudwalker
            I installed the fixed belts to 1/4 '" angle iron in the usual way, but I through bolted the angle iron to the frame. In the trunk/rumble seat area I installed two horizontal flat bars to the rear vertical deck pillars A-47461 & A47453. 0n both sides. The first picture shows a belt extension that is bolted to the top horizontal bar. I was to lazy to remove the cardboard panel for this picture,...

            Seat belts in rumble seat
            by Tom Rode
            I am searching for information on installing lap belts in the rumble seat of my A. I see many threads and articles about belts for the front seat which I am planning for my next project, but see no info on lap belts for rumble seat, where everyone want to ride. Anyone done this. Also looking for method for padding the area behind the front seat for those rear passengers.

            Question of the day - Friday
            by JohnB15632
            My question today involves seat belts. I must install seat belts as I will be carting around 3 grandchildren. And for that matter, if anyone wants to ride in my A, he/she will wear a seat belt or they will not ride.

            Installing the seat belts in the rear is fairly straight forward. The rear bottom cushion can be removed with a little gentle nudging. Or a big hulk of a crowbar.

            Advice on seat belts: Brands you like etc. Links on good methods of installation... I've put this off too long so looking for advice... My understanding is a lapbelt is about all that somewhat workable.

            Pickup Seat Belts
            by KenB
            I’d like to install lap belts in my ‘30 pickup. I’m not understanding how to do so to option a 70 degree angle. I’m also thinking additional steel may be needed. Any direction on successful seat belt installation will be appreciated! Would retractable be indicated?...
