545 viewsThis has everything needed for anyone wanting to do this provided they have experience welding, cutting and tapping metal. I've tried to be exact but I would highly recommend that the brackets be made with the particular car present to allow for test fittings.

532 viewsAll bolted up. Looks nice-n-neat, eh?
seatbelt_016.jpg
524 viewsPretty cover snapped on.

516 viewsHere's the lower outside mount and new bracket, mounted to the old stock location. This is shown for illustration purposes -- you need to mount the retractor first, then the bracket to the body.

507 viewsHow the back side looks. Pretty darn close to how the stock units look in later cars!

499 viewsNice rebuilt fuel injected engine. Automatic kick-down switch missing and she's going to need a new cold-start injector/harness as the previous one was *melted* :-(

488 viewsTake your 'new' belts and clean them. Do this by pulling out the belt and securing it with something to keep it from retracting.

486 viewsNow that's what I'm talkin' about! Clean!
seatbelt_004.jpg
482 viewsThe ugly stock belts and latches are removed.
seatbelt_012.jpg
482 viewsThis is the way you would actually do it; mount the retractor first THEN bolt the bracket and lower outside mount to the body. These two bolts should be tightened firmly but not by a gorilla i.e. don't over do it!

481 viewsPer Lingren spent the week before and after the Invasion at my place. Unfortunately, I had to work during that time so I couldn't show our Norwegian Invasioner much of the area but I was able to have a couple of my friends take him out and show him around. Here he is raising the rear end of my baby in preparation for the Invasion.

479 viewsJust a back-side shot of the 12mm bolts poking out the back. 10mm would be the perfect size but the hardware store I went to didn't have that size. The bolts should be M8x10 with 1.25mm thread pitch.

476 viewsJacob looses his autotranny flex plate just outside of Pendelton. Martin is kind enough to drive his Fasty and let the injured Square use the tow.
