    Default Safety Belt Fitting

    Hi everyone

    I want to fit some US 280z safety Belts to a UK car.

    It looks like on a US car,they fit into a recess in the rear panel behind the two sweater seats.

    Does anyone have a photo of this please?

    Can anyone cut out from a wrecker for me?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Is it a must to have seatbelts from an actual Z car? I've had excellent results with aftermarket seatbelts. I take it that you have a 2+2. The seatbelts are different between the coupe & 2+2.

    Default Belts

    Hi

    It's the belts in the lower picture that I have, they seem like they will pick-up on the b pillar bolt ok, but I don't have the recess or the hole for the 'longitudinal' bolt.

    If anyone has a photo of them fitted with the recess, I would appreciate it.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    That's what I was looking for.

    Any chance of a few more picks, different angles and the look from behind is possible?

    Cheers,

    Steve

    As I mentioned before, I have installed aftermarket seatbelts in my Z cars. I bought them from a company called WESCO Performance. The model I used in the 260Z was WELR-N, Roadster seatbelt. The retracting mechanism mounted high, near the hatch, while the bottom was anchored on the floor. I opted to buy the extra hardware. That made mounting the center portion of the belt a breeze. I'll post some pictures later.
