Rear seat belts and front shoulder belts???

Recommended Posts

Anyone put rear seat belts in their Avanti or put should belts in the front seats??

I'm not building a show car but rather a daily driver. I want the car to be as safe and reliable as possible. I would also like everything to look nice.

Any ideas on the seat belts?

In my '70 which is in the rebuild shop now, I'm replacing the front and rear lap belts with new lap belts in the rear and shoulder belts in the front. The "B" pillar already is threaded for a shloulder belt but has a plug covering it so it should make the install easy. Don't believe a Stude would be drilled and tapped this way, but it likely can be.

An upholstery shop can provide and install a belt system if you want. I ordered mine through SeatBeltPros.com. You have a several styles of buckles and a huge selection of colors to pick from.

If you plan on driving the car regularly, then shoulder belts are the way to go.
