I have been thinking about installing a set of 3-point seat belts in my '69 fastback. I have seen the retractors installed on the floor in front of the rear seats, at the upper roof pillar location and also at the original lower mounting point. I am not too crazy about putting the retractor in front of the rear seat or at the roof pillar point, both places looks like it would interfere with people trying to climb in to the rear seat. I have seen the links on Tom Schmidt's mustang site (http://links.vintage-mustang.com/nomusic.html) but was hoping to get some additional input from people that might have done this conversion such as where did you get the belts (aftermarket, another vehicle, etc.) and which installation worked, or did not work, well for you.

Thanks for the input

Mustang Parts makes a great addiction.

In my daughter's '69 coupe, we put 3 point belts from Juliano's Interiors. The retrator is, as you said, right in front of the rear seat. Since the belts (including retractors) are black, and the carpet and seats are black, the retractor is not that noticeable, or at least it doesn't look "out of place". It also has no interference at all with getting in/out of the back seat.

I did, however, just get a recall notice from Juliano's on my passenger belt. Have to have them ship out a replacement, I guess.

I'll post more specifics tomorrow--I put 3 pointers all round on my 68 convertible. Installation was pretty simple, I still have one in kind of screwy. One thing I am disturbed about is the fact that mine have about 2500 miles on them, and the drivers side is starting to fray a little already. I'm going to have to go back to the maker and raise a little hell. I think they came from Pony Cars but before I cast aspersions on them, let me verify tomorrow.

Oh yeah, the whole set up ran about $500-pretty steep I thought.
