Just wondering if anyone has tried to install rear shoulder harness type belts in the rear of a fastback with std. interior. I am about to order Andover belts and I really need to get shoulder straps in the rear because my youngest kids are in booster seats. I want to do everything I can to keep them safe. Anyone done this? Also, any other tips on the Andover sizes, etc. and installation tips? (yes, I have search and read about everything in the forum.) ::

My fastback has a folddown rear seat, so I am wondering if I might be able to get the retractors into the wall / wheel well area or something. Maybe have the strap come through the fiberglass panel and up to a welded in mount behind the rear glass / roof trim (metal panel). Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,

David

I have yet to try it, but I bought an extra set of interior fiberglass parts for my '65 Fastback with the intention of trying that very idea. I figure the belt reel can be mounted behind the rear of the door, with the belt feeding up through a neat slot in the fiberglass. The '79-'93 Mustangs had the belts set up that way - there's even a trim piece that the belt passes through which puts a finishing touch on the slotted interior panel. I'll bet the 2-door Escorts had a similar setup.

Fashioning the top mount looks like the biggest part of the challenge. If I get around to it, I'll be sure to take pictures.

Can you comment on what you mean by "mounted by the rear of the door"? Since I have a door that pivots from the trunk, I'm not exactly sure what you have in mind?

Thanks,

David
