Installation Instructions for
Front and Rear Shoulder Belt Conversions
|1 The front safety belt guide
is mounted to a stud plate at the quarter trim panel and B-pillar.
The pillar must be drilled as shown to accommodate the stud plate.
Prime and paint your stud plates before installation. We suggest
satin black or body color. We've drilled a pilot hole for the stud
itself. Then we marked the pillar for either sheet metal screws or
rivets. The stud hole is drilled three times - First with a
1/8" bit, then 1/2" to 9/16" inch.
2 The stud plate is
installed as shown. Use a sealer where the plate contacts the
pillar. This prevents rust and keeps moisture out...
3 The fastener
holes are drilled (use a 3/16" bit) through the stud plate.
You can use rivets provided or sheet metal screws with flat heads.
|4 This phase
presented a challenge for us. We wanted our '67 Mustang Coupe
to have easy rear access (yeah right). So we pushed the retractor location
as close to the rear seat as possible. We're drilling a half inch
hole through the floorpan at the rear torque box. Location choice is
||5 The retractor is
secured to the floorpan with a 7/16" bolt and a large, flat washer
underneath. Install this guy with the head down and self locking nut
up. With the stud down, your Mustang's undercarriage will look
unsightly. We suggest painting the head and the washer flat black or
|12 The 3-Point Safety
Belt System from Mustang Depot fits nicely.
|13 Rear seat three point
belts have their retractors mounted on the package shelf, which actually
looks cool. This puts the mounting point where the nut plate fits
perfectly. Cleaning the rear window won't be as difficult either...
||14 Begin the drilling
process with a small 1/8" bit, then a 3/8" and finally a half
inch or 9/16" bit...
|15 The rear seatbelt
retractor attaches using this hardware: a 7/16" bolt and a nut
plate. The nut plate goes underneath the package shelf.
||16 These retractors are
mounted on an unpainted, uncovered package shelf. But you get the
idea-make sure your retractors sit flat on the shelf.
||17 Like the front three
point seatbelts, the rear seatbelts protect you better than ordinary lap
