Installation of Our 3-Point Retractable Shoulder Harness Kit in a Ford Mustang

My vintage '67 Mustang only came with lap belts in both the front and rear.  The extra added protection of a shoulder strap will always be welcome in an accident.

The assemblies were purchased from Pony Car Sales and Restoration in California.  They also supplied the rear harnesses and the headrest kits.  They were great to deal with and are providing a great service to the vintage Mustang community.

Seatbelt kit laid out for inspection The seat belt kit.  Only one front and one rear seatbelt assembly is shown.  the parts on the left half of the photo are for the front seats.
 
We removed the front seats for this because we thought it would make it easier to move around the inside of the car. Heather under car
 
Heather mounts buckle You can immediately remove the old seat belts and put the new center belts in because they use the original factory holes.
 
Next we measure for the upper bolt. We then center punched the hole and drilled it.  This top bracket also requires two pop rivets for each side. Marking the door frame

Drilling...

We worked up the drill size in three steps rather than jump straight to the big one.

Drilling the door frame
 
Drilling the floor Drill for the bottom bolt which holds the inertia reel next.  Cutting the carpet where you want to drill is a good idea so that your drill does not get caught on the fabric.  Attach one of the ninety degree brackets to the reel and then use the bracket and another bolt to attach it to the floor. Use the larger washer for the underside of the car.

The new belts work great and feel "right".
