rear seat belts in a spider

Postby gbraun » Wed Apr 11, 2018 10:57 am

I want to fix rear seat belts on my spider azzura (1984) 2 liter and I wondering if there are the holes (for the center belt) in the car or I must do them myself ?

Anybody did the same improvement ?

My '74 has threaded holes on the sides only. If you purchase retrofit belts, you can buy an optional kit that will have new bolts, nuts, and large washers that reinforce the area that you would drill holes.

Lap belts would be an easy retrofit. Three point belts with a shoulder belt would be far more difficult because of the height of the seat relative to the bottom of the convertible top.

if you search the forum there's an excellent write up on the step by step procedure. Has pictures of exactly where to locate bolts and washers and a link where to buy the kit. I followed it and worked perfectly. Took less than an hour

Our 72 had regular, threaded mounts in the "back seat" area. I installed extra long belts, not for passengers, but for hauling the "3 G's": golf clubs, guitars, and Golden Retriever (in her doggie harness/vest). No humans are subjected to that area.....

I thought that the rear "seat" was removed from the Azzura"s?
