The tip with the rubber layer was good too - it made sense once you mentioned it.

Looks great! Got any better shots of how you did the seatbelts?

Thanks Charles!

I took these pics before I got the brackets powder'd and was test fitting:

The male/seatbelt roll is mounted on the side of the angle brackets. It's a tight fit in the middle of the seats. Once I pull the top off in the spring I can maybe get an overhead shot. Hope that helps for now.

About a year after I started this project I'm still messing around... The lapbelts didn't seem right when the kids were in the back. After searching online forever I went with Corbeau's 2" harness belt in the 3 point configuration: http://corbeau.com/products/harness_...harness_belts/

After all the work I did making the lap belt brackets - I started over to make them fit and look right. I used the same type of angle iron for where the lap parts bolt in and then a piece of iron stock that goes across all points. The shoulder part was t-bolted to the iron stock and then wrapped around it to take up a bunch of material.

(Click on the pics for a full res version of it.)

I've gotten 2 done and they seem to be working well. The kids don't mind being snugged in and they think it's like going on one of the rides at the amusement park.

My 2nd update goes with storage. I took out one of the jumpseats and was looking for a storage box that fit. Troy didn't have any of his jumpseat boxes in stock and graciously offered to get a couple done but the cost was pricey (understandably so for a low quantity run).

I like my Tuffy center console so the fenderwell pair looked like it could fit with some modification: http://www.tuffyproducts.com/p-91-02...ckbox-set.aspx

I ordered it from Quadratec and when it came it looked a little different from the pic. Not a big deal and after messing around with it, I found I could stuff it into the area at the rear most of the tub under the lip and it would clear the jumpseat and bracket. The only thing is the lid wouldn't be able to open. So I cut about an inch off the back of the lid but left the hinge all the way intack. Got it as flush as I could and drilled holes for the 3rd brake light and for the speaker wires to come up. I also drilled 2 holes so the hinge bolts could hold the box from the back. And another to share the bolt with the spare tire carrier. I used some washers to space it off the rivit heads. Overall a pain in that I had that box in and out about 5x to get everything lined up but I'm pretty stoked at how it came out. As a bonus I can throw some 6x9 joints in the back now for some thumping sound (just need to fab a left side speaker holder :

http://d90.unionstreetbikes.com/medi...picture&id=141
http://d90.unionstreetbikes.com/medi...picture&id=143

The lighting is for sh!t but there are a bunch of pics on my site. I'll grab some more when everything is completely done back there - yea right...

Now - I just have to fab the brackets for the right side jump seat harness belts and make a speaker box for the left side.

P.S. - I have the left side Tuffy Box for sale if anyone wants it for there tub. Will bolt right in on a bench setup or follow the pics to instal with jumpseats.

Holler with any questions or comments.

Jay the earlier pics I moved to a new site. I'd go in and change the links but I can't edit old post.

You should be able to see the pics on the new site: http://d90.unionstreetbikes.com/media/index.php

Please let me know if you are having issues. Thanks
