ATTN Yousef: Rear Seat Belt Mounting Ideas!

To be honest Yousef I have yet to install the male end of the belts. Since I've got a SW I lack the rear hoop system where the OEM shoulder harness mounts. However, the stock mount for the female end wasn't a problem. As you can see in the picture below it works great. All you have to do to mount it is drop the gas tank and install it.

As for the male seat belt harness I'm still contemplating what the best and safest method of installation will be. Since I still have the Jump Seat mounting points I thought I might utilize them rather that worrying about structural stability down the road. So, I think what I might do is have a bracket fabricated that will affix to the stock Jump Seat belt mounting point (Blue Arrow) and also to the vertical OEM seat belt support (Red Arrow). I'll tap and thread OEM vertical support so the male belt carrier will posses two anchor points. Additionally, I'll mount the terminal end of the male belt harness to the rear bench holding bracket (Green Arrow). Although, I'm not sure if the latter will work because I think it will decrease the ease in which the bench should fold up and/or the shoulder harness' ability to wrap around an individual.

I need to make a mockup of it and see how it goes, but for now that's all I've been able to come up with. I attempting to keep the installation as stock as possible (mainly for esthetic appeal), but it needs to be structurally sound as my little girl will be back there in her car seat. I also thought that I might consult my local fire department as to the best possible why to mount the belts.

Sorry I didn't have more for you. If you've got any ideas by all means let me know! Hope some of this helps you out Yousef.

I have seen a 94 D90 with stock rear seat belts mounted by the blue arrow. Iím telling you DJ those 94 D90ís are weird. Get it done and let me know how it went as I'll be doing one very soon.

Thanks,
