racing seatbelt installation
How do I install racing seatbelts in a car woth no rollcage?
It's easy to do if you have a rollcage but I don't currently have one.

the lap belt can mount underneath the stock seat. just remove the two rear bolts that hold the frame down. for the shoulder belts, you can bolt them to the rear seat. a rear strut bar would be easier to install 'cuz you could just strap the belt around the bar, which would make it a lot easier to install/remove.

If i belive correctly you have to take out the back seats. To tie the belts on correcltly. If not in a crash the belts can rip throuh your shoulders. And you dont want that to happen do u?

a cheap way of doing this would be to buy a TRD rear strut tower 3point brace and just tie the sholder harnesses onto that.

racing seat belts in a car without a roll cage is POINTLESS.

Save your money, all you are going to do it make it harder to get in and out of your car.

Attaching them in the wrong way can be deadly.

and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

They are for looks unless I can find a 4 point rollcage to go with
