Is it worthwhile having a section somewhere for seats and belts std and modified?


The issue is, how many sub-forums do you want to create?



Thought of that , you could just keep going with many sections.
The thing is you can put wiring diagrams in the tech section, as well as the wheel/tyre chart which covers all types of wheels.
But modifications such as brakes, seats and belts using Australian or other makes of donor car parts there is no charts for. I spent alot of time reading posts in my search just because it had a seat mentioned.


I did see that other post in my search, but just quickly put up examples when i decided to post. I have now added it in my first post and with all the links there and the title of the thread,they will be easier to find now anyway.

Engineers in NSW have not passed a seat mounted seat belt stalk that I know of.
It is (as stated above) because of the seat mounting.


Thanks Kerry but i was chasing a positive answer Laughing Laughing

I did buy after market stalks for the application but really hoping i could use the seat mounted one.
Bloody safety rules looks like i may have to use them after all. ๐Ÿ˜ข


Just pluck the riser's out of the fastback, modify and document and refit.
No problem to a man of your abilites.


Was already thinking that way Nassi, but would it be worth it?
I would consult an engineer first otherwise would be a waste of time.
I have decided however to reinforce and document the convertible riser since it is out as i may be putting the cream Jag electric seats in it.
Due to the Convertible pan going over the tunnel and also having the lower pans below the floor imo i think there would be no real issue there if plated at the seat mounts.

I also try to label my threads specifically so it helps others in their searches.

I've now put Lap sash seat belts 65 fastback Mustang in the subject title of the post within my car's thread.

I am thinking of taking a step back to the original seat frames and using these new TMI Sport R seat covers and foam. They come with a few choices of stitching colour but unfortunately they charge an extra $200 to change the suede insert colour which is what i want to grey.
You also need the sports seat foam at $149us each. Adds up to just over $800us plus shipping.
www.tmiproducts.com/mu...eries.html

If you purchase the set and the foam from Mustang Interiors
it works out close to $200 cheaper Shocked

If i do go for them, i have a new unfitted front and rear set of 66 fastback black deluxe pony trim and front seat foam i would sell to help cover costs if anyone is interested.
I was going to use the front seat trim with the ponys and badge from these seats to partially retrim Falcon ute or the Supra seats i have. Which may still be an option and work out about the same price all up.

Iรขโ‚ฌโ„ขve heard that that extra foam can be a nuisance particularly on the sides when you close the doors, they rub up against the door trim.

It's a shame they don't do a rear only set.
I'd like to get a rear set of those, then have my BA seats trimmed to suit.

Foam does all the work JC.

Hybrid they should be able to do rear seat only, send them an inquiry.

I contacted TMI and they said you can order just the rear seat.
I will speak to the upholsterer and see what he says. He won't be able to replicate the pony pattern, but if he can get the look and stitching close, that would be enough.

Do you know an approx cost to recover the falcon seats? Its something i would rather do because i dont like how the original mustang seats fold forward and towards the trans tunnel, they will hit my console. I can get some fg ute seats for $250 and was thinking using my deluxe covers for the pony print and badge.

I think the whole lot in leather is going to be around $2k.
But if I go this route on the rear seat, then I may do vinyl throughout. I don't know how the vinyl compares to the leather hides for cost. I imagine it's a fair bit cheaper.

I want to cover my 1/4 inserts too.. but that's much easier to do on the coupe.
