I've received some photos from Geoff, he's just fitted belts to a 67 Coupe.



















For those in Sydney, it was done by Geoff at All Vehicle restraints - 0417 473 492

I was trying to work out in the first pic how that bracket screwed in was going to mount the belts, then realised it was just temporary holding the mounting bracket in place while the goo dried. Laughing

Yep, itÒ€ℒs one of the tools of the trade he uses, another one I like is the bolt with hole through it, quite ingenious.

Yeah, he actually sent me the photos to alert me of the headrests, I've known about them for a while and may get myself a kit. Do you know of anyone in NSW that installs these?

Sorry mate cant help there as not N.S.W. ,they look like 69 headrests which would make sense as 68-69 share the same seat frames, guess 67 as well but don't know for sure ..

I just looked up the TMI headrests, seems to be an easy bolt on install.

Nope. 67, 68 and 69 seat back frames are all different.

The kits got sidetracked, TMI has come out with a mount for 68's they were not selling a while back. So am not sure its worth investing in something that will really just recover costs when interest was very limited even before the TMI's fit '68's.

Was going to make 25 kits but only one expression of interest so not worth hanging on to more spare stuff... shed is too full already! One pair was 10x the price per of 10, 25 not much more than 10 as its mostly setup costs.

It is pretty easy to fabricate a plate to mount a 69 headrest to a 68 back.

Geoff's done another fastback; slightly different to mine.







He states:

"I found that the factory plates on the transmission tunnel; the threads were partially stripped out & wouldn't tighten up when I replaced the stalks. When I got under car I found the plates were about 3mm thick with a raised up section of about 1mm; about 4mm in total for the bolt to screw into; very sub standard for a factory seatbelt anchorage.

Recommended seatbelt mount thread is 8mm thick. A normal 7/16 AF nut is about 9.5mm thick; all I did was fitted a lock nut underneath on the excess thread of the bolt & tightened it up.

Nuts are 7/16" UNF thread. Sorry didn't think to take a pic of the plate."

Can you get interior coloured seatbelts, I thought they were only black in that type

Yes. I have the same colour in mine. I'm pretty sure mine are from Hemco.
