Hello,
I am considering installing seat belts in classic car, can you tell me what the standard mounting procedures are and what best practice is. My panel beater tells me there is no regulation for this but I want to use best practice not rule of thumb??

Adding seat belts will require sign off from a registered seat belt certifier.

Its best you make contact with a certifier in your area before you attempt this job as they are highly likely to want to discuss specifics in regards to mounting points.

While we applaud your efforts to make occupants safer you also need to be careful you don’t change the charisma that most classic cars have.
