Following what Kurt did to Funky Truck i am going to install seat belts in my 1960 single cab. Going to fab the parts myself.

Is anyone else interested or need the middle inside bracket. (Item 1 below) It would be made with the clearance for the panel bumps but all in one shot. Not the individual recess. 1/4" steel. Bent close to weld in place but understand you may need to tweak yours a little or fine tune the fit.

If i set up for one i might as well make more. not sure the price yet but if you have interest please let me know.

This is not a for sale thread, just a thread to gauge interest.

I installed seat belts on our '60 sc 20 years ago... just drilled holes on the spare tire well and next to the seat, put a big washer, on both sides and a stainless bolt and nut... works great.
... here's Charles wearing his seat belt in the Westy.

Here's my contribution. I remember seeing it in a parts bus and thought maybe someone can mass produce this. Very glad you stepped up to the plate Mathew.
Hopefully this helps to save lives in a unfortunate/unforeseen accident.
