These are specially designed to work in any Spridget. We've used them in Big Healeys, MGBs, MGT series and all Triumphs too! They are 3-point inertia belts which are not handed - can mount on either side of the car. Install is fairly straight forward but if you are unsure about it, any shop should be able to install these pretty quickly.
To install, bolt the retractor flat to the wheel arch as shown in the pictures above. You will need to drill one hole for mounting the retractor, use a through bolt with a washer on the backside to anchor it.
These Inertia reel belts are what we use almost exclusively on cars that leave our building. We like them because they are less apt to flip out and chip the rocker panels and thus chip the paint. Non-inertia belts often flop out of the car. These instead retract behind the seats and are less opt to damage your finish. Plus an inertia belt makes most drivers feel more at one with their car!
I like them because there is just enough tension on my shoulder to make me feel connected to the seat and thus to the chassis. They do come with a (removable) sliding fork that acts as a stop, however, a gizmo that allows your passenger to perhaps set the belt tension a little looser so that the belt parks with some slack.
All our seat belt kits are now stocked in 3 colors Black is the standard, and it goes with everything. Dark Blue is a perfect match for any iris blue car with a blue interior. And our exclusive dark red is a wonderful accent in a white and red Bugeye. Our dark red seat belt matches the stock deep red interior wonderfully!
Many more custom colors are available-note the photo of green Gumby with silver belts to match the silver stripes! If you need a special order color please E-mail Info@bugeyeguy.com and we can get just about anything for you.
