    More progress, Mike installed the driver seat so we could mock up the lap belt for locating the lower escutcheon.








    Then we contemplated vertical or parallel....








    Remaining escutcheons were welded up...








    Ideally the inner opening of the ring should rest on the midline of the sleeve. This provides for a good fusion weld and starts the formation of the radius we're looking for around the inside opening. Here's the various stages of welding the escutcheons:

    Mike got the remaining openings cut in the arm rest and kick panels for the escutcheons...











    Test fit...








    …..and JB got started on the speaker trim rings for us...






    The recess on the rear is for the stainless mesh...

    Great work Robert! You're not going with a 3-point seatbelt? Not sure I'd ever want to drive a car anymore with just a lap belt.

    The shoulder harness has an anchor point (1/2-13 lock nut) welded into the B-pillar, the retractor is inside the kick panel and shares the same anchor point with the lap belt. Hence the two escutcheons in each kick panel/arm rest assembly.. The bucket seat frame has the seat buckle attached, the rear bolts to the frame are 5/8-11 …. we didn't show the upper part of the belt in this mockup as those holes had already been located..

    Oh I see. I thought I saw something in the past showing an anchor on the b-pillar.

    Did some mockup of the fuel lines so we could get the required fittings identified..















    Finishing up the polishing of our seat belt escutcheons.. after using roloc scotchbrite pads to clean up the vixen file marks, we then used 320 dry, 1500 wet, and 3000 trizact damp. Then to the polishing..

    Here's the comparison between the 3000 and after polishing..






    That should do for us..
