This is all about safety! After a 3-year refurbish, I want to drive my car, and to feel safe.
I’ve carefully scoured the archives, but I don’t see a good way to add a 3-point harness to my 3.8L car, while retaining an operable hood (convertible top). Either the shoulder belt rides over the folded convertible top (impractical) or under it (even worse). Sure, if I remove the hood and add a hardtop (hah!), I can mount the shoulder belt. Or, if I detach the hood, and stow it away in the garage, ditto the shoulder belt.
I understand the location of the factory mounting points, and alternative points, but they don’t play well with the hood stowed.
Did Jaguar offer shoulder belts with the “fixed”, early seats (half-barrel with no adjustable rake)? If so, I’d would really appreciate a photo or two. Bonus points if someone has found a way to fit “inertia reel” 3-point belts, but I’d even be happy with separate belts.
