I know this has been mentioned recently, but has anyone found a fix to prevent the inside edge of the near side belt getting frayed. As far as I can see it is caused by the back bulkhead metal plate fouling the seat belt edge.

If anyone decides to go down this route from fdts. Their escutcheons are a perfect fit for the seat belt mounting rectangular hole. BUT my 4/4, in true Morgan style, the factory have glued the ash frame along the top of the rectangular hole. This prevents the escutcheon from sliding up far enough to allow it to clip into place. I managed to “file” down the top of the escutcheon leaving about 1/16”, which allows it to clip into place. Hopefully this will be a bit more friendly to the belt.
(File for me was very carful use of a belt sander)
