With MOT looming, I am considering replacing my lacklustre inertia reel seat belts on my 2 seater trad 2003 +8 with static 3 point belts. Does any one know the up to date MOT regs. regarding vehicles used after 2003- can the seatbelt have lap buckle, as in aircraft, or does it need to be push latch buckle style. Also I have read that when using the wheel arch top mount, its a good idea to fit a strengthening strut akin to a brake reaction bar; any thoughts? TIA Phil

Good luck with removing the original inertia unit. It’s an absolute pig to get to.

Yes, I've read that, which is one reason why if I do have to get to it because of MOT failure, I'd rather not have to replace in the same location! Besides, moving forward it would free up a useful space for speaker placement laugh

You could try these for some advice, who get good reviews in classic car mags & work on some unusual projects (I've used them for supply only parts)

Thanks Jon- as I read it, post 72 cars can't use buckle type belts, so that's that part answered- it was only an aesthetic pondering really. I see push- latch type 3 points are available, so at least there's another option.

They’re pretty good, they replaced the belts on my +8 some years ago - took them three hours...

I also found FDTS extremely helpful to deal with when I had the seatbelts repaired on my Plus8.
