Has anyone found 'the alternative part' to replace an M3W Seatbelt mechanism?

If you find some information about the seat belts please let me know Black Adder and I will add it to the list. There must be some early cars that have needed the belt mechanism replacing, they didn't even have the shield panel on the early cars so they got contaminated easily.

Having had the belts out of my M3 for servicing, and more recently just fitted inertia reel belts to my E-type (from the above referenced quickfitsbs.com) I would say it shouldn't be difficult to find an alternative to the MMC supplied items as there really is nothing special about them. The reel unit I used on my E-type was very similar in size and mounting to the ones used in the M3W, just different buckle arrangements.

It would be awesome if someone in the U.K. would work with the good folks at quickfits or similar to define a specification. Any seatbelt used in a machine with no weather protection will not live as long as one in a more conventional car, and with the earliest machines now 9 years old, a supplier should be able to shift quite a few sets.

From personal experience I can whole heartedly recommend "Quickfit" Stuart ( Mr Quick ) and Graham could not be more helpfull.
