Hi,

So sorry, I forgot all about this.

Here are the photos, please ignore the string lines and spirit level. These are only there because I was discussing with a seatbelt company about having belts made to fit the Heritage shells. Rover belts are pretty hard to find and expensive when you can find them. I was trying to get a batch made by a seatbelt specialist because Securon belts are junk quite frankly and I've had enough of replacing mine every three years.

no your right, there special ones, they have an adjustable ratchet in them so they dont jam up when they are at funny angles! i dont know where they came from shopwise, as i got them out of a donor mini! i will have a look on them wednesday to see if i can find any sort of manufacture name or seriel number etc!

Ok, i couldnt find a name, but i think they must have been made by Securon! i have found the spec on their website after a quick search! They are

"Angle Adjustable Retractors"

Posted Image

they are the second one on this list Click Here

which will show you the attatched picture! it has to be this one, and not the one further down as this is the one with the retractor and not a mounting point! hope this helps! sorry if it doesnt!

Does help a lot mate, thanks. Anyone know where to buy them from?

Also, would this http://www.minisport...EC264BLACK.html work? Both sides? How would it be mounted?

Thanks

Mark

Edit:

just found this http://www.securon.c...elts_austin.htm
if anyone is interested, looks like the automatic mini part suggested is 254, which is the same as the one Mistro has.
Just got to find somewhere that stocks the bleeding thing now :D

there is a shop on ebay that sells them, or is showing they sell them, but i dont know which belt it actually is, i emailed the bloke asking which one it is, so i will let you know what he says and get you a link when i hear something back from them!

EDIT: Click Here to go to the store on ebay which supposidly sells them! hope you can find them!

Marky Tizz has just told me that they are the same ones that would go into a VW beetle, so it might be worth searching for them as well as "mini" also, i found quite a few on ebay, but make sure they have a fabric on the buckle and not a stalk!

The Beetle, Triumph Dolomite, and classic mini all use the same rear automatic seatbelts (not the mpi ones though, we're talking the ones in Mistro's pictures), the part number is Securon 254.

Found them for sale here:

http://www.canleycla...onseatbelts.xml

Triumph parts specialist ^^

and The Mistro found Beetle ones on eBay:

http://cgi.ebay.co.u...D2#ht_801wt_909

which, if they are proper beetle ones, will fit a mini according to Securon, as they are also part number 254.

Hope this has helped everyone, it's definitely helped me out!
