Try sitting in them with the belt fastened, if your hips are out past the bolsters then your ok. Otherwise yo'll have to see if you can thread the lap halves through the bolsters on the inside.

Depends on so many factors. Try it, if you're held in by them, then great! If not, and there's slack, then i'd be looking to stick with the harnesses.

I think you'll struggle to get a properly safe setup without the harnesses.
Is it that you can't reach the switches when you're strapped in? I'm building a remote switch box to move all the controls between the seats this winter to solve that problem. I say i'm building it, I built the panel months ago and need to get on with it....

to be honest with those it will make little difference if you use seat belts or harnesses as there are no harness slots.
But is a seat has harness slots then use harnesses as the sides will be too high and in a crash you would submarine out of the seat.

4 points are fine on the road, to be honest I prefer them to seatbelts once you adjust to them.. but id be wary as nick says, no harness slots so can slide off..

I have those seats and standard belts, got rear ended last week and it was fine. belts did an amazing job and I never left my seat.

Cheers for the responses guys I'll put a seat in the shell tomorrow and see how it fits. I'm 6 foot 4 and over 16 stone so I doubt it won't go over 😀

I too have very similar seats with standard belts, and they hold me snug, no problem of the sides being to high. I'm a skinny chap too!
