all the original SII seatbelts i have seen have by now been fairly
useless. They seem to age somewhat (they seem to rot and fray unlike
the modern belts).
I found some in the shed the other day and was going to use them as
straps to lift an engine with - but decided that i didnt trust them to
take the weight!
If i were you i would try to get something remanufactured or find some
new ones that look right.
I may still have the shackles hanging about (not sure if i have both
parts though - but definately the horseshoe shaped bit). Tell me if
you want them. They were in the pile of bits to chuck out the other
My mate is also currently doing up a SII. that had the original seat
belts in when he started, so they may still be in the back. I will
check with him later. They were adjustable length (so non-iniertia
reel) shoulder/lap ones though.
