Driver's seat shoulder & lap strap...

I feel nekkid without my shoulder strap... Lap strap only!
I'm proud of my dental work and awesome looks... I wanna keep it that way.

Has anyone added a shoulder/lap strap?

Should be pretty easy to bolt one on!

Did they even have lap belts on yours?!?!

I remember my '69 nova had lap belts... And an optional shoulder belt that you poked up out of the way in some little wire loops above the door frame.

Not hardly. In '46 you were expected to just maintain a manly grip on the wheel during crashes.

I replaced the original pilot's seat with an all mechanical unit from a Toyota but since there is no "post" in my bus...I didn't take the original 3 point harness. I do have a lap belt, but would prefer to have the shoulder strap as well...if I can figure out a place to attach it.

Had a friend who restored an early Mustang convertible......he mounted the shoulder belts to the floor behind the seats, and brought them up-and-over. Made some nice little 'guides' to hold them on top of the seats. He had low-back buckets, though......you might not be able to find a shoulder belt long enough to fit up and over a high back.
