Re: Fitting inertia real seat belts to a roadster

Michael, I guess you will already know this, but there have been issues in the past over installations which did not have the correct orientation to permit self locking of the belt when required. Most standard installations have the reel placed fairly high up on a door pillar - not possible on an MG...
