RE: [T3] Seat Belts

This is very strange to me, I have a '66 Fastback that came with no
seatbelts, after much protest about this situation from the Sig. Other I got
a set of 3 pointers from a show from a slightly later model car (no
retractors).  After getting them home I was happy to find plastic screwed in
covers over all 3 mounting points. It was just a bolt in and go situation.

Finally!  We have just discovered ONE TINY THING that is better over here in
the humid rust belt (Southeast), While I don't remember seeing the belts you
are looking for, each swap meet we have over here is chock full of interior
plastic that needs only a little rubber dressing to look good as new.  I'll
keep an eye out as I peruse the meets coming up shortly.
