Window pillar supports added to the body, I measured all the sizes and ordered the window from Red-fox windows, this will have a chromed brass frame will get it next week. Have asked for a window wiper to be added and all the wiring to be inside the frame so you won't see any.

On to the window pillars purchase two aluminum cast pillars I don't think the fibre glass is strong enough to support the pillars & the window so I fabricated two brackets which I welded to the inside frame these are made from ΒΌ" steel plate should do the trick

Had to purchase a new type of safety belt unit with a belt gripper attached this has become the only one aloud to be installed after the end of 2009, once again more changes to the road safety law so once again the belt I was going to install went in the bin.

The seat belt top anchor needs to be between 460 to 600mm above the H point, the H point is 70mm form the base of the seat straight up & 128mm from the back of the seat forward. It must be between 140mm to 500mm from the centre of the seat outward. This makes the top anchor about 100mm above your shoulder if your 5 foot 6" high Average world height for men.
Photo 1: Acquired a smaller size tube couldn't get it perfect so I had to split it down the middle, spread it apart and welded it in Photo 2: I drilled holes in the large pipe to weld the smaller pipe in so I could keep the straight edge. Photo 3: Pipe finished

Roll Bar may not be the correct name as it is mainly for the safety belt top support bracket more than roll protection but if it works for both all's good, As I don't have pipe cutters I used a hose clip to get a good straight cut as in Photo one, Took to the pipe with a cut off wheel 1mm thick, cut like a knife through butter Photo 2, Sat the two ends on top of each other to ensure the match was good enough for me. This was done only so the top half could be chrome plated as it needs more bling.
