Seat Belts Install

Need to install some belts in a 1950 Ford Custom Deluxe. Anyone done this already or have some advice on the proper / safe way to do this? Also, any suggestions on what kit to go with?

Thanks!!

I got the seatbelts for my '33 sedan from Seatbelt Planet - here is a page from their site that might help: https://www.seatbeltplanet.com/seat-belt-101/

What I have done is cut the nut plates out of a late model at the pick-a-part and weld them in in the places they were in the late model..also cut the nut plate out of the door post and weld that to the post in your car and then bolt in the belts from the late model and you are good to go..

Seats from a late model convertible will work well. They have an integral shoulder belt system.

Thanks for the help and advice guys! I will probably just put some simple lap belts in since this is not a daily driver etc. Really like the old aircraft style belts. Anyway, keep the advice coming.

Thanks!

You might just as well use rope.

I have a friend who loves to talk about the imprint in his chest he had from his steering wheel for a year after being in a head on with only a lap belt. Then again it might be a good thing the steering wheel caught him before his head impacted the dash.
