    Ok, So on the weekend I fitted the new rock-n-roll seat that I got from Menangler. It's a beauty. Went in like a dream. The problem I have is that the shoulder seat belts on either side seem to be too small for anyone other than a child? Has anyone else experienced this? I'm tempted to just to unbolt the top anchor point and put it on the same bolt that the bottom of the belt goes into and turn them into lap sash seat belts. Right now they are useless for adults.

    Cheers,

    Steve

    hahaha. thought as much. Maybe the original seat sat a bit further back so the seat belts didn't have to reach as far. Can you see any problems with bolting the back anchor point down with the bottom anchor point so it would act as a lap belt rather than a shoulder belt?

    Steve,
    Just read your post and relised I didn't give you the original seat belts for the bed seat, they were still on the floor of the shed all baged up.

    PM me your postal address and I will get them in the post for you.

    Sorry about that
    Dave
