HR wagon seat belt mount position

Hi all,

I'm working on a HR rebuild with my Dad (the original Old Holden guy ;)

We're putting three-point seat belts into the back seats, but we're not sure where to attach the top mount of the seat belts.

Has anyone put these belts into a HR (or similar model) wagon, and be willing to share advice or photos of how this was done?

Thanks very much all.

Cheers,
JB

when i had my EH wagon i had 3 small kids, All in either booster or child seats, i mounted my outer lap sash retractables to the top of the wheel arch with standard 50x75 plates underneath. the centre i left as lap only using original floor mounts, The baby seat extra strap i put 3 mounts onto the frame work directly behind the rear seat using same mounting plates, did it so that when the floor went back in only the hook part of the mount showed in front of the floor board, i didnt get it engineered at the time but i have since heard that the only method that will be approved is a bar that runs from side to side between the wheel arches area with mount attached to that but not at floor level, up near top of the seat. I think the risk is if the seat folds fwd it can create slack in the belt if it goes down the back of the seat. so for centre belt i think thats your only option in a wagon. I think its still acceptable to only have lap in the rear centre these days, my 2001 holden rodeo came from factory with only lap centre rear, and my FX is engineered with only a lap centre front on a bench seat

maybe have a look how modern wagons are done and get ideas from that?
