    Here is a link to a thread I did on the seat belts. They are aftermarket 3 pt seat belts. Nothing special. http://forums.vintage-mustang.com/mo...nvertible.html
    They are not mounted to the bar. The bar isn't structural and would not make a safe place to mount the brackets for the seat belts.

    I did use the shleby interior kit as a starting point. I had to reshape the panels to fit my 84-93 Mustang Light bar. Not to bad of a job but I ended up having to cover the panels in vinyl afterwards to cover the modifications.

    I would be concerned about the with of the Fox body bar. The bars slide right inside the body but there is only about 1/4" fromt he base of the bar (black area not the bar that runs in the middle) and the quarter windows. If the 65/66 car is any narrower you will have to modify the bar to work.

    Hi there, Searched all over and nothing, so thought I'd cut to the chase and mail you...

    Regarding your roll bar setup... Did you use the 68 shelby kit interior quarter panels? If so, then I should be able to adapt whatever bar you are using per some instructions I found for mounting a 67/68 bar kit into a 66.

    What year is your light bar? There have been a few models over the years.

    Do you have 3 point belts attached to them? Recall the length or model you have?

    thanks, as I said I found a how-to in mounting the shelby bar into a 66, only I want the brake light & I like how the later bars slope/curve much more. I realize it will mean customization (adding tube to the legs like the 68 bar) but I want to buy the closest fit; I'm not sure how much these other bars differ as to the span length, etc.

    And thanks for always adding your thoughtful/helpful comments to the VMF!

    Hi--
    Love the car. I am selecting wheels and tires for my 71 Mach 1 and would be interested in your wheel dimensions and tire specs as well. Would you mind sharing that info?

    Thanks,
    Doug

    Thanks for the pic. I was talking with the builder and he has no question that the deck is going to be good. The heads have also been milled so they are FLAT. I think I'll be good but I will find out. He comes out on Sunday to help me put this beast back together.

    I didn't want to thread hijack any more, but since it looks like you're going with MLS gaskets, if you want a photo to compare with of the deck surface here you go. I mentioned the surface finish needing to be almost mirror-like and he said we should be good with this:

    I'm sure there are different types of MLS gaskets, and maybe yours are more forgiving than the Cometic, but there you go for comparison if you want to check out your head surface once you get the heads off.

    I did have them installed and it did take some effort. I climbed in the trunk and pushed REAL HARD to get them in. I gave up on one side and redrilled a hole in the hinge location so that I could easily put it in. That made it a breeze. I now have two holes on one of my hinges. I don't think the directions were very good on where to drill the holes. Let me know if this helps...

    Part II...

    When you bought these, did they come with some kind of strap around them holding them in a closed position, or something? Again, I don’t see how one could install these without building some kind of holding jig (and I didn’t have time for all that nonsense).

    They are long enough that they will bear against the rear panel behind the back seat. They will “wedge” in the corner where the rear panel meets the trunk floor. And, they will work like that. In the end, that’s how I mounted them. I just forced them into the outboard corner where the rear panel, floor, and wheelwheel meet. They ain’t goin’ nowhere.

    But, that’s clearly not how they’re supposed to be installed. So, my question is, did you ever actually install them on your car, and if so, how? I might try again.
