Fronts were direct replacements with stalk type buckles
When I return home from my holidays I'll post pictures

How easy was it to fit the rear belts? Would like to do the same.
I am also just about to buy some front inertia belts. Do they bolt onto the existing mounting points or is any modification needed?

I used Securon 500/30 for my 500...

They bolt straight in to existing mounts. I used some aluminium tubing to space out the top mounting so that the belt hanger moved freely.

cheers, Steve

I too have just paid well over the odds. Wish I had waited until I had seen this :(

The bottom of my existing stalks are bent at right angles allowing them to be bolted to the floor point then run up the side of the centre tunnel. Anyone have difficulty bending their new ones? Mine seems to be made of kryptonite!

Ignore my last question about the stalks, I have sorted it. Two fully functioning front seat belts. Just slightly more expensive than if I had looked around!
