looking at the seat belts the mounting area needed changing as i,m fitting inertia real seat belts, so a bit more to do and beef up the mount.



The strengthening plate has been welded in place now

Sadly the rear sill had to come off again, i wasnt happy with the fact it didnt line up with the main sill, plus the seat belt mount had to be welded in.


Now fully welded in place, incidentally if anyone is interested in panelwork and welding search out Trevs blog on youtube, very good info.
