After reading a post by Bluedevils I decided to purchase a set of new seat belts.
The type in my coupe were the two piece variety with the shoulder harness attached to the bottom pies when you wanted to wear it. It was uncomfortable and allowed little movement when used to properly keep one safe.

I bought the seat belts from Al. His turn around time was fast and the product looks great.

I finally installed them last week. They are very comfortable and look good too!
I forgot what I paid for them but I am sure it was reasonable or I would not have gone forward.

Hi-

Just curious if Al's are 3-point retractable belts? Would they be comparable to a kit like this:

Lastly, if anyone has any mounting tips (where, how to mount, etc.) or could direct me to a thread that discusses that in detail, greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Those are cheap Chinese belts. They work OK but have no place in a vintage BMW. My belts are made using the best NOS German/BMW parts.
