3-Point Seat Belt Upgrade

I have an 84 cab with lap belts and looked into installing the 3-point belts from a coupe. I could not find a way to attach the third point that would not interfere with the cabriolet top mechanism when you opened it. I would also be interested in any help about making this change.

Most of these cars had the third attachment point on the rear deck even if they did not have the 3-point belts.

In Pennsylvania I was able to find in our DOT law that children did not need the "Booster" seat if the vehicle was originally equipped with only lap belts. As you have noticed the lap belts do not hold the booster seat well and it also raised the child up putting them more so in harms way with a convertible. The small rear seats of the 911 work well for child to be tucked in. You will need to check your state laws about child seats.
