Rear shoulder belts in pre-'89 cars

I've noticed that 1989 and newer cars sometimes have three point belts installed in the back seats. I have a five year old daughter and would want to keep her in her seat if the dreaded event ever happened. I've heard horror stories about two point belts destroying kid's innards. Is there a retro solution for earlier cars? And is there no hope for Cabs and Targas?

Question One: There is an after market kit available for the rear three point seat belts. Search is your friend.
Try these previous threads,

Link One

Link Two

Question Two: Nope there is no hope what so ever. I have looked everywhere and there just is no hope available for Cabs or Targas. Buy a Coupe!

You guys are a hoot!

I tried a search but I must not have put in the right info. This link is excellent!

You guys are a hoot and I agree that the Targa is less than ideal but I'm not so sure the Cab isn't worth having. My very first car as a teenager (in 1974, so that ages me a bit) was a 1961 Austin Healy 3000 Mk III. Rust everywhere and it hardly ever ran ... but when it did, it was a blast! There's nothing quite like a roadster.

Lousy copy of an old picture of me with my Healy (flash pretty evident) but I thought you guys would like to see this shot. Check out the hair! Yikes.

Long hair

Was hair that long and ridiculous still stylish in 1984?

yeah..you must have forgotten..my '80's' generation had a real identity crisis with hair and clothes..at least the 70's were more or less consistent..either hippy or disco. we had punk and new wave added to that!

I was fortunate to be able to purchase rear shoulder belts from fellow pelican. Great seller, Offcamber00, since he was getting car track ready he switched rear decks with me, so had factory look with the belts coming out of the shrouds of the deck. I have an 87 coupe. After 84 the mounting points are already there. just screw them in. I think pepparts makes aftermarket shrouds you have to cut your rear deck for them. Pre 84 I am told need to weld support.

I installed rear belts (from pcar in LA) today, but I need the trim/shroud pieces and the cahones to cut the deck. I took a TON
of pictures so far. Most interesting occurance was that the pre-cut
padding was off by quite a bit - I had to utility-knife the holes wider/longer. 20 years does that I guess, luckily the reel bolts came out smooth and the stock receptical fits the new belts.

Anyone have the part number/proper name for the seat belt egress trim?
"Shroud" was a new one, but pulls up engine stuff usually...

Also looking for the "perfect" booster seat for semi-permanent install.
Thanks
Todd
