      I don't see how they would hook to the lap belt.

      Looks like my head liner clips are different and not sure on the lap belt from mine to yours.

      I'll just use lap belts for the time being. Can always pick some up after I get it driving.

        Lemme dig them out and send pics. The holders for the should belts are chrome and they go just to the outside of the sunvisors.

        The old wheel had a couple breaks in the ring, put some putty in there , dressed it down and put a new cover on . Have to bump the budget up $7. This wheel came off the 68, I like it more than the 67 .

          Also cleaned up the old 67 door panels and installed those along with some new window cranks I got from MoparMatt and some more I got from Jason along with the door handles. That bumps the budget $60. Plus like $60 for the new arm rest from Classic

          Got my door and trunk locks installed and all lubed up also.

            stretched out the rear of the headliner , a little spray adhesive and some clothes pins to hold it till it dries . Looks a little better.

              The rear is an old Stock seal. The front is this. Haven't tried it yet. I have heard it has passed through at least 4 members hands , so I hope it fits.

                67 only, but correct! That's the gasket for the lockstrip we talked about.
                Looking good!

                Ya , I have the lock strip also . Actually I have enough lock strip for the rear also , but I doubt if it will fit the stock seal now that I think about it. I'm gonna have to check the stuff out, Soon.

                I was thinking of using Classic's kits but I think all are made in China but will check a little more.

                  Not yet I have a couple plastic rollers that are broke and need to order them.
                  They worked great before I took them apart and labeled them real good but I can see they will be a great pain in the ass to put back in. I think it will take 4 beers just to get them in the hole...

                  Al I bought chrome lift latch seat and shoulder belts from www.wescoperformance.com. modern style with a sash and retractor. Bought sets for
                  Both cudas. Ran about $200 for 2 front shoulder belt setups, and 2 rear seat belts. but what's your safety worth to you. BTW I put the roof anchor points on my 67 where the coat hook screw holes are. My sons 69 has shoulder belt anchors, that is exactly where they put em on late 68 and on 69 model coupes.

                    Well I spent most the day trying to install the front and back glass. 4 - 5 hours on the rear glass with the used gasket and just can't get it to go in. To stiff and brittle , Gasket started cracking up. just ordered a new one from Steele with the lock strip , There goes the budget $225. Used one was worth a shot, I did manage to scratch and chip my New F@#&& paint in the process.
                    The front glass went in with a new gasket in 30 - 45 mins. Part # is in post 111. Fit OK but I don't think the chrome lock strip is right for the seal.

                    I also bought some rear arm rest bases (chrome ). I don't think I'm going to use them , If any of you might need em let me know . 67 -72. When I get done with the interior I'll have a bunch of stuff left over also.

                      My budget went out the window a long time ago. and lots of extra parts as well.
                      We should have been neighbors could have a hell of a garage sale.
