I use racing seat belts in my rear engine BCW. The 3″ wide lap
belt is bolted to the tunnel on the inside and to the reinforced
corner of the floor pan (near the rear torsion bar) on the
outside. They have worked very well for me in these mounting
positions and are comfortable.
You don’t want to skip using a shoulder restraint —- you and
your passenger WILL regret it. A friend of mine wrecked her TD
replicar. It was a small front end collision but because she
didn’t have a shoulder harness she hit the steering wheel and
caused serious damage to her face and throat.
I have a 2″ racing shoulder harness with my belt. It has two
straps (one for each shoulder) and they connect to the lap belt
at the clasp. I connected it to a steel frame that I made that sits
in front of the engine, underneath the body and roof. The frame
connects to BCW’s subframe.
The lap and shoulder belts work very well for me. They make
driving the car more enjoyable because I don’t move around at
all. The only disadvantage (a small price to pay) is that the
racing seat belts take longer to put on than a standard car
I would be happy to provide more information if anyone would
