    I put the Morris seat belts in my '73. They're a bit on the expensive side, but I feel better knowing they're there for me and my passenger should I need them.

    How do you like the Morris system
    How hard was the install
    Hows the fit between the seat and door for the retractor

    I personally really like them. As far as install, the toughest part (at least for me) was wrestling the seats out of the car. They utilize the existing mounting points in the roof and floor, so no modifications were needed. It did take some very minor tweaking to get the retractor situated appropriately so it wouldn't interfere with door closure, but once there and snugged down appropriately, I've had no issues.

    They are not what you would want for a concours car, but for my driver, I feel better having new belts rather than relying on 45 year old webbing.

    My 71 Z28 I bought is 1975 had the same belts as my 70 Z28.
