    I ran a check & came up empty. My 91 has the shoulder belts bolted to the top. One side is missing bolts but I was wondering what anyone does for restaints when you remove this style top. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    the 91 is the only one with the shoulder belts in the rear... if you are talking about the rear.

    The spring mechanism that hold the top of the belt is bolted to the cap with 2 bolts. I could not find a way to mount the box anywhere else once the cap was off, so i ended up cutting mine and turning them into permanent lap belts. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Probably not the best idea, but it works.

    I just unbolt mine from the top. Two bolts per side and they are down. As for the passengers in the back I've only had more than two people with me 3 times and never with the top off. If it's just one person I tell them to sit in the middle where the belt is. I've thought about getting some lapbelts but that's money I'd rather spend somewhere else /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif.

    I have a 90 Jimmy and they are bolted to the top /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif So I just unbolted them from the floor. At the time they were striped out so I had a nut welded on them and finally got them out with an impact wrench. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Mine is a '90 and had those too. I bought 2 lap belts from Checker Auto and put those in. The floor bolts were very hard to get out and required some heat, but it didn't take too long.
