    Ok, so ya'll running your 45lwb with the bikini tops, what did you do about the seatbelts? If you have a link to the specific lap belt you got, please post it.

    State law in NJ says I must wear a seat belt.

    Idears? Links?

    Toyota offers a lap belt that would work for ya, you would prolly only need to add the outboard part, the inboard part should work

    I answered this in the 40s tech cross post. Someone there mentioned attaching to the headache rack, which I feel would be mucho mistake.

    63-67 US lwb pickups had only lapbelts. As for the later non US ones with the shoulder ones, get some lap belts.

    I just got my 78 on the road with the top and back panel off. The seat belt still works properly ( locking up like a normal seat belt ) with the retracting portion left in place on the tub. It wasn't uncomfortable or awkward. Went fishing and found out stock seats are good for short distances only.
