I’m my humble opinion (and they do say opinions are like ar5eholes......,everybody’s got one)....a Cobra isn’t a Cobra without these.....

They are 5 point belts, I’m going to adapt the seat bases so I can pass the crotch strap through it before I drive the car.

OK in a FIA or Le Mans, but a bit of a faff in a slabside. I remember 'convoying' many times with another member who had these and it took for ages before he was ready to drive off.
Cheers, Clive.

I guess you must have warmer weather than here if you wear a t shirt when driving!

Would look even better withe correct design and manufacturer (Nascar style lever buckle). i have no trouble strapping in even with a roof on.
