I wasn't happy with the standard seat belt receivers - they fouled the tunnel and I didn't like how the belt went over the side of the recaro seat meaning that the lap belt wasn't snug. So I fitted the redundant rear seat belt receivers. By cutting away the plastic to expose the webbing these were flexible enough so that they could be routed through the hole in the seat. By also routing the belt through the other side, the lap belt now acts as it should when using the 3 point belt.

You can see the receiver protruding through the seat hole in this pic:



The only down side is that it might be difficult to use for any one with a fuller figure

Bill,

if you are by any chance anywhere close to the NY metro area, I could stop by and help you.

car looks great.

i think we should create a single how-to thread to strip out a stock 964 interior and install RS carpets, roll bar, seats, harnesses , etc.
this would be a great reference as many people here are doing this project.

agreed, the seats alone seem to be a black art

Recaro Profi SPG XL x2 also...

Recaro ALUMINIUM sidemounts (maybe there are different to your stateside incorrectly spelt ones )

On hang on - i just remembered something. I bolted all of that direct to the floor, i dont need to slide the seats, and wanted the extra height. I still only have just enough helmet clearance...

Any pics of the install??

I also have steel Recaro sidemounts w/ 2 holes in the rear position(1 was drilled by the p/o) the upper one provides too much clearance at the seat base the lower is pretty much the same as the BK sidemounts, maybe worse due to the wide flanges
see below



Slider less may be the way to go here, any tips on that method?

you may find them too high with sliders...

I got the perfect drving position just hard bolted.

i'm 5ft11 and like a close steering wheel.

IIRC i had to have the bases backwards, ie the two holes at front and four at back.

Its not that far forward - but here is a pic of me in the XL's hard bolted.

Bill- Note the ones specified for the Profi XL are aluminum, not steel, pictured in upper right below.
