3- Point Seat Belts w/o neck rash!


Recommended Posts

bending steel a little bit won't generally affect it's strength. Aluminum is another story.

 

Jeff, I worked with steel all my life and believe me, without knowing what it is, I wasn't going to take that chance on this application. It may well have been fine to look at, but when you stress a material as much as would be needed to reverse that bend and especially without heat to reduce the stresses, I was not taking that chance. Besides, I didn't want that buckle style and the inner seat portion was way too short, so I had other reasons for NOT touching it.

I appreciate your comments though.

Geoff.

Understood. I agree that I would not reverse a sharp bend either.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!
