VW stuff Available / vanagon retractable seatbelts $40
« on: August 20, 2010, 06:03:46 PM »
I got a pair of seatbelts from a vanagon, I was gonna put them in the bus, I made the brackets to retrofit them for my 78. but I uncovered a rust issue where they bolt to, so I cannot use them.
they are black with the brown plastic covers, all hardware ( nutz and bolts ect..) comes with them.  $40
Joe ,
Im in Massachusetts

also, to retro fit them in a bus, they essentially are mounted upside down, the retractable spindle is on the pedestal next to the seat.

white early bay ( or lowlight) missing the rear luggage carrier, was at the rest stop on 495 near exit 30 something.

day before yessaday, I saw a painted up bay on rt2 being towed, had eyes painted on the windshield!

2 weeks ago I saw a v-gon double cab on rt2 near Sterling Ma. was camoflauge and was also being towed..looked like they were going to the Irving gas station off exit 26.
