Nice work Sean. It’s going to look spot on when it’s finished. I’ve done a bit of vehicle welding in work, I struggled like mad due to how thin the metal is and my inexperience. So I don’t envy you there!

Thanks Peter.
I had a lot of help with the welding as a friend of mine did it for me I just did all the donkey work the cutting and grinding.

Change the seatbelts today wanted something different. So I bought new ones. But the front ones have tensioner on them so I had to remove the webbing from the new ones and fit them to the genuine ones which was not easy but was straight forward.
Image
Vw one
Image

There is a pin that you have to try and get out so you can pull the webbing though.
Image
Image
Image
I shoved a bracket in the reel to stop it from spinning back.
Image
Image
Then I just put the new webbing in and did the reverse to put it back together
Image

Image
Image
Image
Image

Then I fitted them back in the van I think they look ok

Sean, I just read all 89 pages of your thread.
Congratulations!!
Regarding the wiring harness, you had never done this before?
I have in mind a change of engine but the electrical connection really scares me..

Coloured seatbelts... I'd never even considered that, brilliant. Too late for santa so I guess I'll be buying them myself.

@Raph
The wiring harness I have never done before.
I just had to do a lot of looking and reading of wiring diagrams. Swapping the engine was the easy part.
