The front inertia belts are part number S1790006 and you need the 330mm stalks with the right angle floor mount. approx $100 ea
I also used 200mm Drop Links , part number S1800074 approx $14 ea.
You cannot mount the inertia reel on the same mounting point as the old lap sash as there is too much angle on the belt and the locking function does not work so you need a new mounting point behind the seat.

Since then Hemco have shut their Brunswick shop and now it looks like mail order from Ballarat.
Since the PO had installed a non original belt on the passenger side and mounted the anchor point on the inside of the wheel arch (in front of strut tower) I used that position to keep both sides the same so I did not end up with a hole exposed on one side.
If I recall Hemco also sold mounting kits for such purposes.

i had the reel on the top of the strut tower, a clip on the sidewall and that was factory i think.... im guessing if you find a later 260 2 seater you can just grab the crap off that

Getting close to finishing up with all the welding that I need to do to the car and wanted to get the belts organised before I start to paint (in case welding was required).
Would anyone that has converted to inertia belts be able to post a pic or two of the installation. I'm mainly interested in the reel anchoring and the clip on the sidewall. I have a 73 240Z that I want to replace the belts on. I drove it around a bit before starting the rebuild and did not like the fixed length belts at all.
Thanks in advance,

Are you refering to the pocket that the later models had on the floor for the reel to fit into? I was reading some site that mentioned that the later models had a pocket for the floor reel to fit into. The sites mentioned that you could, if you had access to, do a cut and paste job of the pocket from a late model to an early model. Note that they were talking about US early and late models though.

I should have just gone out and bought the same as Warrens. I'll do that now!
Anyways, I've put these ones up for sale in our classifieds.

Hey Warren, if you have that stuff installed, could you take some pics of the installation so I can get an idea of how/where to put the new mount.

Matt asked for pics regarding how I mounted the inertia reel belts. Since I cannot upload photo's (a question for Gav in other forum) I will post them here.

Thank you very much for the photos, exactly what I wanted to see. The installation looks neat and I think I like the idea of mounting the real to the wheel arch rather than building a bracket for the top of the strut tower.
