[TR] Seat belts in TR4A

Quite a few years ago I installed the retractor belts on the "B" post where
the hook was installed. The kit came with a bolt that matched perfectly with
a pipe-like tapered thread. The loop attached to the hoodstick resting post
on top of the wheel-well. I have Miata seats, and it did restrict the
movement backwards to the point that I switched back to the lap belt. I
hesitate in drilling a hole in the wheel-well on top of the shelf.

My wife liked the retractable belts better because they have longer webbing
and, umm, how do I say this nicely, with her larger size it made it easier
to fasten the belt. :)

I'm thinking about the standard three point belts without the retractor, and
installing them the same way to get the benefits of three points, and the
longer webbing of course.
