Is it possible in a scim? Has anyone managed it?

Hi -

Martin Port had some made up for his 5a - looked a good job to me. Here's the thread - http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/view ... 41&start=0

Thanks for the link- it would be pretty straightforward to make those myself, which makes the prospect of a Scim being acceptable to SWMBO much easier :D

That’s because it’s in the RSSOC Members Only archive area.

I dont know about other models but on my 6a, as well as rear lap belt mountings there were also threaded upper belt mounting bosses behind the back seats welded onto a very large steel plate inside the rear bodysides.
I used those and also figured a method of mounting inertia reels on another part of the same plate.
