    '73Resto: Finishing details - question

    Can someone tell me if the '73S had rear seat straps like the '71's did to hold up/back the seatbacks and lash them to the tiedowns onthe rear interior deck?

    My neighbors orig '71T has them, and they are quite nice for hold those seatbacks up when hauling around the kiddies (often in both our cases).

    If anyone has a pic out of a '73 I'd appreciate it.

    All early 911's had 'em originally...it wasn't a lashdown, tho. It was leather straps with snap attachments...female snap on the leather straps that are hooked to the rear seatbacks, snap into a male snap when shelf is down. Also a male snap on the rear package shelf, under the window. Your chosen restorer doesn't know this????

    Chris,

    I sent a pic of one of the "Exxon Valdez" rear seat straps to you via email. It appears that I have run out of cyber space to host pics. I wonder how that happened?

    Paul,

    I haven't asked him yet. I usually get the 'truth' here, then bring it up with him. Helps me gauge the 'honesty and knowlege' in his answers.

    Shawn - thanks. I'll check my mail. Did you find your 2.2L project yet?

    Shawn,
    Thanks for the pics. I think they might be different for a '73 than in a '67.

    Robert - On Shawn's, the straps look sewn into the back seam between the edge of the carpet (on the seat back's backside) and the leather (on the frontside). Do you know the part # and how they are mounted (praying its a screw or something easy to mount)?
