Plastic v Alloy #MGB Seat Belt Guides

My MGB came with seat belt guides already fitted. These were the guides made from plastic available from the MG Club. They are quite strong but when I reached over the seat I bent and broke one of the guides.

I bought a similar pair of guides but made from aluminium a lot stronger but smaller. Size may not be a problem but due to their shape sat low directly on top of the top of the seat – which rubbed on the leather which i was concerned would eventually damage it.

So fortunately I hadn’t thrown away the broken plastic guides so I modified what was left of them to convert them into a spacer to hold the belt away from the top of the seat backs.

I think the pictures explain the mods.
