Seatbelts are interchangeable with 1981-1987 Isuzu P'ups. Don't try to get just the retractor, get the whole thing. And since the federal regs changed through the years, seatbelt behavior may have changed. I don't know if your '81 seatbelts do a one-way ratchet thing, or if they allow two-way movement. Seems like the early retract systems were like boa constrictors, once it took up slack, you were pinned in. ;)

I'm curious about seats, too. I've heard of lots of different ones being used, but I just don't know how much work is required. One guy even put in leather seats from a Cadillac Seville. :lol:
