Hi Mate

Hmm yeah I wasn't sure, about those as mounting points,
The thing is , for now I'm using the standard seat belt and bring it
across the top of the seat and down the side into the OE buckle thats mounted
on the tunnel bolt.

My seats are fixed with Rouge Motorsport runners as such ( prior to painting )

I'm guessing that because of the awkward profile of the MR2 floor, there's probably a small gap between the bottom of those runners and the actual floor towards the rear of the runners, which if true might allow you to weld on a couple of right angle brackets for the seat belt, dependent on the side mount positioning, etc. Might be worth considering. That's got to be better than the small bolt on the tunnel.

No worries, only too happy to help. I'm off now to start wiring up my new budget dash cam.

The Halfords own brand Calcium battery I fitted when I got the car back from the body shop has been getting progressively worse at holding a charge. It finally got to the point that five days after a full charge, the battery simply didn't have enough power available to start the car.

Usual story solenoid was clicking but not enough power to turn over the engine.

As the battery carries a 4 year guarantee, and it had only been fitted for just over two years, it was time to visit the local Halfords branch.

A quick test showed that the storage capacity had dropped by more than 100amps, and I was immediately given a new replacement battery to fit. They did offer to fit in for 10, but unsurprisingly I didn't take them up on that particular offer [Very Happy]

Never the less I was pleasantly surprised that their no quibble guarantee, was just that.
