    Hey Warren, too bad you don't have a "drop-top" anymore since someone *cough Jay Kavanagh cough* decided to permanently install a hard top.

    This is firmly a aftermarket seat issue that I bet could be fixed safely with a bit of fabricating to make a new seat belt mount that is a few inches higher.
