Ah, okay, that makes sense.

This weekend we (read Tom) will install the steering wheel. My only concern is the airbag in the standard steering wheel. We don't want to set it off and kill Tom in the process.

I don't know when we are installing the four point seat belts, because we will not go upstate for a few weekends. But when there are new pictures to show, I'm not known to keep them for myself........

After 4 hours of work from Tom and me standing by and helping him for an average of 4 minutes, he exchanged the steering wheel and the seat belts into what the car was meant to be. See also my post under the #107 register.

1 advice, donīt forget to close the door before you fasten the seatbelts. This year I had the chance to drive a Challenge Stradale and this was something I forgot to do. You are nailed to the seat so itīs impossible to bend over and close the door

But looks great, this is how itīs meant to be!

Pterps,

I had the same thought. In the Elise I had precisely the same problem. However, to my surprise, you can reach everything in the Spyker and then it dawned on me. The Interior is designed for use with four point seat belts. Everything is in perfect reach, and still nothing feels cramped.

Not entirely true. I bet you can't reach the key

Hans,

You are right. That is the only thing you need to think about in advance.

Is the starting procedure still the same? First pull the switch and last but not least push the button?
