Bolts may not be inserted through webbing for mounting.  Seat belt webbing that comes into contact with any sharp or un-radiused metal edge must be protected from that edge by means of push on grip vinyl trim.  The areas of concern are the webbing slots in the metal racing seats.  All the seat manufacturers either roll the edge or supply the seat with trim protecting the webbing from abrasion or cutting under impact conditions.  Webbing entry slots into the seat with an existing metal roll of 1/8 inch smooth radius will not require vinyl trim.  The areas where the webbing slot has been enlarged by filing or cutting are of particular concern.  In most instances the edges have been left sharp, increasing the incidence of belt failure.  As racing seat belts are subjected to severe conditions, it is required that worn/frayed belts are replaced immediately, and encouraged that undamaged belts are replaced every 24 months.  The date sewn into the webbing should be used as a guide.  Where the seat belt date is known to be "new old Stock", it is acceptable practice to extend the replacement date on that set of belts to 36 months from date of manufacture.  Damaged belts will not be permitted.  The driver's seat must be securely fastened to frame or cage in six spots, with a minimum of six 3/8" bolts, four on bottom and two on the seat back.  All seats must have a minimum 1/8" steel plate under and up the back 4" and be as wide as seat.  The seat must be one piece high back type only.  The seat must be made of aluminum only (no fiberglass).
