The seatbelts in my '78 TD are in rough shape, and I don't think they're stock. I'm wondering what type of belts they came with. Were they just lap belts, or the kind in cars today, or were they some kind of 2-belts system, so you could have a shoulder belt with the hardtop and just lap belts with no top. I'm asking this because it's almost ready to get back on the road, and I don't want to get in trouble for have no seatbelts or the wrong kind.

My 77 Trail Duster has shoulder belts that latch in separately onto the lap belt latch. I've always wonder why they where seperate and not till this post did I think about the top comming off. Uhumm, that makes sense.

The 78 I have now and the 76 Trailduster i did have both had lap belts only I do notice an indentation on the door frame where a shoulder strap might have gone had that option been utilized. I do not know that for sure though. I attatched a shoulder strap seatbelt to the roll bar in my old 76 and it worked out good.

Thanks for the answers everyone, I think I'm gonna run lap belts for now, since that's what the factory gave me. Thanks for clearing that up.
