Have a classic car with a bench that only has a lap belt.

Instead of replacing the whole belt system (newer 3 point seat belt), are there any options to install just the upper body restraint, in addition to what is already there? Or is this a sloppy solution?

What is your specific application. Aftermarket suppliers usually have a complete 3 point seat belt. I can better answer your question with the make model info –  Move more comments link to top Jan 7 '13 at 4:41
@Larry: it's a mid 60's c10 with what I believe is a mid 70's bench and laps belts. –  Greg McNulty Jan 7 '13 at 22:17

Weasco sells retro fit belts with detailed instruction for 3 point belts http://www.wescoperformance.com/retrofit-seat-belts-shoulder-mt-door.html They include models for convertables and sedans. You can select just the shoulder belt add on or a new complete belt system.
