Default Abracadabra my new Wizard

After over a year of looking with my search having to be put on hold because my sensible car died I've just taken delivery of a full fibreglass wizard at a bargain price






In a wild green original gel coat .with some slight cracking around the bonnet handle and the boot lid fastener.More faded looking in real life.T cut and polish should help
Drivers seat needs needs putting in,
Electric washer needs sorting
Started 1st time without any coaxing after charging the battery may still need a new one.
I,ve managed to find a second hand roof that will need a bit of adjustment to fit as it didn't have one.
1600cc recon engine which needs a service,I want to check the brakes though they seem fine.
I want a rear seat for the kids so will have to make one up.
Has anyone any ideas of how to fit rear belts in one of these.There is a healthy mounting point on the side where the body bolts to the chassis but nothing centrally .Could I bolt or weld to the transmition tunnel?

Lots of thanks to all those who have helped me on my quest.Answered my questions and pointed me in the right direction.

belts in the back will be lap belts, just bolt through and use a propper belt anchor plate.

not a washer and nut.

I just wrote a nice description out, then remembered it was a glass shell!

TBH it's thrown me a bit.

I think the best potion would be something beefy like a piece of 40mm box across the underside of the shell floor, brilled for the securing bolts. make brackets at the end and bolt through the chassis where the shock mounts go.

without looking at mine closer, that's my best '1st thing in the morning' answer.

With longer journeys in mind for those in the back, could you fit some sort of race harness as it would need to be mounted as high as a std 3 point belt? 4/6 point?

you have to remember the shell is fibreglass and so mounting points into steel are non existant.

I recon you can go side to side with a tube bent to clear teh box, bolted into the rear chassis kick ups
