CJ7 Seat Belt mounts HELP!!

My seat belt mounts are shot! I am going to replace the side panels and i called Omix-Ada in Ga and they said seat belt mounts are not on the side panels.
I saw on another thread LEVE referred to them as Hard Door Post Piller??
Does anyone know if someone sells these as I have had no luck finding them or am I going to have to go to a junkyard?
One thing does suck about living in the Keys

LACK OF JUNKYARDS!

Re: CJ7 Seat Belt mounts HELP!!

This part is welded t the side of the tub... so finding them in a junk yard is going to be destructive to the donor, an likely to the part. It's also a stiffener for the side of the tub.

When I had my OEM Metal body the pillars did rust at the bottom. To cure the problem I:

1. Bought took some 3/16" material 9" long
2. Bent it into an "L" shape and welded gussets on the sides to incease strength and prevent bending.
3. Drilled a hole for the seatbelt nut assembly and locating pin at the OEM height.
4. Welded a nut on the backside to recieve the seatbelt retractor assembly
5. Cut the OEM pillar just above the seatbelt reactor nut.
6. Welded the "L" assembly to the floor (seam welded) and the pillar.
7. Drilled and inserted two 3/8" bolts and 1" washers through the floor as backup to the welds.
8. Primed.
9. Painted.

These parts are avaliable at the dealer for about $60, if I remember right.

I find it hard to believe no one else has any input on this subject?

Patch the pillar, put in a full rollcage, and mount your seats and a set of racing harnesses to the cage.

It's not stock, but will be stronger than stock and look awesome.
