hi there,

Any ideas where i might be able to get the two mentioned sets for my car.

As i understand it, the seatbelts are only available in the USA and i can only find the tracks for the seatbelts and would require the interior components as well as wiring looms etc (if it's going to be difficult though , i won't worry about them) and i have seen electric window kits on ebay for a universal setup (so any car basically).

My main concern is the seatbelts.. if anyone can help me in regards to seatbelt laws and if they are roadworthy for Australia as well as any safety elements i should be worried about such as are they any good in a car accident and not kill me or an occupant in the event of a high speed accident or the such..

any takers from the USA or anyone that has used them from a Ford Festiva 1990 LX as that's where i understand them to be as an accessory and was thinking about putting them in my 1991 Ford Festiva WA 5 door as a bit of a luxury item if they are suitable.

still looking for an original power window kit with loom, switches and window lifter (not sure if that's what they're called) but that's what i'm looking for.

any help from local or overseas sources are welcome.

Also looking for old-school 'Festiva' badge (i know they exist but are rare, unless these were custom-made, but i have seen them.) not the new one, definitely for an old Festiva.

thanks in advance.
