I assume it would come on like most auto's.
I was just hoping this interstate owner would see this and know his or hers is not working.
Or someone else might know who the owner is.

If they have a rear-view camera, and if the camera is working, and if they happen to be looking at the monitor screen when they hit the brakes, they should see a flash of red in the monitor; the center brake light is close enough to the camera's fish-eye lens to cause a lens flare when the brake light comes on.

And the sun has gone down and it is dark out and it had just rained and a drip of water is just coming off the camera lens just at the moment he/she is pressing on the break light and so on and so on...

Latest upgrade

In our 2010 interstate

Replacing the second row captain chair adjustable strap seat belts with retractable seat belts.

Newer versions seem to have incorporated into seat.

No more straps hanging all over.

I put a couple of retractors on the aisle side that I had from the 60s before cars came w/ retractors. They're a little bit clunky but better than having belts flopping around. They're just a little spring loaded cylinder that clips onto the belt.

Where did you get your retractors?

If you're going to modify your seat belts, and still want them to be legal, here are the seat belt regulations:

Standard No. 209; Seat belt assemblies. - Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration

Love the teak mat! Made from scratch or cut down from something one could go buy and modify? If you want to make another I am a buyer!

Nice teak matt. Do tell, did you fabricate it or did you buy one and modify?
