PenelopeProject is cool... so far.
Talking New Member from PDX! Hey Everybody.

I decided to seek out a specialty forum for my 1990 EX project, Penelope. Looked around and discovered CB7! Like most of you I fell in love with this awesome car at first sight. In joining here I am hoping to learn much about tuning her up, and making her a looker again. We're at 231k miles, I remove the negative terminal every night or else she'll die, if I go above 65 she smells like rotten eggs, and her lap belts don't work... But it's my duty to get her up to snuff again. Here's hoping I learn how to do it from all ya'll.

Welcome to the forum. Pictures are always a good start to show us what you're working on. The lap belts don't work, or the automatic shoulder belts?

It's the lap belts. The passenger side has gone in on occassion, but drivers side has never worked. The sliding shoulder belts work wonderfully, never been a problem there. Once I get my lazy butt out and about in the hour I'll take a few pictures.

The original lap belts on my 90 still retract at 363,000 miles. You might try taking them apart and see if there is something that has gotten inside and is preventing them from retracting. Other choice is to find a set that works (what color is your interior?).
