    I thought I'd start a new thread rather than hijack "Help with Brackets". This continues the discussion about seatbelt interlock system not being on Canadian exported Camaro's. Here's some things I found in my library.
    Joan's '74 Z28 buildsheet in box 106 says Canada (which on US cars just gets a dash)
    Also listed on the buildsheet is: RPO Z49 Canadian equipment. The description of RPO Z49 Base modification (Canadian mandatory)

    In my discussions with Joan years ago we talked ONLY about the interlock system on the driver's fender, so in regards to the necessary wiring under the seat I don't know.

    Last two photos for Mallard...curious minds

    And my '74 also has that same "Z49 MANDATORY CANADIAN BASE EQUIPMENT MODIFICATIONS" listed from my Vintage documents.

    I would love to find that bypass.... putting on seatbelts just to back the car out is ridiculous.

    And I never even thought to take that off my parts car before it was hauled away. I'm presuming that seat-belt system could be bypassed manually although perhaps not the "cleanest" way of doing it.

    you can always splice the green/black wire and the purple wire together that what the by-pass do
