With the seat glued in place, it was time to tighten up the cro... the le...  the middle buckles.  'scuse me, miss.

There, that's better...  er...  In all seriousness, the main problem here is in the moulding.  No, not that bit.  You see, Dakota has a severe arch to her lower spine, which affects how she sits in the seat.  She's probably been over-extending on those squats, and that's going to give her some serious problems in a few years if she doesn't sort that technique.  Unfortunately there's not much I can do about it besides heating her up until she's soft enough to bend, and that was likely to end in disaster, so I didn't bother, I'll just have to go buy a physio figure for when she gets back from the trails.  Although for safety's sake it might be advisable to add an additional strap across the che...  the middle, if she has an accident with the belts like that she could lose an arm.

She fits well enough, but she needs a dashboard, it kinda looks like someone stole her newspaper and she hasn't noticed yet

Fortunately she eats a lot of baked beans.  They're full of protein, plus they keep you warm when you're camping on the trails.

And effective, and visually pleasing.  They look as much like real seatbelts as anything else, and they actually work :)
