Installing seat belts


Recommended Posts

I wanted to share how I upgraded my lap belts to 3 point seat belts in case others were wondering. 


I purchased my seat belts from "Seat Belt Plus". I decided to go with the non retractable style as I was not sure if there would be fitment issues with the bench seat.

First here is a picture of my truck. Its a 1969 




If your truck came with factory lap belts you will need to modify the pillar and install a support plate to allow usage of the 3 point seat belts. Here is what I ordered: 





First off I drilled a hole in the pillar to match the plate. Then I used some wire to thread the plate behind the pillar. Its an easy fit past the headliner. 






I then secured the plates with rivets 




Now your ready to start mounting your new belts...





Using the provided hardware everything is simply bolt in. For the lap belts lower pillar mounting points I simply reused the same hardware. Mine were in decent shape. 






AND here is the end result 





Overall, I am pretty happy with the result. Decent price, good quality and generally easy install!!
