    Hello all. Questions about seat belts. I believe I have the correct “original” parts for the seat belts. Problem is is that I’d like some help, pictures especially, to help guide me through where exactly the belts go. I have included some pics of what I have. I would love it if someone with the same, or similar car, could post some pics of how their seatbelts are mounted and where. I believe I have seen the retractable piece mounted under the carpet which may be why I haven’t found a plastic cover for it. I would have thought that if it WAS to be mounted under the carpet that the carpet would have had a “bump out” to allow for it. Anyone out there that can help with some visuals would be greatly appreciated!

    ABSOLUTELY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR! Many many thanks! Couple of questions... seeing as you have a hardtop, I am assuming the combo belts for the front drivers and passenger seats are made for a shoulder belt? And it also seems as thought there’s enough males and females for a middle seat. Is this correct and was there in fact a middle seat option? Lastly, do you have any recommendations for where to purchase any of those fiber/cardboard “shells” for the retractable mechanisms? Seems as thought I may need a set! Lol! Again, thanks for all the great pics!

    You're welcome!. Yes, the combos on the fronts were for a shoulder belt. Not sure what the convertible has for that. And yes, I have the Buddy seat/armrest in the middle of the front bucket seats, so a third belt was there for seating. As far as where to purchase the fiberboard covers, I have no idea, sorry...
