I thought I'd post a few pics, in hopes it'll help others down the road. I wanted to install a set of retractable 3-point seatbelts in my fastback and use the factory holes. I ended up getting a set of Wesco belts, with shoulder extension: http://wescoperformance.stores.yahoo.net/conversion-van-seat-belt.html (product WELR-L, in black, with 8" sleeve for bucket seats) The installation was pretty simple, although save your money and DON'T buy their hardware kit. A few washers and grade-8 bolts do the trick -- you don't need any of the brackets they provide, and thankfully I did have my own box 'o bolts because the shoulder strap hole in the Mustang didn't match any of their bolts. Measure three times, cut once. I didn't have a hole in my headliner already: Remove original belts. Note the big torx bit, although mine came off with a 1/4" allen key very easily as they were not in very tight. Admire your new seat belts: I installed the shoulder strap extender first: Then install the base retractor, and the 'arm' that connects to the lap belt: All done! It's amazing how "secure" one feels with a retractable shoulder strap: You can see the arm where the lap belt clicks into, near the center console. It peeks up, with just enough room for your hand to press the release button. Turned out not too bad. I prefer the belts with the shoulder extension, just to get the height correct where the belt comes down to my neck. Nobody is ever going to use my back seat, but if they do, it's not too much of a hurdle to get in there with the belt. :thumbup1:
