Seat belts for stock bench seat, purchase and install info

Seat belts for stock bench seat, purchase and install info 7-2011. Installing in a '64. You need 74” for lap belt and 140” for 3 point shoulder belts. After searching and reading on this site and the web I decided to go with http://www.seatbeltplanet.com. I used the dims from the factory install manual photo from another post here. I talked to Steve at seatbeltplanet. After getting his advice, I went with 142” shoulder belt. I had them make the floppy end 22” rather than the standard 20” so when my son moves the seat forward, he can still easily latch the buckle. We also used the same hole for mounting both ends of the retractable belt. We went with grade 8 bolts here. We also straightened the angle bracket so when the retractor was mounted on the sloped part of the floor it would be plumb. We used grade 5 from them for the rest. My seat is at the upholster now. I ordered the belts Wed. around noon and got them Friday evening.

The following is a copy and paste of the invoice for the items I bought from http://www.seatbeltplanet.com

Thank you very much for posting this info. Looks like they fit quite well. Post some more pics once you get your seat back in there.

We got the seat reinstalled. We are very happy with it. Just need to paint the steering wheel and get a floor mat or carpet.

A few Chevrolet Accessories stickers on top and they'd almost look original.
