The foam was good. I bought the covers (PUI) from boardmember DPASSMORE and had them installed by my upholstery guy.

They are retractable and fit really well. The drivers side bracket is set up to move it away from the gas tank. My tank is in the rear so I'll, probably just modify that bracket to move it back like the passenger one.

Exactly! 8 bolts and about 30 minutes to install.

Re: 68 S/C update.....

I think these may have come from Autoloc, but I'm not sure. They have a picture of a globe in the release button.

Here's some instructions for the Juliano seatbelts in our trucks:
