    Of course I put the headliner in first...and the seat belts have been out of the car for 6 years. Can someone post a photo of their 70-73 or link me to a photo of the seatbelt location where it mounts to the roof?

    70-71 are the same, not sure about 72 but I know 73 isn't the same as 70-71. So what year do you have?

    Here's my 70.

    Lap belt installed in original location in my '71 Z. There are holes in the roof for the screws front and back if you can locate them under your headliner.

    Feel around in the general area of where the bolts should go based on the photos. When you think you find them use a straight pin through one of the perforations and poke around until you are sure you have fond the hole. With some practice you will be able to tell a threaded hole from a hole. Than use the bolt to mark and double confirm the hole location before cutting. A tip; there are two holes close to each other mark with the pins and check the fit to the belt anchor before cutting. This technique works for the sunvisor holes, coat hooks and the dome light screw holes.

    Yesir! I got it. I think the thing that was throwing me off was that I had the aftermarket 3 point Morris belts...and I couldn't find any great images of them so I was confused. I did essentially what you described above and got it. Thanks
