Seat belts installed on the Beetle

When I received the car I had only inner belts in the rear and passenger from 3 point but no receiving end. Driver side had nothing. Picked up the 3 point set off JBugs. Install was a bit confusing at first as most directions I saw online were for earlier or later years. Found one youtube video that was pretty helpful which answered some questions about nut bolt crush washer order I had as well as bracket orientation.

It works but its still a bit tricky to pull them at times. Going to give these brackets a try to see if it helps out.

The rear seat belts need the buckle flipped to orient correctly. Taking the plastic cap off them helps with this. In the end they turned out great and give me a nice piece of mind.
