When I did mine I unbolted the top roof belt and screwed in the new belt to the existing top anchor and lower anchor and that was it. I left the belt clips in until I installed a new headliner then I removed those clips.

I'm confused. Every 69 coupe had front shoulder belts - federally mandated. http://www.camaros.org/seatbelt.shtml#config

I'm sure if yours didn't have them, someone replaced your headliner at some point and didn't re-install them. Here's the pics from mine that show where the bolts go including the clips and coat hook:

Kurt I believe we are both talking about the combined system all cars have today. Pull the end and both top and lap come together not separate.

If that's the case, he should be clearer with his question so we can help. Kurt and I are thinking he's talking about factory shoulder belts.

Glad to help. It would have only been worded bad if you had meant after market belts. You're good...

Glad to hear it. For anyone that comes across this, from the shoulder harness mount hole closest to the front, 4", 17" & 25" are where the holes are.

Dave, would it be possible to get the pictures?  I am trying to figure out where the shoulder strap mounting bolt holes are and the ones for the piece that holds the excess belt when not in use.  It is a 69 coupe.

Thanks

Sorry, just saw the pictures.  Came in halfway into the topic.  Just need a measurement to find the shoulder belt holes.

Thanks
