    ok, I want to install a 5 pt harness...and would prefer to keep the stock seats in my '85. To that end, I need to put a place in the stock seat for the shoulder belt to come through (y-style belt).

    LONG ago I saw "seat grommets" on the www that were just for said purpose. Anyone know where I might find them now? How hard are they to put in? I am somewhat crafty, and would prefer to save $$$ when I can (ie, skip spendy professional installations if possible!). Any ideas/info? Lemme know,

    I remember ordering a seat belt escution (bezel) for a bench seat on an 88-up truck. It finishes the hole in the seat bottom
    where the seat belt buckle comes through. I'll make my self a note & check it out at work in a.m.-Jim
