Lap seat belts

I am going to have my seat reupholstered and while the seat and back are out I am going to install lap belts. I checked on Amazon and eBay and there are many lengths and brands, some just for golf carts. Can anyone tell me what worked for you, length and brand? My truck is a 51 Chevy 3600 and I am a thin guy. I would hate to buy the wrong size and have to send them back.

I used the rear seatbelts off of a chev caprice around 1988-90 fit good ,the centre belt is not retractable but adjusts and the passenger and drivers side retract .

There is a really good write up on here with tons of pics. I used the same belts as the guy in the write up and i am very happy with them. These trucks are kinda tricky to mount belts in with the stock seat frame.

I couldn’t find the exact original write up but if you look at the 6th post down thats the one I’m talking about. They say “giggs” wrote it up. Good pics and process.

They worked Great!
I cut & drilled plates for inside and under for the bolts.

I installed 2 three point and 1 center belt. I also got mine from seatbelts plus. There a bit more but they are made in the USA. Here’s a link to my post on how I did it. [LINK]

Seat belts are not hard. I did the same as Phak. Just make sure that you have something backing up the bolt so the nut/bolt can’t pull through in an accident.
