    Removing Stock Seatbelts

    This coming winter my project is going to be "freshening up" the interior of the Trans Am. Here's what I have in the works:

    - New Carpet
    - 6-Point Roll Cage
    - Racing Style Seats
    - 5-Point Harnesses
    - New Stereo System (everything from head unit to speakers)

    The only snag I'm hitting on is what to do with the stock seat belts for the front seats (I've already removed the rear seats and seat belts). Should I leave them in (illegal to use anything but stock seat belts on the street) or take them out and use my harness as my everyday seatbelt?

    i think no oem seatbelts would look better but for many reasons it would be better to keep them..what you could do is see if the seat belts will fit behind the interior panel..there is a big piece of Styrofoam behind it and i am sure you could cut a small part out to hold the actual clip part of the belt....you know what i am trying to say ?

    When you go to install that new carpet, make sure the finished / bound edge is located at the rear of the car. Don't ask me how I know this. . .

    i would say leave them in the car, with the racing style seats the belt wont be run through the guide as it is on the stock one so the belt should retract all the way up to the pillar. when not in use they should just rest right up against the pillar and pretty much be outta sight outta mind
