You need to drill all the way through, weld in a sleeve, then bolt through the sleeve.

Are these factory seatbelts or some other type?

Some retractors work when mounted parallel to the vehicles direction of travel. Others work mounted at 90 to the direction of travel.

Hard to tell where they mount with the info provided.

I am trying to do the same thing soon. No hijack - just a quick question: is the bolt long enough that you will put through the cage ?
