I created studs in my car.I just drilled holes in the tunnel,on both sides of the shift joint cover,then stuck bolts through the holes from the inside out.Put a nut on the outside and had a stud to hang the seat belt on.On the outboard belts I used a backer behind the bolt as the metal is thinner there.I used lock nuts to hold the belts so they can swivel.I would have welded mounts in normally,but the car had the carpets glued in and I did not want to take the time to protect it,and my wife was waiting to use the car.By the way,I still have the chassis the dune buggy body flew off of,and I am going to use it under a Deserter buggy body I have,or under the new TD kit I have.
