Default Seat belt guides

I have a 1995 TA vert and I dont have any holes on the seats or head rests for our seat belt guides to go, don't we use the guides? Would make it look better. Any pics to show yours? thanks

Apparently the LT1 convertibles did NOT have the guides. The other models DID, including the T-top cars. Here are some pictures (which show this on each model). Clearly the 'vert was missing them. I pulled these pictures from my '96 brochure when I had my '96 Formula. By the way, my '01 'vert has the guide holes in the seat. I just broke one accidentally last month so I didn't even have to look. Very inexpensive and the dealer still had them in stock. Not sure what year they changed the convertibles to include the guides. I would guess '98 and up. Hope this info and the pictures helps (just click on them to enlarge a few times).

Mine weren't broken, but I removed them because I didn't like the way they looked. Also swapped the headrests left to right so the residual indentations aren't as visible. It's a wee bit of a further reach to grab the belt, but it's not a DD anyway.

Out of 9 F-body's I've owned I can't recall one of them that had both guides intact, from 1970 to 2002. Count your blessings your car doesn't have them.
