Replaced the stock seat belts with spare set that I sent to SafetyRestore for rewebbing in yellow. The transaction with SafetyRestore for the most part went smooth. There was a logistics challenge on the return, however they resolved and made it right to me the customer. Definitely recommend them for others considering doing same. Typically they receive, rewebb and return within 24 hours, the hold-up will be the shipping carrier.

There are two videos, first shows entire process from start to finish run 10x speed. This entire process took 15 minutes per side with 5:30 of that spent on releasing the belt attachment to the car. Second video is cut to show the different steps with closer shots to help understand the process.

Disconnect negative battery terminal just because you are messing with the safety system and there are electrical connections.

For the lower latch, easiest is to push allen key all the way into the lower hole on latch, pull back tape a bit on the side to expose a small hole. Push the cable and latch mechanism together and hold like that, push small screwdriver in side hole, you won't miss the latch.

Remove the belt cover with four screws then there is one big bolt that you'll need a T50 torx to remove, note that this screw will have a ground wire on it. The other connection is held in place by the plastic piece you can see me pull-out. Once that is pulled out the connector is easy to pop-off.

The top triangle thing holding belt near roof has two indents on back of the plastic piece, you can slide a small screw driver up the back to pop off those. The connector to the car uses same torx bit as the lower.

Once you do these couple steps, reverse the process to install new belts.

Speed run - Full process in 1 minute

Detailed process with closer camera in 6 minutes

Unlatching the anchor hook was a bit tricky for me. I did a detailed DIY for another member here just on that latching mechanism.

for those watching, there is a grounding wire on one of the mounting bolts to the seatbelt roller mount. Just be sure to reattach that eyelet for the grounding wire on one of the seatbelt roller bolts.

Thanks for the video, the koshi carbon pieces need the lower shrouds swapped and basically the same process is used to a point.
I'm planning the new layered stuff (hexagonally-perforated black alcantara "sleeve" knitted to red webbing underneath... Asking for a custom Quadrifoglio logo cut in the pattern right above the lower clip stop (which will be replaced with a laser etched carbon rivet, AR logo) and another about the place where the belt would end up at around my left shoulder (estimated ~ 3' from lower clip stop).
