this is the rear bench underneath the seats.. is this the bolt i connect to? I assume you want to stick the harness to here? If so dont stick the harness to where the rear seltbelts mout this picture shows its the rear setabelt top mount its much better in the even of a front end crash the belt is much more comfortable. In a side on crash though it probably wont be as safe. The best idea is to get a bar across the rear strut tops and use that as a mounting point. However as you can see I use that point Ive used the one you pointed out but its more comfortable in this point.

ok so by the handbrake... i connect it to this bolt... Yep see my picture below. I only have a drivers side harness (incase your wondering).

theres this bolt underneath the plastic.. Nope dont need that you bolt the seat as you have done (or see my pics below) to the old rails. Then bolt the harness to the back rear belts as I said above then to the old seatbelt buckle point then on the other side to the rail used for the seatbelt to wrap around.

From the picture it doesnt look like you have those eyelet things although they usually come wih the harness kit. If not Demon Tweeks sell them for £1.25 each ex vat (youll need 3 if your using a 4 point harness (which it looks like you are) or 4 if you have a 5 point harness (the last one is stuck under the car with a strenthening plate (Demon Tweeks again) or bigger plate under the car.

The pics of my car will look unusual for comaprison as there is very little in it but it should give you an idea.
