I'm in the process of figuring all this out using the BK mount which allows you to retain the stock belts if you want for street driving. Biggest problem so far is getting the right seat mounts for the height you like that will also work with the mount and the slider. The mounts in this picture are too low for me and I'm 5'-10. Trying to get other side mounts with BKs help.
Just a bit of a puzzle

I'm very close to having it figured out just need higher seat side mount brackets.

The side mounts you need vary by seat model and Lee at BK has been very helpful <lee@bkauto.com> figuring out what's needed.
May take a day or 2 for him to answer.

If you're a NASA member you can save a lot (15%) by buying from competitionmotorsport.com

After spending a couple hours at competition motorsport and working Friday and Saturday on it, I still don't have a solution that's working for this combination on parts. Looked at a bunch of different side mounts and still no go. Problem is getting side mounts that fit the seat and work with the BK Seat Track Adaptor/slider assembly which has its own set of issues. BK sent side mounts that fit but are too low and said that's all they have. Going to call Sparco Monday to see what they say but it takes a unique style side mount to work with BK Seat Track Adaptor.

Man, I guess I got kinda lucky getting the parts I have. Had to ditch the sliders for headroom, but it all kinda fit together. One hole on each side bracket had to be drilled out, but it was minimal modification overall. It's a puzzle putting it all together, not like buying GM parts that were made specifically for the car.

After working on it the past 3 days it's put together and in the car. Had to elongate the slots on the side brackets, drill 2 holes in the sliders, get some spacer for between the seat and side monuts, longer screws and more washers. Forget having the ultimate driving position adjustment and comfort of the power seats. This driving position is a compromise and will take time to get used to. Have to get the harness now and make sure to get ones with lap belt adjusters by the buckle and not the ones on the sides because they will hit the seat. The left side seat belt/harness attachment is not shown in this pic, it has to go in after the seat is mounted.

I had some of the same issues shown here

Nice work, looks good 👍...

I had to cut the lap belt mount off the harness bar to mount the stock belts, are you using the stock belts too?

Yes I'm keeping the stock belt capability for when I drive on the street. Which is the big benefit of the BK mounts.

If you use the BK Harness bar they have one for stock seats R-1155 and one to mate with their race seat mounts R-1156. The bars on the stock seat ones have a harness mount tab. They also offer a kit for converting from stock to seat mounts.

Ahhhh.... I'm sure that's where I messed up then. Gotta do more research sometimes.

Did you mount your seat level on the side seat mounts or tilt it back 1 hole? Seems to be almost too much of an upright position using level mounting holes in the side seat mounts.

Oh I leaned them back, I think 2 holes actually. It was definitely way to upright mounted even. Very uncomfortable.
