Low seat backs 2004 GT

Hey all. I'm sure I'm not the only one with this problem. I have a 40th Anniversary Convertible so the seatbelt comes out from the rear passenger upper kick panel. It is way too low and pulls back and down over my neck and left shoulder. I have it running through the loop thingy off of the headrest (the headrest sets way too low too).
I guess my problem is that even though I'm down in the seat my shoulders are still to high/wide for the belt. Is there a taller loop you can buy to replace the stock one or is there a half-way decent replacement high-back seat that I can attach to the power seat frame. I don't want to spend an arm and a leg if possible.
Maybe newer GT seats??

You can most definitely install S197 (2005 or newer Mustang seats). Sounds like you must be a bit tall though so I'm not sure if it will help you out or not - I'm 5'11" so I can kinda relate to the issue you're having with the belt but honestlly it's never bothered me; 6'2" or 3" might be a different story. The seats themself though are lightyears better in every possible way than your current ones.

Here's a pic of mine, just did it a couple weeks ago. The short story is removed the S197 brackets and drilled holes in the seatpan to install the brackets from my old seats. Spliced the wires from the driver side bracket to the switch panel on the new seat; all power functions were retained.


Thanks SoCal2V. I'll be looking into some seats from the yard if I can find some lol. Stay cool H-
Anyone know about this company and these seats


Those look like Ebay seats, amiright? Personally I wouldn't do it, the quality and longevity probably isn't there. Seats like that would be good for a project like if you were building a sandrail. I Googled "KC Speed seats" and all I came up with was a bunch of links for a racetrack in Kansas City MO.
