Seatbelt is Most Uncomfortable

I find the seat-belt in my 99' to be the most uncomfortable seat-belt of all my current vehicles and certainly the most uncomfortable seat-belt I have ever used.

The problem seems to be that there is no height adjustment at the roll-bar point. when I am wearing a T-shirt, the belt is an irritant to my neck. I have been routing it under my left arm instead of over my shoulder in order to tolerate it. Now I am thinking on getting one of those things I used with car seats to hold two layers of the strap together so that I do not have this constant tension under my arm.

How do others deal with this?

They don't bother me, but you could always try these:

Porsche Seat Belt Cover Shoulder Pads Black Cushion Pair | eBay

I bought a pair for the straps on some luggage and while they are clearly Chinese knock-off emblems, they do add padding.

I avoid this by not being short

Seriously, though...I've used those fuzzy things that wrap around the belt in the past when I've had that problem.

Oddly I've never had this problem, and I'm 5'11". Could you maybe raise the seat a hair? My seat is definitely all the way down, but I think I just have a tall torso and short legs.
