Aftermarket seat question

For those who have installed aftermarket racing seats, how have you connected the wiring harnesses so that you don't get the seat belt or airbag light?

then it's simple:
you need to buy a seatbelt receptacle (they pop up from time to time on eBay) and plug it in the wiring harness.
I have this 2nd receptacle mounted to my race seat, so that I can use my 3 point harness to/from the track

Taking the existing receptacle off from the stock seat and re-attaching it is a major pain in the behind and it's worth the $50 ~ $60 for the extra receptacle for not having to do this

The alternative would be to buy a Durametric and reset the airbag loght when your stock seats are back in

Here is a DIY with pics that I used to install my race seat and avoid the airbag light. Good luck!

Let me know if you need a Brey Krause bracket and sub strap bar. Have one I've mounted but never used.
