T3 Seatbelt template
First start by cutting the template out, there are 2 supplied, one for the left, one for the right. Align the circles on the template with the dimpled in the bodywork.
 
T3 seatbelt centrepunch.
Centrepunch through the template to mark where to drill the hole for the seatbelt mounting. Yes, we know, there is no template in the picture! I centre punched it lightly and this was me going over the mark.
 
Drill
Using the 5mm drill, drill out the rearmost dimple, this hole will be used to rivet the plate into place.
 
Drill drill drill.
....and then drill the centre popped mark.
 
Punch!Instead of drilling this hole we used a sheet metal punch that bolts together, the bolt in the middle is tightened and it punches a nice clean hole out. You could use a drill bit, a hole saw or a cone cutter/step drill to do this but please be careful not to mark the panel behind!
 
Prime and paint.
Once the hole is punched through then prime and paint any bare metal edges.

Once the paint is dry it's time to slide the mounting plate into place. You'll have to take the rear pillar vent out to do this. Align the plate using the rivet and dimple in the metalwork.
