Installing 5pt harnesses in pickup?

Hey, I just picked up some M&H 5pt. racing harnesses to go in my 1st gen S-10 standard cab pickup, and I've never installed a set before. I'm not running quick enough to require them, but I'd like to get them in for my safety reasons.

So I understand how they mate and are supposed to look, but I'm not sure where to attach each end to. I would imagine the right and left hip belts can mount to where the stock seatbelts came off of. From there, I have no idea where I should attach the over-shoulder harnesses and the bottom crotch one.

This is on a std. cab pickup with no rollbar/cage.
Does anyone have any good ideas or even pictures of an install? What's typical?

IF you didnt get the installion instructions with them try manuf web site if possible. also sinc this is a standard cab how much space is behind the seat? I put 4pt in my crusier and the instructions had guide lines about distance behind the driver and where the shoulder straps should pull from.
I realize this isnt much help but they need to fit properly as you know.
