NOPE, you will need to match-up the front seat belt shoulder harness mounting points. They changed them around a few times and the yards will sell you anything.

What exactly does "roof" mean? Do you need a roof skin because yours is rusted or dented? Or do you need the ROOF like cutting it off at the A, B, and C pillars? What exactly are you after?

If yours is dented maybe fixing it would be easier? If you are planning on replacing the whole roof cutting it at the pillars but only need the skin I don't believe any seat belt location would matter.

I am thinking on Monday I can call my parts man at the Chevy dealer who has been with Chevrolet for about 30 years and he will have the answer. The thing is the Buick Lesabre, Olds 98, Pontiac Bonniville, 1977-1988 should all be the same, four door that is.

But let's clear up why you need a roof?
