Hey,
5 points are easy to put in. They are
a pain to buckle up everytime in a daily driver
but less then a sec to get out of.
The two belts that go over your chest and
connect into one belt behind your head
(a 'Y' harness)should
mount to a cross bar that is horizontal behind
the seat. This bar is usually part of the roll bar.
Do you already have a roll bar? if so you can
just weld this bar in horizontily along the back of the seats, you can use the other bolt points on the
sides from the original seat belts and
drill a small hole in the floor for the bolt attatchment for the one that goes between your legs up to your belt.........sorry if I'm not making any sense...this is hard to explain but easy to do.....'Deist Saftey' makes great belts
or 'Crow'. Remember to use high grade hardware(washers too!) or it's totally useless.
I have some fat ones (3 wide) I actually found them to be more comefortable than the
smaller ones....... I hope this helps

If in a crash you rip out the the bottom strap that goes between your legs through the pan(it comes with a huge washer---not the Home Depot kind!) you're pretty much screwed
at that point anyways!
It might be best to start with a good roll cage,
(obviously not the 'ricer' kind that only mount to the pan) then the belts you might get later will be more effective.
...back seats? what back seats?!
Oh by the way, it's fun helping girls hook up the middle strap.

It might help to check with any shops that
work on sand rails or dune buggys. They
all have cages. you will need a bigger guage
because your camaro will be much faster and heavier in a roll over. When your cage bolts to the frame you have to get high grade hardware
too (something close to 8) otherwise the roll bar will break loose and
just more of mess to cut you out of in an accident.
Be sure to weld a bottle opener to the cage
for easy access for when you are working on your hotrod in the garage
