      I did it in my 94' SL2. Its a really simple swap, you just need the manual belts and trim from a 95'-96' SC2. Pull all of the power crap, and then put the manual stuff in its place. If you need me to elaborate I will... only detail, on my car at least, was you need to drill a new whole in the trim piece where the belt is bolted to the pillar.

        Hmmm, now that is interesting.

        In my 93SC1 (and SC2) I removed the auto belts in favor of a harness setup. I then decided to do the same for the passanger side and just install the manual setup from a '96SC1 I had in the yard. After I removed the parts from both cars I was ready to re-install the 96 parts in. Every thing matched up except where the seat belt roller thing sits in the wall behind the door. The mounts were different and I would have to weld something in place to make that work in my '93.

        I would love so see pics of the swap in your car. Now I notice you have a sedan, so that might be different but it damn sure did not work for my coupe. As of right now it just has the lap belt for the passanger. I want to upgrade my harness and will probably just move it over to the passanger side.

        Turbosc2 - as was mentioned removal is easy. You just have to remove all the 10mm bolts holding the mouse tracks on both sides, then follow the wiring down to the motors and unplug and unbolt them. There is nothing to it. As I mentioned above, re-installing oem belts from second gens proved to be a problem but I may look into it again.

            i think you have to drill a hole in the b pillar to mount the top of the belt to. then weld a nut or something there, bolt it up. enjoy no auto belts.

                    I think you'll need either a 45 or 50 torx bit to remove the manual belt as well.
