    Shits strong....im amazed by it. If anything i used it to keep the brackets clean because they were chewed and scratched up from when i drilled the spot welds...

    I tried finding that info but it was all dead.

    That's why I did it the way I did. It works!

    Yeah i might go that route, looks like less hassle overall. And do you mind snapping a pic or two of the L bracket you used? Just trying to figure out what you did there..

    Blaming me for shaking your seats violently... LMFAO. A gentle wiggling should be no issue. I can guarantee you that the force exerted on those welds will be many many times greater than that if you get in an accident. If you were nervous that I shook your seats too much, that means you aren't confident in your work, and those seats shouldn't be sat in, as they are obviously dangerous.

    No, I knew you'd feel that way, because I'm not new here.

    Do the seat belt harnesses have to swap over with the celica seat? and are they compatible with the corolla seat belt & retractor? What needs to be done to remove the seat belt light from the dash after the swap?

    The seat belt warning light harness is different. All I did was ground the seat belt harness so that the car thinks the seat belt is always buckled up/connected.

    You can use your current seat belts.

    Ok, cool, i heard you could also splice your connector from the corolla seat to the celica seat so that the connections will be the same... i guess grounding it is basically the same way, if not easier.

    I haven't actually fixed this issue yet. I need to look at the wiring diagram. The Celica connector has 3 wires and the Corolla has 2. Now, I suppose if you want to have the seat belt light off always. you can do what Cbass did. I'll look into this this weekend.
