Ive checked a few posts, the GCR, and the Racequip 6 pt harness instructions and im still a bit confused on best anti submarine belts install.  Ive got a Kirkey aluminum seat.  Originally, i was going to mount to inside bottom and sit on belts but they have bulky adjusters.  Next I thought about behind the seat on the floor and have the belts pass under the seat but not sure if behind the seat is too far ie. Looks like angle would be excessive.  And I dont have room under seat to get behind my chest line as instructions recommend for mounting.  

But from my understanding of GCR I can attach to the stock lap belt eyebolts also.  So both the lap and anti sub belts would be on same eye bolt.  Would I then pass them through the seat side openings and sit on them?  Any recommendations please?

Well found a few more posts.  Looks like im going to try to bolt the sub belt 2” behind the seat hole on the floor under the seat.  My particular sub belt has two belts connected with a fancy adjuster.  Its like this for both sub belts for this particular 6 pt harness.   Im thinking of removing this fancy adjuster bc it wont fit under the seat.  The part of the belt connected to cam lock hopefully will have enough length to connect to a flat mount and three bar adjuster.  Next time I get new belts ill make sure to just get ones with plain sub belts

Hey Carlos, straight down or slightly rear of the seat hole is preferable. Also, make sure the attachment point is strong or use large backing plate[s] meant for harness attachment to secure the belt. This is important because in a forward impact, almost all the force put into the shoulder harnesses is going directly into the anti-sub belt, which is keeping the lap belt where it belongs.
