s13 S13 Manual Seat belt conversion

Today I received some manual seat belts that I swapped into my S13.
It wasn't too difficult for me because I had already taken all my panels off, and the auto seatbelts were removed before I bought the car.

Anyways, my question is about the b-pillar panels. I broke one of mine trying to play with it to see if I could make it work. Say I was to buy JDM or CDM b-pillar panels, would they line up right with the USDM A-pillar and/or rear seat panels? Are the rear seat panels the same? Any Canadians have some pictures of their interior?
Anyone know where I can buy them? Any information would be awesome. Thanks. I really don't wanna cut my panels.

Is it possible to get away with only the b-pillar panels that the top of the seat belt bolts too? I already have belts in there now. I'm just wondering if the panels line up. I can't find anywhere selling these items.

Just get and USDM OEM B-Pillar. Get a longer bolt and washers to strengthen it.
Make a small hole in the B-pillar and it'll look like the manual belts are meant to be there.

There's a thread out here on NICO talking about this, look for it if not I'll take pics of mine later so you can see what I mean.

Yeah I was thinking maybe I can do that. The gap doesn't bother me underneath where the autos used to be, as long as the panels are there. I broke my panels but it will be easier to find USDM ones anyway.

Could you show me a picture? Like with the bolt and stuff, if possible? I couldn't find the pics on Nico. The only pics were from a guy who was rocking it with no panels. Thanks in advance.

Seatbelts that are known to fit: Canadian/JDM S13, S14, Sentra

I have herd of people using rear S14 seat belts, but that's ghetto.

I did all JDM/CDM paneling. For the A-pillar, you want CDM b/c there is no 'shit' handle on them. WIth JDM panels, that handle will be on the driver's side (annoying as fuck).

No. The USDM A-pillar is significantly wider due to autobelts and will not mate up properly with the JDM/CDM B-pillar panels without looking like crap.

I did all my paneling with JDM/CDM panels:

JDM B-pillar, CDM A-pillar:





Plus I had my headliner re-done- you will need to do it as stated up above. Total cost was significantly more than $250 for me all said/done... But I bought all my panels new & had the headliner done by a shop...

I don't remember which Nissan dealer in Canada I bought mine from. Pretty much any of them there will be able to get you the panels you need. Also, you will need to order the B-pillar inserts for the seat belts- they do not come with the new panels.

Everything lines up perfectly.

Not sure of the length but all Nissan seat belt bolts are 7/16-20 UNF... yes not metric. In cars that have normal seat belts Nissan doesn't list the bolts as a separate part number so no easy way to glean the size.

S13 Silvia has the same swivel shoulder belt anchoring style as the S14, even with the little extender arm, the bolt is almost certainly compatible. Or B14.
