Do you have pictures of your installation?
Here are a couple of photos from the installation in my 2WD '67, Pops. I used the factory location of course for the B pillar mounting. Since your '66 does not have those holes already, you can drill yours at any height you want. The plate and nut do come with the kit. A few inches above shoulder height is pretty comfortable, I think.

Thank you Ed. Here's a another question, and then I feel I've covered everything. Are LMC belts two buckle systems (lap then shoulder) or one?

Just one buckle, Pops.
