Default 69 Seatbelt Carpet Grommet Location/Installation Help

Hi,
I need some help in determining where the carpet seatbelt grommets are located (1969). My attempt was simply to locate them over the steel thru bracket that the seatbelt comes up through but I wanted to see if anyone has in guidance on the best way to install them. Pictures would be a great help! Thanks!

The picture above is of my 69 roadster. The car was built Jan 13 1969 and that is the factory installation/original carpet. The placement of the grommets can vary a little in one direction or the other from the few I've observed.

Are you reinstalling the original hard plastic pieces or are those the rubber reproductions? The originals were attached to the carpet under the flap with heavy duty staples. I worked with the rubber replacements and had to use a silicone to keep them in place. I don't like the repros.

They're the rubber repops. Though the old carpet was original, it was missing the grommets. If you zoom in you can see how mine came out. It looks okay. I slowly made my cuts until it fit. They don't fall out or anything. I may put a dab of glue in there but we'll see how they work.
