I am putting this together as a resource for pictures of different carseats and installations. I hope people find it helpful.

Britax Regent Long Belt Path installation with Lap shoulder belt in 2005 Dodge Ram, done without the cover on so you can see where the belt actually goes.

The seat installed:

The date of Manufacter, serial number ect is located just to the side of the adjuster strap. You will need this information if you ever call Britax for replacement parts, ect.

You route the vehicle seatbelt over the side of the seat. (The extra strap you see is the LATCH strap on the Regent.)

The shoulder belt will go up the Regent, it won't stay with the lap belt.

The vehicle seatbelt is then routed around the back of the Regent to come out and go through the same hole on the opposite side. It goes completely AROUND the PLASTIC part of the seat. As you can see here. It does not just go behind the cover or foam, but completely behind the plastic shell of the seat. (The extra strap you see is the LATCH strap on the Regent)

When you route the vehicle seatbelt behind the shell of the seat it goes COMPLETELY around it. Around the harness straps, not in between them and the shell of the seat. (The extra strap over by the recline bar is the LATCH strap.)

It comes out from behind the seat back through the hole.

Bringing it back over the other side and buckling it.
