I am currently about to finish an ACES II restauration project, but I still lack the appropriate lap belt as well as the oxygen bottle and its hoses. Furthermore I am looking for the redar hose female connector connecting the hoses from the bottle and the pilot's oxygen fitting. Thank you for your attention!

What style belt are you looking for?  I know the current style ones have the Koch type fitting for its buckles but apparently they had a Frost type fittings in the early days. I picked up a couple belts dated from 1979 that the part number was linked to the ACES-II of the F-16 when I looked it up.  Its Frost fitting is literally only for a lap belt too, cant be used for the parachute risers or the torso harness which is what I had been hoping to do.
