3 point seatbelt

Hey y'all
I want to replace my original lap belts with new 3 point belts . Keeping the original bench seat. I like the "vintage" looking seatbelts with the airplane style chrome buckles.
Can you point me in the right direction?

This is probably a better color for my truck. Can't go wrong with black tho. Anyone on here have any experience with this seatbelt from eBay?

Re: 3 point seatbelt

big window or small window?
big window is hard because of lack of a B pillar
small window is easy, though you'll need to weld in a reinforcement for the shoulder belt

Small window

So I have to weld a simple bracket in, to bolt the shoulder belt to?

Re: 3 point seatbelt

anyone have pics of how they mounted the shoulder belt on their 55-59 small window with stock bench seat?
my interior is already painted, so i dont want to mess up the paint.
i found online someone getting a threaded reinforcement plate behind the spot where the shoulder belt mounts and riveting it in place...
