    355 coupe upper seatbelt mount?

    How did any of you 355 coupe builders secure the upper seatbelt mounting point? Once the sheetmetal is cut away for the rear quarter windows the setbelt mount goes with it. What's left seems a lot weaker and I want to avoid drilling any holes in what's left of the c-pillar. I've got OEM looking seats and don't think a 5-point harness would look right. Any ideas or even better any pictures?
    Thanks

    A lot of people [put the upper seat belt mount up on top of the firewall.

    Check this pic out.* It is not about the seat belt but it shows you how the mounts are put in.

    Don, Not to get side tracked from the original guestion but what car was the top taken from. It really looks to fit nicely.
    Any info would be great.

    With a spyder that would be the only option. I went ahead and put it in the c-pillar.

    EEExotic;

    Not sure where it came from. I had it included in a thread about the targa top that I got and plan on using. It looks like the same top that Paul's Exotics had made a while ago. Not sure if they are still built or not.

    Here is the thread that has it in.

    Cheers
