Just be aware that in order to make the belts function in a crash the
way they are supposed to do, the floor has to be reinforced adequately.
Kent has done a good job on his car, but until a real-world destructive
crash test is conducted, the reinforcement adequacy is purely an
educated guess. Question is, would you bet your life on what you
install? Because a poorly thought out job could be even more dangerous,
rather than safer.

I used to do engineering testing in a research lab, and on at least one
occasion this included a seat belt pull test.
