https://porsche356registry.org/article/33 and a nice discussion of belts here: https://porsche356registry.org/article/33. And check out other ideas including David Jones reinforcement picture in this link: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=45254&hilit=seat+belt

There is indeed a proper way to install 3 point belts in a roadster, I believe. I described it briefly in posts on June 5 2011 under topic "seat belt mounting points" and a couple more photos on May 12 2017 under "356 BT5 seat belts". search for "bill oldham" under authors.
Basically add a strong B pillar (removable) to mount the shoulder point above the seat just as in 911 cabs, and support it laterally and front to back. I am long overdue in writing up an article on this but you can see my roadster at the No meets So next month.
