Seat belt hole location 58 convert

Hello.
I'm planning to install seatbelts on my 58 impala and am trying to figure out where to drill the holes.
If I use the location in the accessories manual, they windup in the middle of the back passenger foot well. Not a lot of room to begin with.
If I use the same dimensions at the cross brace closer to the front, the holes wind up over the exhaust and the plate covering a drain plug partially.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks. Mark

Welcome to the Team!

Since the 1958-'64 are the same series maybe some one with a newer car can advise where to locate the hole and backing plates.

Here is pictures of the front seat belt bolt locations, hard to see in this small picture but the right hand bolt is sticking up.
