Adding seat belt guides to "racing seats"

Hi guys - I don't normally venture into the this area too often, but I have a funny feeling you can help.

I recently picked up these seats to replace my worn-out buckets in my '80 Camaro. Obviously, there are no seat belt guides as they are intended to be used with harnesses - which my street car doesn't have.

Is it possible to add seat belt guides to this style of seat without major surgery?

If there is a place under the seat cover where you can attach a guide, like the metal part of the frame, there would be no problem. One way or another, you need to take the seat cover off to find such a place, remove the foam where the guide will go, drill holes to accept the screws for the guide and re-assemble the seat.
