72 delux seat belts rear retractor location

Does anyone have a pic or measurement for the location of the rear seat belt retractor? A picture of them installed or even the hole location.

I am putting a set of 1972 delux seat belts into my '71. The rear retractors require a different rear seat bottom frame (which I have). When I bolted the retractors to the floor, they still hit the rear seat frame. So now I seem to remember the rear retractors are all the way to the side of the floor right next to the side panel, whereas in the '71 holes they are a few inches in from the side.

DOH! Thanks John, any chance you have a measurement? (Is that a current pic?) It looks to me from your picture and after I put the seat in that the '72 bolt location was moved outward by about 4 inches. I plan on making a steal plate to off set the retractor location with out drilling a hole in the floor.

No Doug. Sorry I have no measurements. The pic is a couple years old. From when I was rebuilding it. Not sure on a 71 but you can see the one on the left is real close to the fenderwell. That insulation is only about a half inch thick.

Not a problem, I figured your pic was in the archives. I have enough to go on with your pic to put the retractor close to the outside. Also with the rear seat bottom in, it's apparent it needs to go out farther.
Thanks! Found out there are a couple manufacturing differences from '71 to '71 for this.
