Nothing as far as I can see. My 408 has its static front seat belts installed that way.

I added some extra angle steel across the back of the car under the parcel shelf and then mounted the reels horizontally with the lap section bolted to the wheel arch and the catch bolted to the centre channel

hope that helps

do you have and pictures of the lower door seals/ furflex please
