Well for seat belts I just drilled holes in the floor and used 2, 1/4" thick 2"x2" steel plates to bolt and anchor them to the floor. Then after you have the seat bolted down in the same sort of way you can flip the mounts on the wheel wells opposite of each other and it'll "fold and tumble" just like before except in the opposite direction.
Maybe these pictures will explain it better than I can type it. lol
Now as you can see from the pix I measured once and drilled once therefore my seat isn't perfectly centered. Hence the washers to make the seat bracket sit out from the wheel well enough for the seat to latch into it. But the seat is solid. I trust it more than I trust my driver and front passenger seats. I've had it checked by the fire department to make sure it's safe for my 10 month old daughter and they said it's perfectly fine. And she loves it back there.
Hope this helps, keep us updated on what you decide to do.
