3 point. I mentioned that it was difficult to mount the upper point in the door post. To find the right height takes a little thinking. Once done then I drilled a hole for the bolt in the rear door post. Then I made a backing plate that I could drop down inside the post. I welded a nut to the plate to accept the bolt for the upper seat belt point Then I drilled a couple small holes in the post around the hole that I drilled for the mounting bolt. I then slipped the backing plate into the door post and installed the bolt without the upper point of the seat belt. I then welded the backing plate to the door post using the smaller holes I drilled. Then I removed the bolt and added a thick washer followed a lock washer then by the seat belt attachment fitting followed by the special seat belt bolt and cover. The headliner goes under the thick washer.
