I found it easier to swap out the seats and seatbelts on my 79 for a set of 3 point seat and seatbelts from a later model rabbit.  I am not sure but I think that the 3 point set I used had a single reel mounted on the seat which ran up to the anchor point on the door frame.  

  I am beginning to work on a 1982 VW Rabbit diesel that has been just sitting
in my garage for about 5 years. I quit driving it back then because of engine
problems and last Fall before the cold hit I put a diesel engine from a running
diesel Rabbit in it. I am working to get it ready to give to my son for his 16th
  Here's the question. It has a shoulder belt that goes across and clicks
into the door, but there is no lap belt. My wife wants me to put some sort of
lap belt in it before my son gets it. Do any you know how I would do that or
where I would get the belts?
