I haven't done this (I confess I'm not much of a seat-belt wearer), but it seems that if you could find a long-enough belt with a floor-mount tensioner, you could attach it to the floor behind the seat (somewhere near the base of the B-pillar or B-pillar stub) and have the tab end come up over the back of the seat through a loop (kind of like an epaulet on a shirt). I would think that'd look okay.
