75' 280C seatbelt, vacuum, door locks Questions

Hello, First I want to say thanks for everyone helping me soo much!
1. Seatbelts. As you can see, all of the male parts of the shoulder seatbelts are there and functional, but their are no female parts. The 2 female buckles that are there are not for the clasps installed. Also, I found an old (rusted lap belt and buckle in back seat) seatbelt pushed under the back seat, so I think the front buckles are for the older ones. So, where can I get the female parts?

2. The door lock thingy (black plastic) in the photo is missing on the passender side. Does anyone know I can get a replacement?

3. Vacuum oh vacuum! I still can not find a vacuum diagram for my car! I found one for another 1975 model and for a few 1977 ones, but none are like my car- they dont have vacuum boosters.. I used the things from the diagrams I have to connect hoses the way I think they should go. But I would really like to know if I did it right. What wouldn't work if I did it wrong?

Thanks you so much for all of your help!
