Re: Restoring OEM Seatbelts

What process to you do to change color, cleaning products , what paint do you use.etc., or have you gone over this in a previous post. I,ve had fairly good luck on my blazer painting door panels and seat belt buckles but would be nice to know what a pro uses.

To change colors of the webbing, they have to get new webbing. I will not use dye to change color of the webbing, it looks like crap. Some people may do it that way, but I won’t.

When I do the belts, I do all that stuff before they are sent for new webbing. Itís certainly a lot easier and less chance of getting something on the new webbing.

Re: Restoring OEM Seatbelts

Just finished up this set of 77 Red.
These were a bit rough, so I picked out a better set that I had and completely stripped these down for through cleaning & freshening up the color. Received New Emblems. They were also sent off for New Webbing.
Here are all the Before Pics

Re: Restoring OEM Seatbelts

Here is a set of 1987 Mahogany belts. These were throughly cleaned & restored, and freshened with color. The webbing appeared that have bleached spots, so the decision was made to send them for New Webbing. The webbing color is slightly lighter than the OEM color, but this is the closest match. They also received better used Emblems & Buckle covers.

Re: Restoring OEM Seatbelts

NOT FOR SALE
These were cleaned & restored for someone. Color is Mandarin Orange, 1977-1978. Not quite finished yet, but mostly. Just waiting on more supplies to finish them.
These were throughly cleaned, rust removal and freshened with the correct color. One of the retractor housing has a crack that is being repaired. One of the buckle sleeves was replaced with a good tan part, and then dyed to match. Buckles received new emblems.
Check out the Before & After pics.
