Re: Restoring OEM Seatbelts

Just finished up a nice set of Charcoal Black belts for a forum member.

Re: Restoring OEM Seatbelts

This is a Burgundy set that was cleaned and restored for someone. Throughly cleaned and dyed. Rust removed from the mounts. Retractor mechanisms were cleaned and lube for better retracting. Buckles were also disassembled for through cleaning of debris that get trapped inside the buckles. These turned out quite nice. I didnít take the time to take Before photos, been really busy trying to get everyoneís belts done and shipped out to them.

Going to take a few weeks off on doing anymore belts, although I still have a couple of prior commitment sets to complete. I desperately need to get some projects done around the house this summer. Garage space is needed for an up coming Garage Sale. Plus Big Red needs some undivided attention. I havenít even had time to get her out and stretch her legs this year.

Re: Restoring OEM Seatbelts

These were done for a forum member. They were done in the 77-79 Blue. They were pretty dirty and faded, but in fairly good condition. Throughly cleaned and dyed. Buckles were disassembled for through cleaning, debris and rust removal. New emblems for the buckles.
Here are the Before pics.
