Sources for seatbelts
« on: January 05, 2018, 07:40:38 PM »
There are several suppliers out there that all appear to carry pretty much the same thing; “aviation” style lap belts.  These include Andover Restraints, Seat Belt Plant, Seat belt Solutions, Seat Belts Plus, Ssnake-Oyl, Retrobelt and a couple of others I’m forgetting.  The biggest difference seems to be the range of colors available.  Beyond color, price/shipping  and the question of what is in stock, does anyone have any reasons to choose one over another?  In particular, Andover seems to have two lines; a basic line similar to what everyone else has, and a more deluxe “ brand specific” (but no logo) belt that has the same appearance for nearly 2x the price. I’m wondering what that is about.

There is a vast array of colours available down here in Australia, as I am getting some to match the upholstery in my '72.

Going to have the webbing fitted to my Cadillac buckles and other fittings.

It is all to do with the fitting of Retractable Lap/Sash Belts in my '72.

Try Juliano's seat belts --- http://www.julianos.com/Seat-Belts-s/96.htm 
They have a wide selection of seat belt designs including those with the GM logo on the buckle.  Select which style you are interested in and click on it for more info plus their large selection of colors.

Thanks; was not aware of Juliano's, but it looks like they have a good range of colors and their stock, including colors is available quickly, unlike some places, where colors other than black, red or blue are a 3-4 week special order.

I found a nice set of '66 buckles at a junkyard, and sent them to Ssnakoyl for rewebbing. They had a good color  match for my upholstery, and made the length that I wanted.

I like the designs on 64 to 66 buckles, and wanted to stick with Cadillac logos, even though the belts themselves were a retrofit onto my '61.
