Front seat belts
« on: May 15, 2006, 09:23:34 PM »
I need front seat belts for my 77 TA.  I checked with Snake Oyl and they do not have that year available.  Any ideas?

What condition do they need to be. Perfect, NOS, used in good shape??? I can get the front for you... but they would be used and in good condition. Is there a specific color. There is also a set on Ebay right now. RED tho.

I'm looking for black.  They don't need to be brand new, but I would like them to be in very nice shape.  The ones I have right now are somewhat faded and curled.  Let me know if you know of any - thanks for your help!

If you've got red interior...go with red.  When I was ordering my car in November 1977, the sales guy asked me if I wanted color coordinated seat belts or black.  Since I was getting tan interior.....of course I wanted the seat belts to match....after all it was the 70's!!!!  I figured it was a way for GM to get another 15 or 25 dollars out of me.  I think matching belts is the way to go....but that's just me.

Did you see Maddogs car on the TA forum?  Jason went through all the work to make that car a show piece....and what does the owner what installed with his tan interior?  Black seat belts...cause that's the way it came from the factory....well, his car came with a delco radio in the dash...and now he has an ugly black plate there instead because he installed a hidden state of the art stereo.  He got lots of comments on the seat belts.  But everyone is different and he now has a beautiful car built just the way he wanted it.  But my seat belts match my interior...black of course.

I'll see what I can round up. It'll be after the 18th of June tho before I can do it. Okay???

Thanks for the responses.  I am in the process of changing my interior to black.  Even though the interior was red, the seat belts were already black.  I checked them out closely while I was putting everything together, and decided I'll probably keep them for now - I used some SEM black on the faded areas and that helped a lot.  However, if you do see a really nice set of black ones, I'm always subject to change my mind (again)!  Thanks!

A big, fat, smelly magic marker will do the trick on faded black belts! B.T.W., I still have the original tan interior in the El Camino, and the belts are black.

So, if you ordered black interior, did GM give you get tan seats belts unless you upgraded to black :D
