Mr. Wolfe
I replaced my belts with units from Seatbeltplanet and I love them.
They were simple to install and look great in the car. Would recommend for sure.

I had very good experience with seatbeltplanet.com. I ordered their sample swatches and picked one that matched the rest of red accents in the car. It is best if you keep as much of your original belt hardware as possible. This will ensure they will look OEM after webbing is replaced. I kept the original buckle and only changed the front shoulder loops since the plastic on mine was cracked. Their premium selection of shoulder loops looked to modern and I asked them for their standard line, which looked almost exactly like OEM. They don't list these on their website but they sent me pictures of what they had available.





Thanks!
Andrew

Mr. Wolfe
I ended up ordering this exact setup in black. I will review when it comes.

Placed an order with Seat Belt Planet today...... Thanks for the heads up on the hardware Andrew. It was worth the time to call and speak to someone when ordering versus buying online. Very knowledgeable folks.

I recently had them mail color swatches to me to match up with fabric I'll use soon for my seat inserts.

Hardware looks fine to me. I decided not to use their (Seat Belt Planet) receivers though. My factory receivers look fine and I prefer them. Dropped them off this afternoon for install.

Y'all are probably looking at this color blue and wondering WTF?

That looks like the shade I am ordering (Powder Blue)... Great choice!
So, their standard kit works with the OEM receiver?

I figured I may have been the only person ever to order Powder Blue belts! Ha......... Great choice indeed. That color seemed to be the best match for the plaid fabric I bought for refinishing my seat centers. Kind of a predominantly black accented with a muted yellow and blues.

Yes, the SBP kit works with the OEM receivers.

Same here, I have some plaid fabric for an interior redo. The Navy blue belts were a really good match, but a bit too close to OEM Black ones to make it worth it. Cobalt and Laguna blues were too far off, Powder Blue seemed to be the right shade to make it interesting.

Yes! Very nice. That is going to look great.

My colors are very close (enough) but not exactly perfect. My interior is currently all black. I don't intend to stray too far from that.

You guys are definitely making me jealous of my stock black with red piping.

Nice color choice. Mine aren't a perfect match either but I don't think anyone will complain. Can't wait to see pics of your interior redo.

If anyone is interested in new seatbelts from seatbeltplanet, I am selling mine. The rears were built with the toungue facing the wrong way and I spoke with them today. I am sending the rears back to get fixed, but I will have them back by next week. They are in new condition and I would sell for $500 shipped OBRO. I paid $565.

The reason I am selling mine is because the rears were built wrong and in the meantime I found my stock rears and I wanted to put the car back together. I am selling the complete set.
