Hello, and I hope someone could help me with this question. I'm restoring my 69 seatbelts, and am looking for new tags to have sewn on them to replace the factory ones which have worn off. I have about 9 tags in exellent shape that I got from a 68 Lincoln, and they match up, but I will be restoring two or three sets after this one, so I would like to know if there is anywhere that these are reproduced. I hope they are, but have a feeling they aren't. Thanks in advance for the help.

not that im aware of your best bet is take it to a shop that specialize in custom stuff and have them sewn on.

seat belts

Mine need redyed. They are faded from the sun. Labels look great.

Where can I get the dye?

I found my back seat belts tucked under the seat and they're covered with that tar like stuff from the sound deadener. Does anyone know the best way to get that off? Would a dry cleaner likely take them and clean them for me?

Please give more info on Ray Harwood. Ssnake-Oyl did good on the first set, but the plastic crome around the buckle is not nearly as durable as the original ones were. I use the car every day, so wear shows.
