Happy day, friends!
I'm continuing through my list on my 73 SS wagon, and I'm in need of the front bench seat belt retractors. These mount under the rear legs of the front bench seat, and allow me to install the front seat. The 73s don't have the should belt accessory on them. I will consider any condition or color. If you have a set, please PM me with what you've got and price shipped to 64064
Thank you so much!
Kyle

Kyle - did you find your seat belts yet?
I might be able to help you out & I live in KC also.
I have a complete black vinyl bench seat with black seat belts I took out of my 73 Monte that should bolt right into your 73 Chevelle. Seat belt receivers are the plastic "exploding" type, but everything is intact and in great shape. Seat belts have provisions for the separate shoulder belts. Bench is in good shape also, but has 3 spots where the stiching ripped at seams in driver seat.
I switched interior over to swivel buckets recently.
Let me know if you interested and we can work something out.

Hi Tony, I just sent you a PM. I am still looking for some black bench seat belts.

If anybody else has a beat on any, please let me know. I am actually looking for a full set of black bench seat belts now.
Thank you!

You can re build the "exploding" ones now. There is a kit on ebay. I need to do mine. I will get that kit soon.

After a quick search, I found several places that claim they will make your old belts into brand new. New color matched belts and clean and repair so everything works like new. Has anyone tried one of these type companies?

Snake-Oyl is probably the best known.  But, like in the case with restoring our dashes, it doesn't come cheap (just what I've heard).

Snake oyl does amazing work! I had the passenger side one redone in my sprint because it wouldn’t operate. I just did the basic service and it came back beautiful and functional. I call$ everybody I could find online and they were the only company that would accept the project.

I don’t want to dye any because I don’t want the chance any of them are too stiff, that’s why I sought out some black ones.

Yep...I've tried dying belt straps from one color to another using actual fabric acid dye I bought online that supposedly works on nylon too, and it was a failure (the straps are made with plastic fibers and don't readily absorb dye like a fabric would). However, I had good results when trying to rejuvenate faded black straps with their black dye.

I've found it's very difficult to find used straps that aren't sun faded...so, it's either pay someone to restore what you have with new strapping or, go the universal aftermarket route and make due with something not original to the car.
