This belt is really frayed and shot, I know he wants to replace it, maybe the passenger side as well, as it's also pretty bad. Is their a name for the person in San Diego above??? Is it OK to call?

I did contact the Mercedes outfit in Irvine, CA; they want $365 for the whole assembly, was hoping to do a little better than that, if possible? And yes, he'd be content with just the webbing part, the buckles are OK.

Maybe you can figure out how to stitch this up. ???

Look at this on eBay:

2 Inch Seat-belt Black Polyester Heavy Webbing Closeout, 5 Yards

Ahhhhhhh, here we go. Try this:

3 Point Retractable Lap & Shoulder Seatbelts : 3 Point Retractable Lap & Shoulder Seatbelts : Replacement Seatbelts, Seat Belts, Retractable Seat Belts, and Seatbelt Extenders @ SeatBeltsPlus.co

The ones I bought were $76 per set. Heckuva lot cheaper (and new) than others I had looked at

I think he wants to keep the original buckles on this thing, does any body make seat belts out of the eBay webbing, with the buckles he already has?? Pardon my ignorance guys, I'm the middle man here, and I report to him what you tell me, and then I report here what he says, a bit confusing. He would be fine with an entire seat belt, but for something like half of the $350 asking price. I guess what I'm looking for is a used Mercedes seat belt in reasonable condition, does not have to be factory fresh.

Well, if he's looking for originality with period correct materials and colors, spend the $350 or so at the classic center. If he's looking to revamp his already installed ones, get a bottle of shoe polish and recolor the things. If he wants affordable replacements for a safety device, use the website I suggested and keep the old ones in a box somewhere. When he sells the car or passes it on, he can legitimately say the car is able to be restored to original condition by reinstalling the old ones (the ones I installed used the original mounting hardware, didn't require cutting or welding, and took me 10 minutes perside). Another option is to get something from a junk yard.

There's probably a vendor who does somewhere on the web. Look through your phone book and find furniture reupholsterers, boat interior refurbishers, etc etc. They have the high strength thread and machines to sew them with - bring the new webbing, the old gear as examples, and move the buckles over that way.

There are a few shops that provide refurbishment. No small local shop would do belts, due to the liability should they fail. If you can find your own industrial sewing machine, you could use webbing to make your own.

You can send your old stuff to these guys
