    Who's the best to redo my set of 74 black belts. They work fine but are a faded blue color and I'd hate to put them in my car after redoing the entire interior.

    I've heard good things about Ssnake-oyl.

    Whats a job like that cost?

    Not to steal the thread from the original purpose...but will that kind of "resto" fix a retractor that likes to loosen up after a minute or so?

    I’ve heard good and bad about SSNAKE OYL but it was on forums so you never know.
    This lady I’ve heard good about but never tried myself yet:

    yes generally anyone that replaces webbing on seatbelts can also repair/rebuild the retractors for a price (they usually replace the torsion spring)

    Re-webbing and servicing seatbelts on any 40year old car is a really good thing to do, just make sure you find someone that can do it with the proper certification for your state, country etc. Last time I looked into it I was really surprised how many places were repairing and selling belts without the qualifications or paperwork to back it up (essentially upholstery shops) Guess it’s kind of like buying a heidts front end that comes with a ‘not for highway use’ disclaimer

    I went to My Safety Belts in Westfield MA. Depending on where you are in CT, you might want to go there to check it out. That's what I did. I only did shoulder straps on mine and kept the lap portions original. Mine are also 74 black. It was way less than the other recommendations I read at the time. I can't find what I paid but the website shows $75 per strap and that's what I think I paid per side. I could takes pics if interested.

    younda, I think I will be sending my faded original 74 Z28 front black seat belts to the place you listed in this thread. My shoulder portion is faded too. Thanks for posting the “mysafetybelts” website. Please send me a photo of your re-webbed belts.

    So I found an email to confirm it was $75 for shoulder webbing and it was in Westfield MA but it was here:

    https://www.safetyrestore.com/webbing-replacement

    The two places are about a mile from each other based on their addresses and online maps and I don't know if they're associated with each other or maybe the same people.
