Inertia reel seatbelts

PostPost by: martinbrowning » Mon Oct 31, 2016 4:32 pm

Hi there, Can anybody give me a good recommend for a company that can refurbish a pair of inertia reel seatbelts please?
OK, I'll come clean.....belts are not from my Sprint but an Alfa Spider that is one of my ongoing projects.

I was fortunate enough to have a friend who worked in the dying embers of a famous seat belt manufacturer in North West England - he did mine for the Plus 2 and put modern reels on (hidden behind the rear quarter panels so not seen). Sadly the firm is no more.

Securon may be worth a look - I think they are more into replacements but they service the classic market.

Interestingly I've just bought a Spider S2 - it has fixed Britax belts with the wire stalk and plug in buckles.

I used Safety Belt Services in Bedford for my +2 belts. Good job, quick turnaround and ?97.
Hope it helps, Les
