2 mm wide seat belt matl. for ProTech racing harness

Recommended Posts

ProTech 5-point racing harness hardware requires seatbelt material that is 2 mm wide.  What to use?  I have heard vinyl can be used.  Any pointers?  Thanks

I've found some 3mm very finely-woven ribbon that looks perfect for the old style black (WW II vintage) aircraft belts used in period cars.

I'd suggest looking for a fine-quality ribbon, spraying it with a fixative (like for charcoal...or hair spray) so the edges don't unravel, and slicing 2mm strips off with a new sharp X-acto and a steel straightedge,

I know some people also use masking tape or the old-style electrical tape that has a visible weave.

I use masking tape to make my seat belts using the photo etched hardware. It can be painted any color you want and looks good as well.
