Seat belt dyed

Can I dye seat belts to match my interior? If so, whats the best way to do it? Is there a good color to start with? I need them to be a creme color. Everything on EBay is black, blue or red.

Safety regs prohibit dying seat belts so no reputable shop will do it for you. They sell new replacement webbing in any color and it doesn't cost the national debt. Check with a local upholstery shop. I'm sure you can find one that will replace your existing webbing.

Seat belts are usually nylon and upholstery paint doesn't stick real well to nylon. If memory serves safety regs do not permit coloring the belts. I died a pair of blue belts to black on a 69 camaro about 20 yrs ago and results were maginal. The dye makes the belts stiff and will constantly wear off revealing the original color.

There are allot of companies certified to re-web seat belts and I would go with that. Beltmaster in Ashland, Oregon does a nice job, they do airplane belts too!

I was just looking through my Julianos catalog today. They have lap belts in an "ivory" color, same basic thing as creme. Their website doesnt show this ivory color, but i have their brand new catalog and like i said, they have ivory.
