Yes, of course you can cut off 1 1/2" of seat belt and get it re- sewed. Most people don't know what the DOT specs for sewing seat belt webbing are. Seat belts must be sewed with size 138 bonded nylon sewing thread. Just have them copy the pattern the original was sewed with.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
