    I am looking for a LH silver/grey 3 point seatbelt with a good retractor for my '79 GT. I also need the mount covers for BOTH sides also in silver/grey. Whatcha got?

    Done deal. I bought some from Juliano's., but I still need the covers where the belts bolt to the floor. I need BOTH sides.

    If you are, JUST MAYBE, :rolleyes: interested in a contrast color... I have a set of 3 points in dark Blue, was in my 69 for about a year while the originals were being refurbished.

    If you don't/can't find what you are looking for... check with Page 1 (pythonrestoration.com) . They are not cheap, but you will get what you want.

    They are not for everyone. My 69 sat in a shop from 1979 to 2014... and is rare enough that it needed to be restored to factory. The seat belts were trashed. I found Python Restorations because I couldn't find suitable replacements. Which is why I bit the bullet.

    But for future reference and knowledge... They are not cheap, and will not give you an estimate over the phone. Beyond what the material costs, buckles, etc. You send them in, they make their assessment, and they tell you what its going to cost. Mine were total rebuilds and were several hundred $'s. I cringed when I heard the price. But am very happy with the finished product. Below are the before and after on my belts.

    If you are not doing a factory restoration, or just looking to make the car legal, there are probably less expensive options. If you are doing a Factory, or a resto-mod and need a specific look... they may be an option.

    I have been meaning to get down to GP for a show or two. Only managed to get to Blackberry Festival this year, maybe next year.

    I will check my reciepts when I get home Sunday... I have
    some three points that I used until the originals were done. I believe I got them through CJPONY.

    I broke down and bought the Julianos. They came yesterday and look really good. Color is also a match.
    Still need those covers though, BOTH SIDES. They are the ones that cover the belts where they bolt to the floor.
