Default Best place to send seat belts for restoration.

Hi,

Looking for recommendations on where I should send my original black 1966 Chevelle seat belts to be restored.

Thanks,
Mike

Snake Oyl or do them yourself.

Here is a link of some belts I did for my Nova a few years back. (Go forward/backward a page to see all info)

Seat Belts - Don Krebs (eBay Seller: Stllobo)
For seat belt restorations and correct date coding of sewn tags, I would recommend Don Krebs who deals in restored Seat Belts & Steering Columns through eBay. I have used Don with great results although he can be a little backed up at times. Definitely worth the wait as his quality is top notch. Located in Salem, OH Telephone (727) 580-4518

Visit Don's eBay store here...

Hi Guys, Snake Oil often uses reproduction tags and webbing. If you really want the best in the business go to Seatbelt Sity (yes with an S). Charlie Santorelli has been at the center of the seat belt business for like 35 yrs. Great guy with a great product.

Anyone heard from Don Krebs?

Took my money 4 months ago for restored seatbelts and claimed 3-6 weeks to ship and now avoiding calls. Based on a google search seems this is common behavior.

I used to use Don but quit for the reasons stated above. Did great work but very undependable. I then found Sharon's Web and they have been great! Great turnaround time and superior product. They do paint the plastic buckle covers which I am not real fond of but otherwise very nice.

Unless you have some sort of powerful connections you can kiss that money goodby.

That scumbag took my money for belts in 2017 with big promises, then crickets. Then number no longer in service. A friend in the resto business gave me his new number and leaned on him multiple times to refund me, promises to friend but crickets to me. The only time I have been scammed in this hobby.

Fortunately, scumbag promised all new belts so I still had my originals.

In the end I was referred to Charley Santorelli, he restored my original belts using NOS parts, excellent service!! - Bill W

Charley Santorelli completely wasted my time & cost me shipping both ways. I sent him detailed photo's of my belts before I even sent them to him & then after he got them he told me they were not worth restoring.

Santorelli restored several sets of belts for me. I was very pleased with his work, but took a looonnnggg time & it’s hard to put up with his attitude. Switched to Clete Marquardt - he’s very, very good!
