Seat Belt Soloutions- Invaluable Pinto Resource!
« on: August 01, 2014, 08:50:03 AM »
I always like to put a plug in for people who do good work for me.


My 1973 Pinto belts were the two part detachable kind. They were too loose to be safe, and looking kind of shabby.


Seatbelt Solutions (www.seatbeltso lutions.com) is the place to go. I wanted belts that looked close to original, but were safer. The sold me new retractors and hangers with the lap and shoulder belts united, like newer cars have.


The fabric color and weave, and the buckle, look absolutely like the originals!


These people fabricate for other vendors like Snake-Oyl, so the price is cheaper than anyone else I talked to. And they are made in Florida, not China!


Pinto belts are not listed on their website, but just talke to Carlos, who can fabricate belts for any vehicle.
1973 Pinto Runabout with upgraded 2.0 liter & 4 speed, and factory sunroof. My first car, now restored, and better than it was when it rolled off the assembly line!

That is a great reference! My '74 Squire had the lap/shoulder belt set-up, but someone cut the shoulder part off. I need a new set for both front seats. Thank you!

One can never have too many Pintos!

Interesting company. I will really only go for the original. Nothing is better than OEM since Ford is the one the backs them and does not want to get sued (they are used to that though). I use

http://www.ssnake-oyl.com/

Affordable? No. Cheaper than hospital bills? Yes. They have done every single Pinto I have, all my Fiats, My Toyota truck and my sisters cars. If there is anywhere you need to spend money people, its your seat belts, not your stereos.

Their work is perfection.
I have many Pintos, I like them....
#1. 1979 Wagon V6 Restored
#2. 1977 Wagon V6 Restored
#3. 1980 Sedan I4 Original
#4. 1974 Pangra Wagon I4 Turbo
#5. 1980 Wagon I4 Restored
#6. 1976 Bobcat Squire Hatchback (Restoring)
...Like i said, I like them.
...and I have 4 Fiats.
