Lightbulb Custom color seat belts?

Has anyone successfully changed the webbing on your seat belts using the stock mounts and pre-tension. I was looking at a porsche the other day with red seat belts and thought i would be a cool idea. I know you can buy webbing but what good is that :/

I don't see why you could not dye seat belts assuming you could remove them.

We have bright red seat belts in our firetrucks....so I can see if I need to turn around and slap the **** out of some new kid for not wearing his. In our Dept., you can be terminated for not wearing one.

Would be pretty cool to have a different color in your car.

I don't think you'll be dying black seat belts to red...and I don't think you should be plastidipping them either, as I suspect the nylon would melt or get weakened.

As far as making them by buying webbing...I hope no one is thinking they can just sew them together and have them be as strong as they're supposed to be.

How about just putting some red electrical tape around them to make pretty stripes and call it a day?

Also, OP, you know your left front tire is a little low on air...just saying!

You can dye black fabric to whatever color, you have to bleach it to white first.

Pain in the ass but it works.

You don't really want to bleach seat belts as I'm sure that process would affect their strength...maybe only minimally in the webbing itself, but certainly the stitching.

Really, I can't see dying, needing bleaching first, to be a good idea. Bleach is really corrosive.

Im not really sure about the seatbelts, they are pretty dense but I have done it before with regular cotton cloth, as well as with leather, without ill effects.
