It seems to me that listing is just for webbing and some components?

A DIY kit to make seatbelts?

What exactly did you get?

Not sure I'm following you. The link I posted goes to an auction for the H1 belts (it's over now, but you can still see the full listing). Here's a picture of the belts from the ad which are exactly what I put in my car. Nothing "kit like" about it.

Edit: I guess you do have to supply the mounting bolts.

Humm, this is the pic I get.

I am VERY interested in what you got. Can you give me the total length of the reciver from bolt hole to clasp top?

Any chance you can post pictures of these belts installed in your car? Thanks, Joel

I have 3 sets of these to sell ( didn't have readers on when ordering smiling smiley ). They look good (my interior is in pieces so I can't photo installed ). 24 plus shipping per pair - that's what I paid. I can return but want see if you guys want any. You have to source your own bolts.

For the most part, it's exactly the same as how the stock belts install. If I recall correctly, there's a small tab on the back of the belt retractor (maybe 1/4 inch at most) that i lopped off. May have added a washer here or there to get the guide on the wheel arch to swivel. If you have original belts/mounting hardware it should be pretty easy. If you don't have that, let me know and I can take pics of what i have (it's all in bags off the car now, but can take them out and grab some pics).

I have what I think are the original seat belts in the car now.

I would consider these belts for my Spitfire. The reciver strap needs to be very short.

Can somebody give the length from the bolt hole to the reciver buckle for me.

It should be pretty straight-forward then. If you do end up with questions, PM me!

I bought a pair of Don's spares. He shipped them right away and we (my...in five days turning 16...son and I) had them installed within a couple of hours. They install quick - about five minutes per side.

The set Don sent me came well packaged - if these are surplus they've got a long shelf life ahead of them
I had a complete set of the factory TR seatbelt bolts and spacer/washers on one side and the other had stacked thick washers. I'll be tracking down the factory washer/spacers as they make things work better, in particular on the shoulder pivot.

The "receiver end" is a bit more "plasticky" looking then the factory piece. Its good enough for a Humvee, so there's that, but it does look inexpensive. It doesn't bother me in the least as its a reminder of what a smokin deal these things were. The TR receiver mechanism does not interchange with the belt end on the Humvee part, so no hope there.

The receiver end on the Humvee piece is 12 inches long, tip to tip. The TR factory receiver is approx. 14 inches, however its pretty near the same effective length as the TR piece has an angled rod to direct the receiver up and the receiver is larger than the Humvee's piece. The Humvee cable is more flexible and is "bent" to angle up. Line up the two receivers and the ends will line up but take different paths to get there if that makes sense. The receiver is easy to reach and positions itself to be at hand when needed so no complaints. Can't say if this will fit a Spitfire, but I'm guess it will - its a lot less bulky at the end then the TR piece.


All in all a great deal that serves its function well. For concourse folks this ain't your solution but for most others this will work. I needed new belts and wanted retractable since it was the lack of retraction that was causing my Kangols to constantly get tangled. I saw a set at one of the suppliers (retractable) for over $100 and then, same day I was looking these came up - delivered for $32 all in. Count me in as happy with the solution and for the two extra sets Don has, he's great to work with - grab 'em while they're there.

I need a set if you still have them available. My car I am working has no belts.
