Original Blue Seat Belts and LH/RH Retractors.  Shoulder belts are still in the car.   All still in good re-useable shape.  Gonna need some TLC but should clean up pretty nice.  Dates coming next ... documenting the dates. Not really sure how the dates are read, maybe someone can tell me.



Throw those things in the dishwasher.

Darrell,  never thought of that.  A little degreasing prior to cut the heavy grime.  Thanks

Haven't cleaned my car belts with this but have used it on my tow truck belts......Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Tub and Tile Cleaner.  Don't have to degrease, it will do that for you....just spray on, let it absorb into the belt and scrub with a plastic bristle brush.  After cleaning, wipe down with paper towels and then rinse in warm water.  May have to repeat, but it will be worth the effort.  My truck belts looked like new when I finished.

Liquid Laundry Soap straight from the bottle, let it soak in for a bit, then warm water and light scrub with plastic bristle brush.  Rinse well and air dry.  They will be clean and soft.

oxyclean and hot water, the labels on the belts are sometimes a little tattered, so be careful if they are already damaged.

Has anyone ever taken these covers off ?  Wanted to remove to protect the insides from cleaner/water and I don't want to crack them guess how they come off.

They snap right off, although
I have never removed them in cleaning the belts.
I use plastic lens polish on the covers to polish them.

Darrell, if you get a chance, I would much appreciate it if you could verify a couple of details of your open element air cleaner base, which I noted early on in this thread. With specific regard to the vent tube that enters the air cleaner base from the passenger side valve cover breather hose, I'd like to know if the elbow turns out below the base at a 90-degree or 45-degree angle to the horizontal, the approximate position (o'clock) at which it exits the base, and also if the tube is 1" in diameter. Any help (or pics!) would be great!!

Here ya go Tim

The steel tube off the breather/arrestor is 1" in diameter.  It's less than a 45 degree angle downward off the breather,  I'd guess more like 30 degrees and it's 90 degrees outward from the front.

Hope this answers your questions, need more let me know

I have used James' Oxyclean method on three different sets of seat belts with great success. I did not remove the plastic covers and dried the buckles with compressed air. They look awesome when done. You would not believe how dirty the water gets from this process. It is black.
