    Of all the cars I've done they all have had their original seat belts which I restored. I'm doing an M series which should have Klippen seat belts but had VW belts. Is there any good alternative out there?

    I have a pair of the belts with the big head and the star burst emblem. Not the full belt just the short piece with the buckle. Not sure if it is for an M-series.

    I have the same issue on my own Dino Jon. One of the buckles has actually shattered and I haven't come up with a suitable (in my eyes solution). Since seat belts are a safety item replacing them with a non original set does not result in a judging points reduction. I may just order a vintage looking retractable set, sans the VW logo.

    This is a similar new 3 point non-retractable belt that looks like the original Klippen. From what I know, all M-Series were Euro Spec (I may be wrong :/ )

    These guys might have something that'll work.

    Spoke with them 15 years ago, more or less. At the time they seemed willing to try anything to help with decent repairs or replacements. (Although I think the conversation was about a '61 Porsche 365B Super 90.)

    I was offered 1 NOS Klippen seat belt so I'm halfway there.
