seatbelt possibilities

Recommended Posts

So I bought a 1980 210 wagon and the drivers side seatbelt is in less than safe condition. I drove the car home with the seatbelt lazily drooped over me since it was stuck all the way out and the belt itself is in tatters. So my question is what possible alternatives do I have to put in and keep a "stock" look. It's damn near impossible to source original ones online either new or used, so are there any alternatives that would fit inside the panelling. (720?200sx?310?)

 

pictures of my situation soon to come...

Go to any local RV or Dune Buggy [or possibly early VW] shop and say a prayer !  Note  that some early 67 or 70s Datsuns had narrower than current standard seat belt widths.

What year is your 210, and what interior color? I may have a set around here somewhere.

The ones I (may) have would be blue and out of a Sedan.  The catalog I have seems to show they would work for Sedan or Wagon.

 

Hope to do some looking this afternoon.  If I do have them will PM some pics and we can go from there.

If you have light fuzz run it quickly over a lighter flame and the threads will shrivel up and shrink. Try Armor-all to lube it and prevent fraying.

And I'm not saying the B210 uses the exact same belts as a Jeep Wrangler. I'm saying the Jeep Wrangler uses a fairly generic belt that can be used in almost anything,.    B)

Mines a 210 and not a b210. The 1200 wiki shows that they’re extremely different. My biggest problem Is finding a mechanism that is small enough to fit in the shallow b pillar and under the plastic cover.

Ah. I still stand by the statement though.

In what way?

I'm probably a bad person to ask because I will just get something close-ish and make it fit...   ^_^

It shows two seperate retractors for the shoulder and lap belts

 

So B210 is dual and 210 is single? I've seen the B210 both ways depending on year. And if yours is single, then the aftermarket options seem like a no brainer?

Early B210 is definitely dual, might be the later B210 that went single?

FWIW, my '75 was dual, my '78 was single.

 

It used to be the go to thing when a late B210 hit the junkyard here to get the seat belts and brake booster, as both were a great fit in a 510.   ^_^

My biggest issue is the mounting points and something that fits in the b pillar. The current retractor lays flatter than most since the b pillar is so shallow. I’m gonna look into the Jeep belts though and see if they fit
