    So was taking apart the interior for a deep clean. Removed the front floor seat belts and foolishly broke the clear/white bar that hold the seat beat into the cover. I don't know what is called so not sure where to search.. Where can can I find them and/or does anyone have a couple of them? Thanks

    Were there two of those in the one housing or are you making sure you have a spare incase the other side is brittle?
    Like yourself I have never been that deep in seatbelt retractor housings to recognize that part either.
    Probably the easiest thing to do would be to just buy one or two used black retractors from someone unless you want date coded tags (might be able to see yours on the new ones or buy new ones (but will look “too new”).
    I have been digging like crazy in my small shed all week (barely a dent in it) BUT I DID see some black seat belts in the mix. I know one set is an original complete date coded set out of a 1970 GSX that was sold while apart & mine were found years later so definitely can’t break that seat up but tell me what year and style (Deluxe?) big or small buckle style and I will check mine tomorrow.
    If I have a spare(s) complete male style retractor & housing you need you can just swap me some lil Fritz trinkets for it if that sounds good or someone else might chime in : )
    It’s “always something” when you are trying to make some progress ain’t it? :mad:

    That looks like a late '72 front retractor with the Buzzer Warning. Started 1 Jan '72. I may have one, but conditions here are not good, for good plastic parts - heat, time, altitude and Ozone. Have to wonder if one of the Seat Belt specialists might have it - Snake Oyl, etc.

    I had a chance to dig through my pile of seatbelts and they were all the large style units so unfortunately I can’t help you out on those sorry about that.

    Thanks for checking.. One side still snaps in, i will just glue the other side.
