Colored Seat Belts?

I thought it might be cool to get red or blue seat belts to match either the red stitching or the WRB paint on my BRZ. Anyone know of anywhere that I could get such a thing?

I have seen where I can buy the colored seat belt webbing online before, but I don't have the means necessary to correctly attach it to the mounting hardware so that it remains safe.

Upholstery shop can replace the webbing (that's the technical term for the actual belt material), but I think they'd be apprehensive about messing with such a new car.

Send in your mechanism and webbing and they will replace the webbing with a different color for 75 bucks. Sounds like a pretty decent price and they have pretty good reviews.

Unfortunately they only carry and will do the standard colors. Too bad, I got excited for a minute.

Might ask them if they will do it if you supply your own webbing?

Maybe color dye? I think you may wanna look into seat belt covers or aftermarket harnesses. Status customizes seats, im fairly certain they'd do the same for harnesses

Kinda what I figured, I was hoping someone made a drop in replacement, but this looks like it is probably the most plausible way.

Looks like they are showing just the standard blackish gray. I wonder what they would say about me sending in my own webbing? I have found places you can buy just the webbing in about any color.

I am not a big fan of aftermarket harnesses. I use mine primarily as a daily driver, so they just aren't practical. As far as seat belt covers, they always just look kinda janky to me.
