Hi Oliver,

Seatbelt webbing is available from upholstery outlets that carry automotive 
upholstery.  UFO (Upholstery Fabric Outlet) in San Diego carries it in many 
different widths and colors, along with all different types of lift-the-dots 
and zippers suitable for tonneau and ragtop repair.  Any upholstery shop can 
stitch up the seat belt webbing for you in any length you choose on your 
existing hardware.  Yes, it won't be approved by whomever, yadda yadda, but 
it'll work.

And Arco gas in Southern CA is c**p and always made my B run noticeably
