Took my 2500M to the British car show in Hellertown, PA yesterday. It was a beautiful day and a great venue for the show. The turnout was good with a nice mix LBC's. This was my 1st time at Hellertown and to my surprise the TVR's had their own class for judging with a total of 4 TVR's attending. Met Tony Hess and Ken Gerchufsky and their spouses. Tony had 2 of his 2500's on display. A yellow & silver beautiful rerstoration and Ken had his green "machine". All 3 cars are outsatnding restorations. Mine being more a "work in progress"! But she's a "10" to me......
My trip to Hellertown was about 100mi one way of mostly interstate driving. This was the longest road trip in the car and she performed well and is a good driver.
My question for the group is regarding seatbelts. I need to relpace my original Kangol's as the retractor's work only part time!! Anyone know where to rebuild or have replacement suggestions?

Glad you were able to go. It was my Mom's birthday (80th), so I was not free to take my car (MGB).

Anyway, if you are not fussy with originality, you can get retractable belts from Whitney ~Here~ (http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/Product/Pr-p_Product.CATENTRY_ID:2006838/c-10101/Nty-1/p-2006838/Ntx-mode+matchallpartial/N-10101/tf-Browse/s-10101/Ntk-AllTextSearchGroup?Ntt=seat+belts)

You can also get non-retractable 3-pt belts from them (which I prefer) for a lot less ~HERE~ (http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/Product/Pr-p_Product.CATENTRY_ID:2006840/c-10101/Nty-1/p-2006840/Ntx-mode+matchallpartial/N-10101/tf-Browse/s-10101/Ntk-AllTextSearchGroup?Ntt=seat+belts) (about $40).

http://www.seatbeltpros.com is another source. Less expensive than JC Whitney. There is a selection of styles and large selection of colors as well.
