New from Ted's Modeling is a product that has multiple uses.
Use this material for blower restraint straps or seat belts and racing harness belts. It has the satin frabic texture needed for realism.
The harness buckle shown in the above photo is Pro Tech's 5-Point Racing Harness. It's a tight fit, so cut the end at an angle and put a small amount of Future on the tip to keep it from fraying. Once dry, it will slide right through the Pro Tech buckles.
This material will also fit Machined Aluminum Specialties' Seat Belt set.
Other uses are transmission and oil pan straps as well as hold-down straps in a diorama. It can be wrapped around an object as webbing or other appearences.
The blower straps are shown on a WIP engine for reference only.

It took a while, but I wanted to update. Teds suggestion is spot on, just takes a bit longer.
This product was ordered with high hopes of making blower tie down straps easier to work with. Due to the fabric, no matter how I cut it even with a fresh xacto, it frayed when using blower P/E pieces. [Ted's comment - Use a little Future on the ends before sliding through the PE loops. There aren't any frayed ends in the photo when I did this]
I'll stick with my standard - strips of tiny white surgical tape painted flat black. No glue is required as the PE metal parts stick to the tape with ease.
