Just read this post whilst searching for G threads. It is easy to re-web the seatbelts.
You will need to put the mounting tab of the reel in a vice whilst you work. Most old inertia reels will need to be at a certain angle to retract the webbing. Pull out the webbing until you see the reel. You will see the end of the webbing has a sewn loop around a pin that seats either side of the reel. IMPORTANT. jamb a screwdriver behind the pin and webbing to hold the tension on the reel. If you don't and you lose the tension your reel is scrap. You should now be able prise out the pin an push the pin out of the loop. Sew a new loop in your new webbing and pop it back in.

Is that pin as readily accessible on reels with the pyrotechnic pretensioners?
I know my 1996 has those. Not sure when they were introduced.

There are local shops here that do new webbing as well. Call around to a bunch of auto upholstery shop near you.
