Hi all.

I am  refurbishing my Spyder's hood frame and need to replace the tensioning straps.
Does anyone have any sources for these webbing straps?
I am not sure whether this is special webbing because of the nature of what job it is doing or any old webbing will do?
Also I have seen cars with buckles of some description and one with velcro fastening for the adjusting the tension.
Does anyone know what the original straps adjusters were like and where I might source the webbing and adjusters please?
Cheers

Here you go.https://www.webbingbucklesstraps.co.uk/  I used plastic clamp down in place of buckles because they are far more adjustable.

Thanks Eric. That looks like the plastic cam buckles.
Presumably you gave them the width and lengths and had them make them up ready for pop riveting onto the frame?
