Default Ha! Pontiac trick box - seat belt retractor covers

So, I'm slowly peeling off the keeper bits from the code 522 interior in the '66 2+2 parts car.

Seat belts appear to have been rarely used, if at all. My cali car is missing them, so, kismet, I win.

Manage to pop the covers from the retractor base with a little hook tool. But alas, the buckle from the belt can't pass thru the cover opening.

I'm living a Chuck Berry song in my own garage!

What's the story - just leave them on there and mask the webbing before painting the cover?

God bless GM, but this is a pisser... and I'm not shucking out for the repo parts that are the wrong color...
