these would be the same as the "S Suzuki" pads found on ebay, cost would be $20/pair shipped to anywhere in Canada/US via airmail (each additional pair should be $16) & probably the same to anywhere else in the world.
they would have the Red Suzuki "S" and then TeamSwift in white.
like the hoodie/t-shirt group buy, we'll need a minimum 40 pairs to make this happen.

They're mainly for 4 point harnesses. They lay heavy on your shoulders. And they dig into your neck sometimes.

Ok, so my sarcasim is mistaken for a serious question lol, yeah the seatbelt pads were originally designed for people using 2 inch wide full harnesses, they are narrow and can dig in, however I (and most competitors) use 3 inch wide belts because in an accident 2 inch belts can stretch far enough for your helmet to hit the steering wheel (Ouch).

Somewhere along the line somebody thought it would be cool to use on a lap diagonal belt ( probably the same person that put neon lights under their car), personally I don't crash while using a standard seat belt so I don't need any padding for my chest but I do like Blue-fishes answer "and it will show your a part of TeamSwift.net " hmm I would prefer a small sticker to put on the side window me thinks, does anyone know if anyone has made/makes teamswift stickers???

So true! Ask my ex that as she rammed my convertible into a concrete wall at god knows how fast. Her head met the top bar going across the windshield. Gave her a nice concussion. The seat broke loose, so I guess the harness saved her life tho. She would have been ejected with the stock seatbelt.

OK, maybe thats it, I am 6'5 !!! I'm the tallest guy at the car club with the smallest car :lol: and no I've never needed seat belt pads, the only people that have seat belt pads over here are Asian boy racers in their Evo 7's and the occassional Grandma in her Suzuki Alto.
Heck count me in, I'll buy a pair for my Nana! How do I pay?

like the hoodie group-buy, when we get enough people saying they're in, i'll let everyone know about sending payments. paypal is :king: , but if we don't have 40 pairs, i can't afford to make up the difference to make it happen.
