I'm REALLY interested in this one... I'd love to have a Returns belt that actually opens & closes like the movie one...

Re: '89/Returns Working Belt Buckle


Here’s what he told me to write:
Ok, first off, I’m having my girlfriend post this, so I won’t be able to respond immediately (cause I’m at work). I’ll call her on break and try to get her to post my replies to your posts that she reads to me. Anyways, I’ve been working on it off and on for the past 5 months. I started with 3 solid buckles, but ended up using 2, just in case I screwed up. The reason it took so long was every idea I had to make it work, I couldn’t find or fabricate it the right parts for it.That and I really don’t have the time to do stuff anymore. (It’s a lot harder to do things when you work 7 days a week… 2 jobs suck). Then, by chance, a few weeks ago, I opened a box of Cheerio’s that had this NASCAR toy in it. Well, not being a fan, I decided to break it. Just kidding (I had to put your NASCAR fans here on edge). I actually decided I’d put it together for my little brother. While putting it together, I noticed the launcher. Well, that’s when the light bulb sparked me before it blew. Long story short, he got the car, I got the launcher, I made a mold of the button off of the 3rd buckle, and now I have a working ‘89/Returns buckle. The middle button works and all. Push it and it pulls apart. Now I would like to thank:
- Janty (for providing the buckles)
- General Mills (for the launcher piece)
- Bic Pens (for the spring I used from one of their pens)
- Dremel (for their minimate)
- Bondo
- Superglue
- Plaster of Paris
- Blue RTV silicone
- X-ACTO
- And everyone here at BOTB
Here’s the pic’s (sorry if the button isn’t perfect in a few pics, its not attached yet. It’s held on with sticky tac. I’ll attach it after it’s painted.

Re: '89/Returns Working Belt Buckle


Very cool! Just one step closer to a super accurate suit. :up

Now my question is, how would you be able to adjust the belt if someone else were to wear it? Can the belt size be adjusted behind the buckle?
