1) When were the tie down straps brown and when were they black?
2) When the switch from leather to imitation leather?
3) Is the answer different for Sprint versus Spider?
4) What is the total length including buckle for each variation?

It is time for this to get nailed down for posterity, before the information is lost forever.

Carl,
These were holding my original toolkit that came with my December-built '61 Spider. I thought they were leather, and I marinated them for 6 months inside a Ziplock with leather conditioner, but while they are much more supple now, upon closer inspection they are not leather but look like my original rebound strap material, only a thinner version, with a leather-looking covering on either side. They have two grooved lines in the middle running their length on the outside of the belt. Hope that helps.
Dave
