I've ordered a 5 point harness for my build, and I'd like some pads for the 3" straps, but every single one I've found has a massive logo of the belt/seat manufacturer, and I refuse to advertise for them. I can find logo-free pads for 2" wide automobile seat belts, but none for a 3" belt. I don't want to put them on backwards, the logos are typically patches and would be annoying to have pressed against my shoulder.

Anyone know where I could find these?

My new interior has matched wannabe leather ones. It wasn't much to have 2 extra pairs supplied with so they can be cleaned after a sweaty flight.

It would be safer to cover up the logos than cutting them off.
Are logos likely to be structural on pads?
I have just asked a budget harness manufacturer if their harnesses can be ordered unadorned. Logos are going to look wrong on a replica of an 80 year old plane. This thread made me want to find out their weight and cost.

Just be cautious about cutting structural stitching.

Ask an old (1970s vintage) parachute digger why that is a bad habit .....
