    Has anyone tried upholstery fabric spray paint like this:

    I'm pretty sure Lowes carries something like this. Hobby Lobby may as well.
    OK...so way late here, but...

    I have used Duplicolor Upholstery and Vinyl coating for a ton of stuff (usually just on vinyl). I wound up giving it a shot on my girth belt and it worked pretty good. Not a lot of colors to choose from, though. To get the dark, blood red color I wanted, I had to saturate the thing (used almost an entire can) in dark red and then mist on charcoal grey. Not exactly what I wanted (and the belt is a bit too small for my gut), so I'll probably replace it and do the stain method. It looks to give a much better coverage and probably has lots of color choices.

    $14 bucks for the belt from horseloverz & $11 for the Olympic red pilgrim stain (along with $0.88 for a paint pan) saved me lots of money! Instead of dipping the belt into the stain, I simply pours the whole can onto the belt in the pan. I got great coverage with out lots of working it in.

    Results are fantastic!!!

    The color I used can be picked up at any Lowe's:

    Minwax water-based stain, #13 Spice Red

    They have to mix it for you, as it is a decoration tint formula. But that color is a standard Minwax tint color. Hope this has been helpful.

    So is the #13 Spice Red specific to Lowe's or is that the Minwax number for Spice Red that they have the color code for? Just want to be sure so I can be specific when I go in.

    Thanks,

    Sean

    This is the first time I've quoted myself I think....

    Any way, Big thanks to dsonik1 for explaining in detail to me the #13 Spice Red color. If you get the "Minwax water-based clear tint based" quart can and take it to the paint counter, tell them you want it colored to the minwax #13 Spice color to which either Lowe's or Home Depot will have the color code for. I thought for some reason the Spice Red #13 was specific to Lowe's either that or I thought you had to specifically buy the Spice color only to find out that Minwax doesn't produce it to my knowledge so that's why you have to get the clear tint and have it dyed to the Minwax Spice color.

    I hope this helps someone else because for some reason I just wasn't getting it on how to get the Spice Red color so hopefully this will clarify for anyone else who is struggling with it like me. Sometimes I'm slow that way.

    Where can you pick up the girth belt with the leather on the one side? I did some digging in the forum searches and the best i found was this link some one had posted.

    When you guys are picking your girth belt sizes are you going with pants size or larger?

    I went a couple of inches bigger, but the girth belt won't actually fit all the way around your waist, anyway. Specifically when you've got layers of armor on. You're going to have to use some 1" nylon strapping to buckle it behind you:

    Just make sure you get real mohair. I got mine online at Dover Sadlery, and it's perfect:

    I just got the stain at Home Depot on Friday. The color is just "#13 spice", not "#13 spice red". Some of the stain dried on the buckels and it will NOT come off... Any ideas on removal?

    A little experience with DoverSaddlery.com

    Ordered a Girth belt from them a couple weeks ago. Never got any notice from them and my paypal said pending. I finally called them last week and they told me the belts are back ordered till mid October, I told them that was fine and I could wait. I checked the status of my paypal yesterday and my order had been canceled. Im not sure what is going on with them. So I just placed an order now with horseloverz.com. Hope its better then Dover Saddlery.
